Hello! Ben and I made a detour to Taco Bell last night on the way home from the airport. I really should have abstained but my willpower was already asleep (like the rest of me should have been)!
Part of my Fitbloggin swag was this pair of New Balance capris – love them! See Vegas in the background?
Since January I have been trying to eat more protein and my #1 pick is eggs. I realize eggs have more to offer than just protein, so I thought I could share the benefits of Eggland’s Omega-3 packed eggs.
A few Omega 3 facts (according to the American Heart Association and EB):
Helps support healthy blood pressure
decrease risk of arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats)
maintains the fluidity of cell membranes
As a runner, the most relevant benefit for me is that Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation. I’ll take eating eggs over taking an inflammatory pain pill any day! Plus this Runner’s World article says Omega-3 might reduce exercise induced asthma.
Right now I take a multivitamin when I remember, but am not a big fan of supplements (and hate the burpy aftermath of certain pills too) so getting extra health benefits through fortified foods seems like a good deal to me.
Question: If you have to choose between ketchup OR hot sauce for the rest of your life which would you go with?
I use both on my eggs every time I eat them. This would be tragic, but I might pick hot sauce if I got to use multiple kinds.
