Eggs Are Healthier Than What Most People Think

Eggs Are Healthier Than What Most People Think

Eggs have the ability to radically transform your life! For the better! I’ve never met a food source quite like the egg! Interesting looking, with a mind of it’s own, so easy going … allowing themselves to be fried, boiled, scrambled, flipped, baked, mixed in with others, dyed, hunted, juggled, the list is endless! Once they’re peeled, they will happily dance out of your hands, with an attitude like none other! And if carelessly placed on the counter top, will gleefully stroll quickly to the floor! Their qualities are exceptional and that’s why I’m going to explain to you why an egg is more than “just an egg!”

Lets begin at the beginning … egg facts … 1 deliciously large egg contains:

  • About 78 calories
  • 5.3 grams total fat
  • 0.6 grams total carbohydrates
  • 6.3 grams protein

Lecithin … which is contained in the egg’s vibrantly hued yolk, will radically transform your life! Efficiently and happily, helping your body to rid itself of excess stored fuel, breaking it down! Our bodies are dependent upon food sources to get adequate amounts of lecithin and according to Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute, one of the best sources of lecithin are eggs. Did I mention how amazing eggs were?

The white part of the egg is rich in selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. The egg yolk, also contains some vitamin D, which aids in calcium absorption and assists in preventing osteoporosis, vital for a productive life!

Muscle building testosterone is created from cholesterol and as such, the egg is a perfect source for a building block for testosterone!

Eggs have a wonderfully high protein content, satisfying your body and mind, with long lasting energy! Perfect for enjoying before exercise, school, work, or any activity that requires endurance!

They also contain an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered essential fatty acids. They are necessary for human health, but unfortunately your body cannot produce them, you have to get them through the foods you eat, umm.edu

Eggs are an incredible brain food! If you have important matters to take care of that require concentration and thought, eggs are your “go to” food source! The choline in them is a key component of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is essential for sleep, memory, attention and mood! Simply amazing!

Your beautiful hair, skin and nails are strengthened, because eggs contain all the amino acids that are needed to build keratins, a group of tough, fibrous proteins that form the structural framework of certain cells!

Fun Facts …

Egg coloring began in the Middle Ages! Members of the nobility and royalty exchanged eggs that were covered in gold leaf and those who were poorer, dyed their eggs pretty colors and then they exchanged them as gifts!

Indulge in some of these delectable egg recipes …

  • Eggs Benedict
  • Eggs Florentine
  • Frittata Florentine
  • Egg Salad
  • Peppers and Eggs
  • Omelets
  • Egg Sandwich
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Eggs Over Easy
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Poached Eggs

… there are endless combinations for you to indulge in and benefit from!

Wonderful Travel Tip …

Eggs make an ideal travel companion! I hard boil one dozen eggs before any trip, place them in quart sized baggies, then place them in an insulated bag with a cold pack. They help to maintain my energy and mood in the airport, on the airplane and once I land. They make a wonderful snack at my destination! I place them in my refrigerator in my hotel room and enjoy them between meals, saving me from eating less desirable foods!

I hope I have inspired you to look at eggs in a whole new way! Give them a chance to show you why they are one exquisitely designed food!

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
