Heart-healthy eggs

Health & Nutrition - - NUTRITION UPDATE -

How you pre­pare an egg does not al­ter its in­trin­sic nu­tri­tional value, but it can de­ter­mine whether the out­come is heart-healthy or a di­etary hor­ror. Fry­ing an egg in but­ter or adding a rich sauce, such as hol­landaise, for ex­am­ple, will cause its choles­terol con­tent to sky­rocket. Try th­ese health­ier ideas in­stead:  Mi­crowave mixed veg­eta­bles, drain the liq­uid, add the veg­eta­bles to a lightly greased non­stick pan and add egg whites. Cook slowly.  Pour egg whites into a bowl, add veggies and a few chopped up pieces of ham or salami. Fill non­stick muf­fin tins with the mix­ture, and bake un­til the eggs are no longer runny. You’ll get per­fect por­tions that can be mi­crowaved for break­fast.  Top a poached egg with salsa.  Add a hard-boiled egg to your salad or veg­e­tar­ian sand­wich.  Fried eggs aren’t off lim­its. Just skip the but­ter.
