Like this recipe…but would change just slightly!…a few Health tweeks! Try Whole Wheat muffins…substitute Sea Salt or Himalayan! I do not like that Sodium in the salt! The Lox great…hopefully wild origins!…fish great choice…and easy fit for Protein Counting! Butter Best from Organic Origins…it’s possible! Canadians often luckier up to now!! Butter full saturated fat…great for cooking… as does not change chemically…and here consumption not in great quantity…a tolerable treat! The avocado…the perfect fat!! Eat it in quantity! In the supermarket…eggs invariably sitting in the same fridge as milk! But eggs are NOT Dairy! Dairy includes foods from mammals…example: cows and goats… and products such as cheese, cream, butter and yogurt. Eggs come from birds, NON mammal, do not produce milk! Eggs NOT Dairy Product!
Birds lay eggs. From a paleolithic point of view, our ancestors, one can imagine, would from time to time gladly snag eggs. Eggs NOT Dairy Product?
Today we have hens, ducks, and quail, whose eggs we traditionally eat. BUT we are mainly subject to CAFOs in the massive the production of chicken eggs…but without getting sidetracked, let’s imagine our ancestors freedom of the horrors of superbugs, growth hormones, and toxins, antibiotics…the list is long!…of these Confined Animal Feeding Operations or CAFOs, that include chickens and egg laying! The reason I discuss this, is that I believe our ancestral DNA farther back than 2 million years, and based in Africa, would have had some ‘mix’. This is important, because although we were primarily fruit eaters…then secondarily plant…opportunistically, way back, our DNA…over those millions of years of forbears…and talking ‘way back’…managed SOME animal products, albeit mainly bird eggs!
Eggs would have been a delicacy because they are one of the most nutritious foods one can eat, they are low in calories but contain high amounts of protein, fat, and nutrients. One large egg, about 80 calories, with 6 grams protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1 gram of carbohydrate. Source of Selenium, Riboflavin, and Vitamin B 12. It is not a blind comment to add that eggs contain almost every vitamin and mineral the body needs..for instance it is a rare source of Vitamin D. This vitamin, our ‘new society’, because of indoor fixation, chronically short! BUT nevertheless Eggs Not Dairy Product!
