9/23/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal - Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 24. September 2012 07:00

I saw an interesting article in Oxygen magazine about fortified eggs vs. regular eggs. It discussed how they can fortify eggs with DHA, EPA and ALA  DHA and EPA are omega-3 fats that are beneficial for brain and nervous system health.  ALA is a good anti-inflammatory.  You can get the omega-3's in some different kinds of fish.  If you don't eat enough of those fish, but really like eggs, then its worth the increase in cost to buy the fortified eggs.

It does beg the argument about the myriad of 'fortified' foods that are now available that were not available just 10 years ago.  The advice that I have received from nutritionist and dietitians is that you need to do your homework.  Don't just look at the claims on the front of the box.  Read the nutrition label.  Evaluate your personal diet for the quantity of nutrition that pertains to your gender, your body type, your activity level and your age.  There is no definitive answer.  It's different for every person.  Investigsat...evaluate, ask for help if it's available...make good choices!
