The Art of Perfectly Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs seem pretty basic, right? You whisk some eggs, add them to a buttered pan, and breakfast is ready. Oh, if only it were this simple! For someone like me who grew up around eggs, I’ve heard everything you can imagine about the do’s and don’ts of scrambling eggs perfectly – and there’s a lot to unpackage here. Runny or firm? In a pot or pan? Do you add milk? What about salt? Maybe ketchup?
An Important Update on Eggs and Type 2 Diabetes
While studies show that seven eggs a week are part of a healthy diet, there has been some question as to whether this is also true for people with type 2 diabetes. Past studies have shown that people with (or at risk of) type 2 diabetes may need to limit their intake of eggs to less than seven per week, due to observational evidence of an association between higher egg intake and an increased risk of heart disease.
Uncovering the Cognitive Benefits of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Choline
In past blog posts, I’ve highlighted the importance of nutrients such as choline, lutein and zeaxanthin.

The Role of Egg Consumption in Women at Different Life Stages
Brunch with my sisters and girlfriends always includes some fabulous egg dish – maybe a quiche or an airy soufflé. And, of course, over the years our gatherings have always included girl talk – from the days when we were pregnant with our first babies through to the ups and downs of menopause – we’ve covered it all over a fun meal or a cup of coffee.
The Vital Importance of Vitamin D
Vitamin D has been in the news a lot lately since some preliminary studies have shown a correlation between vitamin D status and COVID-19 severity. Some studies, but not all, show that people with low vitamin D levels fare worse with the coronavirus.
Topic: foods for immune health
With Covid-19 in the news, you’ve probably seen lots of information about getting the right nutrients to support immune health. As outlined in this post, the immune system plays a very important role in your overall health – it defends against viruses and bacteria. Certain nutrients, such as protein, omega-3 fat, zinc, selenium, and vitamins A, C, D and E are critical for normal immune function. But which foods contain these important nutrients? What should you be adding to your grocery cart…and your dinner plate? That’s what we’ll look at today.
The Importance of Protein for an Aging Population
Protein is a vital nutrient that’s important for all age groups because it’s required by every cell in the human body. Since protein needs tend to increase as we get older, researchers are now paying special attention to the protein needs of the people over age 65. This is especially true for older adults who may be dealing with acute or chronic illnesses which causes excessive wear and tear on the body. While dealing with an illness, aging bodies process protein less efficiently and need more of it to maintain bone health, muscle mass and strength.
