ARE EGGS HEALTHY, AND THE TRUTH ABOUT EGG YOLKS
Are eggs healthy? Absolutely.
This article talks about the nutrition of eggs, and discusses the broader topic of ethics.
Eggs do contain a large variety of nutrients, as well as dietary cholesterol. While the latter does not appear to cause nor promote cardiovascular diseases in healthy persons, diabetics may need to exert some caution if eggs are not consumed alongside a weight loss program. – Examine.com
The article of the quote above goes on to say that there isn’t an increased risk (of stroke and coronary artery disease) in persons consuming one-six eggs a week or “greater than six eggs a week” relative to no egg consumption overall.
That means I can potentially eat 16 eggs a day without any risk of my heart exploding. It also means what I’ve been reading in vegan, fitness, and mainstream magazines is either intentional misinformation or unintentional ignorance.
Can we compassionately eat eggs?
Yes, I think it’s possible. Some vegans will argue that all egg production is inhumane, that even if the egg carton states they are “free range” or “cage free” somewhere down the line the hens are still being mistreated. This can be true in some cases, but not all. This is more misguided information being unfairly widespread. In reality, we can get eggs from local farmer’s markets that are compassionately raised/produced.
Recently, it has been well-documented that plants themselves have a form consciousness, so we don’t truly know if they experience any physical pain just because they don’t have a central nervous system.
Well, actually, some experts say they do:
A number of studies have shown that plants feel pain, and vegetables are picked and often eaten while still alive. – Phil Cohen, Sydney, Australia
This is the pattern of science since its birth. The moment we think we “know” something, we discover something else that disproves the previous “truth” and completely changes our perception about the world we live in.
Producing food inhumanely (plants, animals, or abuse of human labor) is never a good thing. Humans must consume life in some form for nutrition. However, we can all agree that unnecessary suffering doesn’t have to be a part of the equation.
Are egg whites healthy?
Yes, they are, but you should think twice about ordering that egg white omelet.
By tossing the yolk, you’re essentially throwing out the most nutrient dense part of the egg. Yolks are rich with B-vitamins, trace minerals, vitamin A, folate, choline, lutein, and other powerful nutrients.
There’s no question that vegetarian bodybuilding is easier with eggs integrated into the meal plan.
In fact, they are one of 7 “fatty” foods for a flat stomach.
Eggs are one of the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.” They are among the most nutritious things we can eat without question, containing virtually every nutrient we need. Omega-3 enriched eggs are even healthier.
Little-Known Fact: There is not much protein in the actual yolk (relative to the whites); however, the protein in the yolk has a high concentration of the amino acid Leucine.
For those who want an alternative, you can consider this egg substitute below.
VEGAN EGG SUBSTITUTE THAT’S MADE OUT OF PLANTS
Vegan egg substitute made out of peas, sorghum, and nine other plants.
This High-Tech startup is shaking up the $9 Billion Dollar Chicken Industry, by demonstrating that we can create something more effective with a compassionate vision (eating less animals). It has been said these plant-based eggs are healthier, stay fresher longer, and cost approximately 19 percent less than real eggs.
From what I can tell, the bottom line is that they are using science and culinary expertise to replicate egg products at a fraction of the cost. The good news is that have already made their way to the shelves of stores like Whole Foods.
How do they taste?
In blind taste tests, Bill Gates, Tony Blair, Fast CoExist’s Ariel Schwartz, and Huffington Post’s Nile Cappello couldn’t tell the difference between products baked with Beyond Eggs and those that weren’t.

It avoids vitamins deficiency and provides you with a lot of proteins, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Instead of saying things like “I think a plant-based diet is good for athletes and bodybuilders,” the V3 Vegetarian Bodybuilding System claims “I know a plant-based diet is good for athletes and bodybuilders, and I have results to prove it.”
