The Truth About Eggs

In a nutshell, Eggs don't deserve the bad wrap they get. The bad part of the Egg is the yolk, but if you eat 2 eggs (or less) a day in conjunction with a low-fat diet you're fine and enjoy the many benefits of eggs. For me, I just hard boil mine, and don't eat the yolk. I found a great article about Eggs at Men's Health.

Egg Cookers

I watched an Eggies commercial and got sucked into finding a way to microwave eggs and not have to deal with the Shells. In the end I'm not sure this exists. In doing some research, the eggies system is made for really small eggs. We don't have really small eggs, and you still have to wait for the water to boil.

Currently I use an EggGenie. Which works well. It's a great “hands off” way to cook eggs. In looking at Amazon.com they had some other options there is a Microwave Egg cooker which sounds like it works fine once you get the time right. Just be careful with the unit as its very hot when you take it out.

  1. I respectfully disagree with you about not eating the egg yolks. In your podcast you listed all the great nutrients found in eggs, including vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin K – all fat soluble vitamins found ONLY in the yolk! Also, the yolk contains 99% of the zinc, 90% of the calcium and 95% of the folate. You’re better off eating the whole egg, and if you’re concerned about total fat (you shouldn’t be…but that’s a whole ‘nother argument) just eat less of something else later in the day.
