To yolk or not to yolk?


Choline, lutein, and zeaxanthin found only found in the yolks do wonders for your body 🌈 diet isn’t just about counting macronutrients (carbs, proteins, and fats).


Choline contributes to methylation (a process that helps your body repair & produce DNA). It supports the structural membrane of cells, and helps produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that functions in muscle control, memory, focus, and heartbeat regulation.


Carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin can help reduce macular degeneration.


Are your cholesterol levels high?

Eggs are safe! You can enjoy your yolks 2-4 times per week. Studies show that saturated fats found in butter, red meats, full fat dairy products, contribute more to elevated cholesterol levels, than the actual cholesterol found in foods.
