Don't eat too many eggs, people used to caution, because they will make your bad cholesterol soar. But as it turns out, these protein powerhouses have gotten a bum rap. In recent years, studies have shown that "higher consumption of eggs (up to one egg per day) is not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease or stroke."
We'll do you one better. Eggs are an excellent source of vitamin D, which is important for bone health and protecting against cancer and other diseases. People with Type 2 diabetes have trouble retaining it and other nutrients because of poor kidney function. But according to a recent study, eating eggs may not only boost levels of vitamin D but also improve blood glucose levels.
So now that you can have eggs again, take full advantage of the long weekend and treat yourself with the following four recipes from Jerry James Stone of Cooking Stoned.
