Happy National Egg Day! Yes, there’s actually a day for that.
Over the past years, eggs have gotten a bad rap with regards to health and healthy eating.
I’m sure you’ve heard the debate, but does eating too many eggs actually affect your cholesterol levels and heart health?
How many eggs CAN I eat?
According to the Mayo Clinic, most healthy people can eat up to seven eggs a week without increasing their risk of heart disease. What they indicate is that the cholesterol risks are raised not so much from the egg itself, but from the foods that normally accompany the eggs in a Standard American Diet – foods that contain trans fats, saturated fats and sodium such as bacon, sausages and ham.
