It is a funny coincidence that about a year ago there were a bunch of articles in the media which compared the health effects of eating eggs to those of smoking and I wrote a piece about it. Here we are twelve months later and I've been blown away by two great recent pieces covering the same subject:
- Forks Over Knives called on Dietitian Susan Levin to write a piece entitled "What is Wrong with Eggs?" It is not a pretty story, but definitely worth a read.
- Dr. Michael Greger of NutritionFacts.org spent a portion of his year-in-review video "More than An Apple a Day: Combating Common Diseases" discussing the problem of how to advertise eggs. It seems the FDA won't let the Egg Marketing Board call their product healthy, or even safe, due to the pesky facts. Fun stuff!
This week's recipe selection is a great example of how egg-free baking can be both nutritious and delicious. Special thanks to Christina for this recipe which answers the requests of some loyal readers looking for more desserts from us. She is responsible for all the baked goods in our household and any of her recipes will now be identified with her Secret Agent name "Seena" in the title. Hope you enjoy this and watching the videos.
