THE INCREDIBLE EGG

It's the year of the incredible egg!

Eggs of all kinds are everywhere. We see paper, plastic, chocolate and yes, the original "incredible egg!" Well, "most of us" got some good news from the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee's recommendation to lift the limit on dietary cholesterol. (Each individual should always follow their own doctor's advice.)

The study shows that in "most of us" the saturated fat rather than the cholesterol we eat  is what significantly raises our blood cholesterol. Foods like shellfish and eggs are no longer part of the restriction. Perfect timing for the upcoming Easter egg season!

One egg is 70 calories and is packed full of vitamins, minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants. The fact that it is full of good protein can help keep us alert and give us more
physical energy. WOW!

Never fear Food Network has come up with "50" Egg Ideas to help us incorporate eggs into our diet. Now that's alot of ideas!

Do you love deviled eggs? I've got a recipe that was passed along from my blogger friend Beth that is unbelieveably outstanding! Every time I serve them to guests they request the recipe. Take a look at this yummy high-protein food and see the recipe below:



Ingredients:

Hard boiled eggs
Mustard (I use French's)
Curry
Currants
Mayonaise
Slivered almonds or chives sprinkled on top

There is no magic number as far as measuring. Adjust the ingredients to your own taste. The unusual combination of curry and currants is so delicious. Your guests will LOVE them!

I hope most of you can now enjoy a delicious "incredible edible" egg without the guilt!



Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!
