One of the reasons for my various long hiatuses (hiati?), besides my stressful day job, is that I have gotten sick twice in the last two months. First, I returned from Brazil with a stomach bug; then, I found myself with a terrible flu during my Yule holiday. Well, I admit, I did resort to some Advil to bring my fever down while I had the flu, but I also made sure to eat plenty of nourishing foods.
So I joined The Nourishing Gourmet’s Sugar-Free Challenge. And Kimi put up a link to my blog with my name on the list, so I figured it would be a good idea to blog about it a little. Yeah… sugar. I like sugar. I actually consider myself to have a rather large sweet tooth, though I don’t indulge it as often as I’d like. But, I have decided that over-indulgence in sweets is the reason I put on a little weight in 2010, so I’ve decided to cut back.
So many places I turn I see people eating egg whites, supposedly in the name of health. My younger sister used to even buy the expensive Omega-3 eggs, and then throw out the yolks because she didn’t like them. So I just wanted to post a rant and try to convince people to eat those yolks. No, I’m not going to cite studies, although they do exist, that say that the dietary cholesterol in eggs is not a risk factor for heart disease. Nor is the saturated fat. Nor am I even going to cite information that says that egg whites prevent the absorption of biotin.
