Eggs and Chick

Must one worry about eggs being a culprit for increased LDL?  Lots of research* says not.  Besides, as we’ve discussed, it’s not the cholesterol that causes heart disease, but rather inflammation.  What could make a difference, however, is what we eat in combination with our eggs.

If the side dish includes bread, butter and jam, which is yummy for the moments we’re eating them, then problems can follow.  Wheat and/or sugar in combination with the egg protein makes the system acidic and can result in inflammation of the arteries.  You can also see the result  as reflux, a common woe.

How to Alkalize Your Breakfast Eggs and Eliminate Cholesterol and Inflammation Worries

Alkalize your egg breakfast by eating them in combination with one of the following suggestions:

  1. Left over roasted spuds from dinner the night before.
  2. Grits.
  3. Frijoles – one of my favorites – half a can per serving should be plenty.
  4. Make an omelet with spinach, onions, mushrooms or any veggie(s) you prefer with a little feta or other goat cheese.

These combinations are easier to digest, are more alkaline, and will leave you with plenty of energy for the day, since the digestive process is not so heavily burdened with the egg/bread/sugar combination.

Let us know what you think after you’ve tried the difference – we’d love to hear about more egg/veggie combinations you have created.

On days there is not much choice, or you’ve decided to indulge an egg/bread/sugar combination, accept a little help from your herbal friends, the Gentian Root or the Patic Fe formula.  They are both gentle “roto-rooters” that will plumb your system of the offenders and restore energy.

P.S. – When at all possible, buy them organic, as happy, healthy and chemical-free chickens produce much tastier eggs.

Best of Health to you as always,
