For a long time, eggs were considered pure evil, and doctors were more likely to recommend tossing eggs at passing cars than into omelet pans. That's because just two eggs contain enough cholesterol to put you over your daily recommended value. Though you can cut out some of the cholesterol by removing part of the yolk and using the whites, more and more research shows eating an egg or two a day won't end up causing LDL cholesterol or triglyceride levels to rise after all. (Video: Turn eggs into a 60-second snack) In fact, a recent study found that people who ate one egg a day for 12 weeks saw their good cholesterol (HDL) levels rise by up to 48 percent. Rethink your position on eggs and consider taking advantage of this food's powerful makeup of protein.
