Probably one of nature’s most perfect foods! Healthy fat and protein with wonderful fat soluble vitamins. I love this image because the yolks are that bright orange color that signals a nutrient-dense egg probably from pastured poultry. Look for this bright color when you shop for eggs in your local market.
Egg yolks are one of the foods recommended early in the GAPS™ Introduction diet. The white portion of the egg (clear before cooking) is not consumed since it may contain proteins that are allergenic to certain people. The egg is rich in fat and very digestible and easily tolerated. Eating the yolks raw is recommended so that the fats are not altered or damaged by cooking. Because of this recommendation, it is vital to source eggs from a healthy chicken, duck or goose flock so safety is assured.
