Did you know that HOW you cook your eggs can impact your health?
The cholesterol in an egg yolk is actually very unstable and quickly degrades when it is exposed to oxygen and air. Eating cholesterol from foods that have been exposed to high heat or long bouts of oxygen are less healthy for you than from foods where the cholesterol has been protected during the cooking process. For this reason, it is better to poach or boil your eggs, opposed to scrambling them. Fried eggs probably fall somewhere in between in terms of health risk — and if you do fry them please do so in expressed coconut oil or high quality butter.
