Eggs in Diet

Written by Diet Bites

 


Eggs are one of the most fascinating foods on earth.

I was always hypnotized as a child whenever a Tarzan and Jane movie were on television. I was so impressed with Jane when she'd whip up those giant ostrich eggs. I never knew that ostriches lived in the jungle, just like lions...

As an animal lover, my better half and I wish that all the eggs at the market were produced from free roaming hens.

If you get  a choice in the matter, the free roaming, cage free hen eggs are much tastier because they come from happy chickens who aren't stressed.  

Of course, that's a matter of opinion...

One thing that you won't find at your local market are cartons of ostrich eggs. Too bad, because all the carbohydrate restricted dieters would be in Egg Heaven.

A few egg options at your market include the brown eggs, which cost a tab more than the white eggs. Brown eggs have a richer taste and the yolk tends to be a bit darker than the yolk found in white eggs.  Both brown eggs and white eggs contain about the same number of calories:  

Calories in Eggs

Based on 1 large egg.

Egg White, 17 Calories
Egg Yolk, 59 Calories
Fried Egg, 92 Calories
Hard Boiled, 76 Calories
Poached 76 Calories
Scrambled, 100 Calories

Cholesterol Concerns

If you are watching cholesterol, check out the egg substitutes found in the dairy case which contain about 25 calories per serving.

These are wonderful for whipping up quiches in a hurry.

My husband and I generally take one carton of egg substitute, add a cup of white skim grated cheese, a few sliced  mushrooms, about 1/2 cup of skim, a dash of salt and pepper, then we pour the mixture into a pie shell and bake at 350 degrees until done.

Fascinating Egg Facts

The coo-coo bird isn't as coo-coo as some might believe. It lays its eggs in a nest where another mother bird has already laid her eggs.  

The coo-coo then flies away to freedom, letting the owner of the nest do all the child-rearing work for her.  Talk about slackers.
