Go eat your egg, don’t be chicken

Go eat your egg, don’t be chicken

Since 2004 I have stated that you can easily eat fifteen eggs per week. This is a simple and cost-effective way to add valuable nutrition to your diet, especially high-quality protein, healthy fats and antioxidants — provided you cook them properly that is half or quarter boiled where the yolk is still soft. Meanwhile, not all eggs are the same quality, free roaming chicken is the best. You should be healthier with high quality eggs.

It is not overstatement to say that the best natural food on the planet is eggs. But many of the healthiest foods happen to be rich in cholesterol (and saturated fats), and this isn’t a bad thing. Anything that processed and packed for selling cannot be a good food.

Many people, unfortunately, have been scared away from this healthy food source because they contain cholesterol. Yes, it contains cholesterol but it increase HDL-cholesterol so called “good” cholesterol.

Taking eggs as much as 20 a week do not increase blood cholesterol level and do not increase insulin release. It is a healthy choice of food.

What’s the Difference between Table Salt, Sea Salt and Himalayan Salt?

Sometimes people assume that sea salt is the same thing as Himalayan salt. While they both are table salt alternatives, there’s a big difference between the two.

Although Himalayan salt may have started out as a sea salt, its similarity to sea salt ends there. While Himalayan salt comes from ancient sea salt beds found at high elevations, sea salt is produced through the evaporation of water from either the ocean or from saltwater lakes.

Benefit of Apple Cider Vinegar or Nipah Vinegar

Vinegar is said to have been discovered around 5000 BC, when unattended grape juice turned into wine and then vinegar. Vinegar’s medicinal uses soon came to light.

Hippocrates used vinegar to manage wounds, vinegar was even used to treat diabetes.

Vinegar can be made from virtually any carbohydrate that can be fermented, including grapes, dates, coconut, potatoes, beets, juice of nipah and, of course, apples. The best of all is perhaps nipah vinegar(from personal experience). However it is not widely available except in east coast (Kelantan, Terengganu) and north (Kedah) of peninsular Malaysia.
