In Praise of the Egg

If you want to improve your brain function through nutrition, look no further than the egg.  Once thought of as dangerous as part of a daily diet, new studies show that eggs, particularly the standard "barnyard egg" that is created when a hen lives a normal farm life, are close to being the perfect food. What makes them so special?  Eggs are loaded with B vitamins; B6 is important for cognitive function, B12 helps protect against agitation and loss of focus and B9, or folate, wards off mental sluggishness and forgetfulness.  And, they come in their own neat package!  For more healthy reasons to eat eggs, visit 10 Health Benefits of Eggs. To add to your egg cooking knowledge: How to boil an egg and Healthy Egg Recipes.
