Most people who are trying to lose weight think they should only eat egg whites, but the yolks are actually good for us, and are wonderful for detoxing the liver. They contain powerful sulfur compounds that keep your liver clean and since our liver is the body’s main fat-burning organ it’s important to keep it clean and free of toxins.
Eggs are loaded with protein as well as mood-promoting omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, B vitamins, and iodide. You can buy Omega-3 enriched eggs which can be loaded with antioxidants for the eyes and brain, as well as cholesterol-protective amino acids. Eggs also contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which are antioxidants that are good for the eyes and help lower risk of macular degeneration.
