1. What Brassica vegetables are:

These vegetables rank among the top 10 healthiest and give you the most folate which is a B vitamin which is naturally present in these vegetables and an important vitamin for pregnant woman. However a study of 1391 women released in May 2016 revealed that excessive amounts of folate may increase the risk for autism.
So the old saying “Everything in moderation” is very relevant with this vitamin.

Not the original chocolate variety, they have a choice of strawberry, cheese Cake, green tea, sweet potato , red bean sandwich and sake and there is more:- 300 flavors in fact.

Eggs do Not Cause a Heart Attack! – But Sugar Does

 

unknown

More than 70 percent of Americans consume 10 percent of their daily calories from sugar. And about 10 percent of Americans consume one in every four of their calories from sugar.
We’ve been told to swap eggs for cereal. But that recommendation is dead wrong. In fact, it’s very likely that this bad advice has killed millions of Americans.

Eggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.” They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.
A study showed that your risk of heart attacks doubles if sugar makes up 20 percent of your calories.
So eat up your eggs!
In one study showed, 2 eggs per day for 6 weeks increased HDL levels (Good cholesterol) by 10%

Here are 10 reasons you should be eating eggs every day.

1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious
2. Eggs Are High in Cholesterol, But They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol
3. Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol
4. Eggs Contain Choline – an Important Nutrient That Most People Don’t Get Enough of
5. Eggs Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease
6. Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health
7. In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well
8. Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios
9. Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke
10. Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight

Bottom Line: Egg consumption consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.

How To Make The Best Omelette

images

Be fussy with the eggs you buy.

Eggs lose flavor the longer they sit in the fridge, so get the freshest eggs around.Cage free eggs or free range or even better straight from a farmer who has his poultry grass fed and even better than that your own chooks.
Whisk three eggs vigorously with a little salt and pepper in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth—evenly incorporating the whites and the yolks at this stage helps ensure a smooth, custardy omelet.

Heat the skillet.

Heat a pat of butter over medium in a small nonstick skillet until it bubbles gently. Non stick pan is the best to use. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet and immediately start scrambling them with a rubber spatula.

Don’t Over Scramble

Don’t scramble too long. As soon as the eggs form small loose curds and the mixture is thickened, stop scrambling and shake the skillet a bit so the eggs form an even, solid layer, making sure they extend to the edge of the pan. As the eggs start to set up, sprinkle whatever fillings you desire down the middle—a classic French omelet with fines herbes involves finely chopped parsley, chives, chervil, and tarragon, but any soft herbs, in any combination, will be delicious. A little crumbled soft goat cheese makes a lovely addition, too.

Perfect the tilt and roll.

Tilt the pan away from you over the burner, and starting with the edge closest to you, start to gently roll the omelet onto itself and away from you, at roughly 1-inch intervals, with your rubber spatula. Don’t worry if the eggs are still a little runny at this stage—they’ll continue to set as you roll, and undercooked now just means they won’t be overcooked later.

Keep rolling.

Keep nudging the omelet away from you until it’s formed a roll at the base of the tilted pan. Immediately remove from the heat.

Flip and finish

Complete your roll by tipping the omelet out of the pan and onto a plate. Tipping this way means the omelet sits seam-side down on the plate; in other words, it looks perfect. Sprinkle with more finely chopped fresh herbs and finish with a little bit of sea salt and, if you like, freshly ground black pepper.
