The Eggcellence of Eggs

Muhammad al-Baqir, peace be upon him, said: “Whoever does not have children, let him eat eggs and eat them often, for it increases progeny.” Contrary to popular views, eggs are heart-healthy and can help to prevent heart disease, and may actually lower blood cholesterol. Eggs also promote healthy eyes by reducing chances for cataracts. Eggs are nutrient-rich and are a good source of protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, and sulphur. Eggs are well-known for their ability to promote healthy brain function; thus they are also very beneficial for the functions of the nervous system. Eat eggs that are prepared in a healthy way. Eat fewer fried eggs and more hard- and soft-boiled, poached, and sunny-side-up eggs. Also try any of the wonderful baked egg dishes in our cookbook.
It is best to get organic free-range eggs. Most commercially produced eggs are inferior in vitamins and minerals, due to the lack of sunlight, that these chickens receive. They are also lacking in precious Omega Oils that free range chickens get, when allowed to eat bugs, worms and forage. When you eat free range eggs note the deep orange color of them, in comparison to regular super market eggs. This is proof of their richness in Vitamin A, and other beneficial nutrients.
