How to buy eggs?

Buy eggs enriched with omega-3. Some are expensive, but they are much better for you. Study after study have shown that omega-3 fatty acids help everything - from mental health (improving memory and reducing the risk of depression) to the heart. The recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids for good general health is about 450 mg. Research has shown that many people do not get food even half that amount. If you eat a week or less than one serving of oily fish or cold water fish such as salmon or mackerel, it is difficult to get adequate supply of omega-3 fatty acids. Why would you use eggs enriched essential nutrient that greatly assist in achieving this ideal goal.


Do not worry because cholesterol is true that eggs are high in cholesterol. But the real culprit in raising blood cholesterol levels, and also the increased risk of heart attack or stroke, in fact, the amount of saturated fat in foods - not the amount of cholesterol. Medium-size egg may contain ten times more cholesterol than 25 g semi-hard cheese, but more likely it will affect the cheese increased cholesterol in the blood because it contains almost seven times more saturated fat than eggs. Eggs are by no means bad for our health, moreover, contain much good. It is one of the few food sources of vitamin D, and also provide good amounts of vitamins A, E, B2 and B12. Also rich in choline, which research has shown that it can play a key role in the brain. Several experiments on animals show that choline stimulates memory and learning skills. A paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Uournal of the American Medical Association), which compared the eating habits of more than 100 000 men and women in the U.S. for 14 years, found that those who ate one egg a day is not any increased risk of heart disease or stroke. The official advice of the British Association for Nutrition (British Dietetic Association) and the American Heart Association (American Heart Association) is that eating an egg a day is unlikely to have any effect on blood cholesterol levels, provided that the amount of saturated fat in your diet remains low.

Ignore the aggressive advertising of white shell eggs are as good as that brown shell. Shell color is determined by the type of chicken. Color has nothing to do with the nutritional value of eggs.

Test the freshness To verify that the egg is still good to eat, put it in a jar or a bowl of cold salted water; if sink, fresh and enjoy it, if you stay afloat, throw it away.

Make it easier stripping Pierce the egg before you cook in the shell, and later will make it easier to peel. To do this, take a pin and thrust is approximately 1 cm at the wide end of the egg. This will let enough air to separate the whites from the shell membrane that adheres. This is especially good advice when you hard-boiled eggs must remain whole, so you can neatly cut for decoration or for a salad, or if you want to fill and serve as an appetizer or party.

Freeze the egg whites separately how many times a prescription for use only egg yolks, egg whites and put all together in a bowl and leave in refrigerator for later? And when they need it again, you could remember how much you have meringue or how long they stood in the refrigerator. Here's a better way to keep whites. Take a clean container for each section of the ice and pour in the egg and so one of them freeze. Frozen cubes move the plastic bag, close it, clearly mark the date and return to freezer. So you clearly know how much you have saved the meringue and how old they are. If necessary, remove the egg whites and leave overnight to let dissolve. For a lighter omelet, whole eggs, add some meringue. From frozen meringue can still prepare a good cake, though you can get as large and airy as the quantity of snow from fresh meringue.

Keep them in a carton. Keeping eggs in the carton in which you bought them and will help not to lose moisture and prevent odors from other foods in the refrigerator. Eggs always stack wide end facing up - so stay fresh longer.

Season with salt egg broken egg has been dropped on the floor and it is difficult with a damp cloth to pick up the slippery mess - you seem like you are more spills. Stop by and collect it well with salt. Let them stand for about 5 minutes and after that you should make it easy to pick up a damp paper towel.
