Eating Only Eggs Has Surprising Results

Jonathon Daily

Eggs were long believed to cause excessive heart problems. Studies like this one published in Nutrients in 2018 in recent years have suggested that eggs may have had an unfairly negative reputation.

This was partly due to a general ignorance of the distinction between "good" cholesterol and "bad" cholesterol and partially because eggs are associated with guilt.

Eggs are appealing due to their nutritional value, ease, and versatility of preparation. I cooked a frittata with some leftover salmon to start my week by eating eggs. It was topped with feta cheese and served over arugula delicately seasoned with lemon and olive oil.

The following day was busy as I hurried to pack for a vacation, so I bought a tiny quiche from my neighborhood farm. I had half of it for lunch and a salad, then the rest for breakfast the morning before I went.

Are Eggs Healthy?

The Harvard University blog notes that the daily maximum for cholesterol was 300 milligrams. Therefore earlier health recommendations advised a person to consume no more than one to two eggs weekly. But things have changed. According to Harvard Health today, eating up to seven eggs a week is likely safe for the average healthy person.

Although eggs are "very healthy," registered dietitian and nutritionist Blanca Garcia believes it's crucial to remember that this does not permit you to eat three-egg meals daily. The diner's lumberjack breakfast may have other adverse effects on your health.

For my trial, I typically consumed two to three eggs every day. I'll keep hard-boiled eggs on hand since they make the ideal high-protein snack for mid-afternoon or before a workout.

If you enjoy hard-boiled eggs, the U.S. Department of Agriculture advises they'll remain tasty for a week in the refrigerator. I'll keep using leftover vegetables, meats, and cheese in omelets, frittatas, and quiches since they are quick, easy, and healthy.
