Eggs are so amazingly versatile and are a reminder that we can be anything we want to be. Pregnant! Eat healthy eggs for healthy eggs! Eggs are the most perfect of protein that is essential for the number and quality of healthy eggs and sperm, and is required for fertilisation. The development of the embryo also requires adequate protein.
Don’t forget to use the egg yolk- this is the most important part that contains choline. Like folate, higher choline levels are associated with lower risk of neural tube defects. Iodine is essential for a healthy thyroid gland, hormonal regulation, ovulation and the prevention of miscarriage.
Contains: Protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, choline, iodine
On my plate: Be creative with eggs. Eggs are a reminder that we can be anything we want to be; omelets, fritattas, scrambled with smashed avo on paleo toast, fried, poached, boiled, add to fried rice, add to smoothies, buckwheat pancakes, in healthy cakes, slices, deserts. Be sure to cook the egg whites, otherwise a protein in the egg whites called avidin will block biotin (a type of B vitamin) absorption.
