We’ve got to shake the notion that fat free is the way to go… I can’t tell you how many egg white omelets I’ve eaten in my life, depriving myself of tons of nutrients.  This reblog is dedicated to dreaamlive who asked me if she should be eating yolks - this is one of the best answers I could find.  #crossfitcandy

Egg yolks are good! 
Nutrients in a yolk: Egg yolks are jam packed with fat soluble nutrients these include: Vitamins A, D, E, K and carotenoids. These help you boost your immune system, keep your bones, teeth, and skin healthy, reduce the effects of diabetes, and help you reduce the risk of cancer. 
Also: Yolks have loads of Zinc, Calcium, Folate and vitamin B12. All of which are super important for you. 
But, but, but eggs are full of cholesterol! Cholesterol is needed in the body as it is the building block of hormones, also cholesterol helps repair damaged cells in the body. Cholesterol that comes from processed, super fatty food is bad for you, so don’t go out and eat tons of fried food. When it comes from this incredible egg it is not! 
Additionally: Eating only egg whites can cause a biotin deficiency, biotin is the vitamin that gives us strong nails and beautiful hair! 
In conclusion: EAT THE WHOLE EGG. It is only 70 calories for one XL egg. It is amazing for you. Tastes great. Now I am not saying go make yourself 20 eggs to make up for your lack of yolky days, but do not be afraid to incorporate into your diet.
