simple devilled eggs in a very complicated world

There’s nothing easier than devilled eggs. If you want to spice up your traditional keto hard boiled egg, just stuff it. Plain hard boiled egg with mayo is insipid and boring. Stuffing makes it more appetizing and simply more tasty.

Chicken egg yolk is a natural source of vitamin D. Did you know that vitamin D is actually a hormone? Nearly every cell in your body has a receptor for this hormone, and it’s already confirmed, that it’s role in the body is much wider than just protecting your bones. Vitamin D is the key when comes to your immunity. It plays a crucial role in neurological health, mood and cognitive function, it reduces inflammation in the body, helps to regulate blood sugar and prevent insulin resistance. And that’s only some of the good things about Vitamin D.

Most of our vitamin D comes from sun exposure, but in modern world when we spend most of our time inside than outside, causes that we constantly have vitamin D deficient, what makes out immune system very weak. If you’d like to know some more about this subject I highly recommend watching Dr Berg’s videos – he explains everything straightforward.

Going back to our egg, egg yolk and some other foods are good source of this key vitamin. But. The same way people intake vitamin D from the sun the same does the chickens. If they are exposed to the sun (read – they live their lives outside, on the grass, not in giant chicken warehouses) their eggs contain vitamin D. So if you’d like to have some extra vitamin D from eggs, choose the ones that comes from the hens that were living outside in their natural environment.

Funny thing I have found online (I would like to say it’s rather paranoid), that “A team of nutritionists and agricultural scientists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has found a new way to further increase the vitamin D content of eggs: by exposing chickens to UV light. As the team writes in the scientific journal Poultry Science, the method can be put into practice in henhouses straight away.” – source I recommend to read all the article – it’s quite interesting.

What else we will invent to make our life more complicated and more far away from the nature? Wouldn’t it be easier just to let this chickens live outside, in the sun, air and grass? Why do we think that we know things better than nature, and we want to make everything “better” than the nature did?

That was quite complicated introduction to the very easy recipe 🙂
