I love my breakfast, it is a must after my morning workouts. I've been having morning shakes with protein, oats, almonds/ walnuts, a banana, cashew milk & raw eggs (makes an awesome batter for pancakes too) I love my eggs! Does anyone know if I shld be buying organic eggs if I'm drinking them raw?
Ah, the Rocky myth :-)
First of all: yes, if you want to, you should by the organic ones. This is not just a trend, it's about laying hens having a greater probability of being contaminated with whatever bad you can imagine. Be it pathogens or antibiotics, you do the choice.
Secondly: no, you shouldn't drink them raw. Because there's no gain in having the raw product instead of the cooked version. The body doesn't utilise it better. Because there's a substance called Avidin, likeable to cause digestion problems. Because this substance binds the vitamin biotin which is important in metabolising fats, proteins and carbs. And yes, last but not least, there's the salmonella thing. This digestion booster is in the eggshell and destroyed by cooking (and so is the Avidin). If you have really fresh eggs and keep the inner away from the shell and use the organic version, the risk is low - I still wouldn't do it.
