1. Egg Yolks
Aside from being the delicious part of the egg, consume the yolk because it is a rich source of vitamin A and B, selenium and choline. Egg yolks produced by pastured chicken contain greater amounts of carotenoids and vitamin D with antioxidants giving it the rich orange color. Dr. Laura Schoenfeld recommends eating at least 2 or 3 off these fat-rich eggs a day if you can tolerate it.
