When you start to change your eating choices and habits, eating out can be a point of confusion for many. We see this all the time with patients at the office—they want to stick to their food plan because they’re feeling great, but they also want to be able to enjoy eating out with others and not feel like they are sabotaging their hard efforts.

The yolk contains choline, which is essential for the functioning of all cells, especially brain cells. Egg yolks also contain antioxidants; B vitamins, including B12; vitamin A; iron; selenium; biotin; phosphorous, and other various trace nutrients. Egg whites, alone, lack many of the nutrients that are found in the yolk, a nutrition powerhouse.
