The Incredible Edible Egg

 I eat A LOT of eggs.  I often times get asked if I am worried about cholesterol content in eggs.  My answer is always "NO". I know that in years past eggs have gotten a bad rap due to their high dietary cholesterol.  Many people opted just for the whites and also for liquid egg substitutes.  High blood cholesterol is associated with heart disease, so blaming this on food high in dietary cholesterol seemed only natural.  But now after 25 years of study it is shown that saturated fat has a much bigger effect on blood cholesterol than does dietary cholesterol.  

With this news lets all eat some eggs again!  This little powerhouse has 75 calories -7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and zeaxanthin for eye health.

Here is a little breakdown of the words you will see on your egg carton and what they mean:

Grade- Eggs are given a gread by the U.S Agriculture Department.  There are 3 grades depending on the quality.  Grade AA- these are the highest quality with thick and firm whites and round clean yolks.  Grade A- these are close to AA but just not as firm whites.  Grade B- these are rarely sold in stores and are used for mostly egg products or commercial baked goods.

Cage-free or Free-range- This give you some information on how the hens who laid these eggs were treated.  Cage-free- The hens were not kept in cages and allowed to roam around in a barn to stretch their little legs.  Free-range- These hens were also not kept in cages and given the additional freedom to go outside.

Vegetarian-fed- These hens were fed no animal biproducts.

Organic- The carton must have the USDA Organic seal.  These eggs came from hens that were Free-range and fed organic food.

Pasteurized- Eggs that have been heated to a point to kill any Salmonella bacteria which makes them suitable for recipes that require raw eggs such as Caesar Salad Dressing and Eggnog.

Hormone-free or Antibiotic-free- These are claims that don't mean anything since hormones and antibiotics are not used in egg production.

Farm-fresh or All-natural- These are marketing terms that really have no relevance to the way hens are treated and fed or the way the eggs are produced. 

So don't just boil eggs for Easter; eat them as a snack, put them on your salad or make an egg salad sandwich!

Food Prep 101

Fail to prepare, then prepare to fail!

When it comes to eating clean a good habit to get into is taking one day to cook in bulk.  Having things cooked and chopped ahead of time helps make your daily meal prep a breeze!  

I usually reserve Sunday morning for this ritual.  The first thing I do is prepare a menu for the week, then write my grocery list and do the shopping.

Items always on my list are:

baby spinach

strawberries

bananas*

kale*

sweet potatoes

spaghetti squash*

onions*

tomatoes*

celery*

cucumbers*

mushrooms*

lemons

limes

avocado*

chicken breast*

ground turkey*

ground grass fed beef*

eggs

egg whites*

salmon*

oats*

brown rice*

quinoa*

almond milk

When I return back home with all my goodies I immediately start the preparation process: 

-hard boil the eggs

-wash and chop the veggies and fruit 

-marinate the chicken breast, grill it and chop it

-make salad dressings and salsas to top my salads

-roast the spaghetti squash

-brown the ground turkey

-make burgers

-cook the brown rice or quinoa 

I make sure I have plenty of food storage containers on hand.  

Doing all this ahead of time makes my mornings really quick and easy (especially since I make all my husband's meals too).  In the morning I can just assemble the meals and be on my merry way!!

*If you are in my Shape Up program there is a recipe included which will utilize this prepped food!!  If you would like to join Shape Up CLICK HERE.

EATING CLEAN WHILE DINING OUT

Eating clean doesn't mean every meal you eat has to be homemade, out of Tupperware and sitting in solitude like a weirdo.  Whether you are in the Shape Up program or just made the decision to create a healthier lifestyle, you can still enjoy a night out with friends and family.

Most restaurants these days are very accomodating to many different dietary restrictions.  Some even offer special menus for people with such needs.  But when restaurants create their everyday menus they do so with the typcial customer in mind.  Some of these dishes can be heavy in sauces and carbohydrates and lower in vegetables.  But that doesn't mean you can't order off this menu.  

When I go out for a meal there are a few key words I look for when choosing a dish: grilled, steamed, baked and poached.  These types of dishes generally are lighter and easier to make subsitutions in.  I also look for dishes that have lots of veggies and ones that don't have sauces -since this can drive up the calorie count.

Don't be afraid to ask your server specifics about the dish: "is it cooked with butter?" "is there cheese on top?" "is it breaded?".  You are, after all, the one eating it.  If the answer is "yes" to these questions then ask for these items to be omitted, substituted or put on the side so you can be the one to control the quantity that you ingest.

If you are in my Shape Up program and have an outing planned please feel free to email me at Meredith@meredithevangelisti.com.  These days most menus are online, so together we can pick some dishes that are suitable for you.  You can always refer back to the Healthy Habits Eating Guide as well to help guide you in your decision.

I ordered this mat a month ago. I was looking for something with a bit more cushion but not too much heft. This mat is perfect. I researched online for a few days, and let me save you the time, if you want a mat that feels great, offers a bit more cushion and has great grip look no further. I am vey impressed, and so are all the folk at my studio! Good work Kulae! - J. Fish
