Top 5 Forgotten Superfoods (Five)

20 Jul

The next “food” is last but not least. It is a food I mentioned before. Number five on my list is the egg. You can read my blog on June 19, 2009 “The Yolk is no Joke” to review the health benefits. But eggs have so much more to offer…

Use them as part of your weight loss strategy:

“Studies show if you eat eggs at breakfast, you may eat fewer calories during the day and lose weight without significantly affecting cholesterol levels,” says Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD.

Paint, decorate or hunt for them:
Who says you have to wait ‘til Easter? There are loads of animals to create and masterpieces to make, http://www.canadaegg.ca/bins/play_page.asp?cid=156-12-71&lang=1.

Add shine to your hair: Hair’s the recipe to wash your hair with eggs.
http://www.ayushveda.com/magazine/things-you-can-do-to-make-your-hair-shine/. “The first recipe you can use to make your dull looks shine requires that you raid your refrigerator until you find two medium eggs and a quarter glass of milk. After you have finished blending the eggs and milk together, you should pour the mixture over your hair. Use your fingertips to work the egg/milk mix into your scalp. Cover your head with a shower cap, or wrap your hair in a towel and allow it to soak in the protein from the eggs and the calcium from the milk for five to ten minutes. Shampoo and condition your hair just like you normally would.”

Toss them at your next picnic:
I said “toss” no throwing, hard boiled eggs work nicely, do not try sneaking uncooked eggs into the bag and make sure to avoid hitting any cars!

Use them as science experiments: Here are just a few, http://www.everythingesl.net/lessons/egg_experiments.php and then use the cartons for projects; I myself have made a caterpillar or two but you may want to read about The 5 things you can do with egg cartons, http://www2.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3747155.
