Ruby wanted to make sure you all knew about this new finding:
New USDA study shows eggs have 14% less cholesterol and more vitamin D.
This was all over the news yesterday and she just wanted to be sure you all got this message.
Seriously, I’m not a doctor or a nutrition expert, and I didn’t even stay at a Holiday Inn last night . . but my grandparents and great grandparents and all the old, long deceased aunts and uncles who lived into their 80’s and 90’s without all the benefit of the medical advances we have now . . every day of their lives, they all ate eggs and bacon and real butter and pork and meat with every meal, and they drank whole milk straight from the cow. All the fresh veggies were seasoned with bacon grease. My grandma always had a cake or a pie. I think the key was that they stayed very active! I’m pretty sure they also ate smaller portions than we do these days too. I think just because food was kinda scarce for them, they didn’t pile the food high on their plates and they didn’t go back for seconds. They worked in the fields, they never sat. They got up early and went to bed early and slept like a rock because they were exhausted by bed time.
Another thing I’ve noticed is that so many of the things they tell us are not good for us turn out to be not so bad and vice versa. Just remember . . eggs aren’t nearly as bad as we have been told previously.
