are eggs good food?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Do you think eggs are okay to eat?

Answer: I get this question a lot.

The answer is, not really. Especially not conventional eggs.

If you’re going to buy ONE thing organic, let eggs be that one thing. The natural omega fatty acid balance is so disrupted in conventional eggs that it’s the reverse of what is healthy. It should be 6:1 Omega 3’s to Omega’s 6’s. But it’s the opposite in grocery-store eggs, and we’re already far out of balance because of refined oils heavy in Omega 6’s, in most people’s diet.

The only thing I use eggs in is baking, very occasionally. And you don’t have to use eggs. You can use 1 Tbsp. chia seed soaked in 3 Tbsp. water instead.
