Apologies to the Egg

>> 5/17/10

Eggs-speaking for myself if not all cardiologists-we were wrong, and I'm sorry. In the seventies we didn't understand that our bodies made cholesterol out of saturated fat. Instead we blamed high human cholesterol on food that was high in cholesterol, and that put you in the public health pillory-(you too shrimp). In fact, most of the cholesterol in our bodies is made by our own livers from saturated fat that we eat. So if you need to lower your levels of bad LDL cholesterol-concentrate on decreasing your intake of foods high in saturated fat like cheese, butter and ground beef.

Eggs from the local farmers market-while more expensive-come from chickens that are allowed to roam and eat what they are born to eat-grass and bugs, NOT processed cornmeal. These eggs are especially high in Omega-3 fatty acids-a good fat that keeps heart and blood vessel cells healthy. So think about offering an egg to your kids next snack time-boiled, fried or scrambled in just a touch of canola oil. At 75 calories with lots of protein it will cost the same and power them longer than that sugar loaded "breakfast bar" or "fruit rollup".

Crunch Time

Gives any well-intentioned cook, completely possible ways to get more real, fresh food onto the table without being shackled to a recipe or breaking the bank or getting an uprising from finicky eaters.
We are big on quick food prep - Chop Therapy - to make real food into fast food and we use what we term flavor savors that give a flavor punch to foods instead of using preservatives or processed ingredients.
We love getting the whole family involved in the food preparation effort. We also use some momgenutity for presenting real food in our homes so it stands a chance against the marketing assault of the Happy Meal.
Please share your ideas and share our posts with anyone you know who might want more real food in their meals.
