Ever since the anti-fat hysteria of the 1980s, doctors have been advising people to avoid eggs.
“They’re high in cholesterol,” they say, “so they’re bad for your heart.”
Of course, anyone with even basic understanding of cholesterol knows that dietary cholesterol has almost no effect on cholesterol levels. The liver produces most of the cholesterol in the body, and diet has very little to do with it.
Those with an even more advanced understanding of cholesterol will also tell you that cholesterol levels are insignificant when it comes to heart health.
That’s why I have never scared you away from eggs. But rather encourage them as part of a healthy diet.
So, today, I want to share one of my favorite recipes—in case you’re looking to scramble things up this weekend…
Chicken breakfast skillet
This recipe serves one.
Ingredients include: 1 teaspoon (tsp) macadamia nut oil, 1 chicken sausage link (diced), 1/2 cup diced shiitake mushrooms, 1/3 cup diced orange bell pepper, 1/2 cup diced cipollini onion, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 3 large eggs, and coarse sea salt/freshly ground black pepper (to taste).
Start by preheating your over to 400°F.
Then, heat the oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the sausage and sauté until the fat from the sausage is rendered, about 10 minutes. Then add the mushrooms, orange bell pepper, onion, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne, and stir to combine.
Make three wells in the mixture, crack an egg into each one, and season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for five to 10 minutes, depending on how you like your yolk. Enjoy!
Nutrient-dense and delicious
This recipe is an excellent way to get more protein, healthy fats, veggies, and health-boosting spices into your diet.
Better yet, it can help you ward off malnutrition—because it fills your plate with nutrient-dense, whole foods.
Now, you may never think that malnutrition is a condition that can affect you. But the truth is, roughly 7.3 million older American adults suffer from it.
The signs can be subtle—and may even occur in people who appear outwardly fit and healthy.
