The humble egg is a nutritional powerhouse. Long mistakenly feared for its high cholesterol, the golden yolk actually contains all the valuable vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and health-boosting carotenoids, not the “healthy” egg whites. Gram for gram, eggs also have the highest biological value of protein, making them the ‘golden standard’ of protein quality. They also contain carotenoids that help protect your eye health and brain-enhancing choline.
To maximize the full potential of your pasture-raised eggs, it’s best to choose soft-boiled and poached eggs with a slightly runny yolk, because heat destroys delicate nutrients such as lutein and brain-enhancing choline.

A multifunctional habit is a helpful behaviour that serves more than one purpose. In other words, you get multiple health benefits from performing one single routine.
For example, by doing your groceries on foot, you combine a necessary chore with a brisk walk, fresh air and hopefully some sunshine. Plus, you can’t thoughtlessly throw ‘great discount offers’ of not-so-healthy food items in your shopping cart, because you’ll have to be able to carry everything home eventually.
So which multifunctional habits could help you lead a healthier lifestyle in an effortless way?
