This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Turkey Eggs !! It does a body GOOD !!

I've been purchasing chicken eggs for years from a neighbor. The other day, he left a carton of eggs on our swing, with the word T-U-R-K-E-Y  written on it. I thought Turkey ? I've never heard of Turkey eggs... ewwww.  So I goggled the term.

Seems turkey eggs are quite popular and just as nutritious as chicken eggs,  but loaded with cholesterol !  Nutritional Facts for Turkey Eggs  I guess they should come with a warning. Who knew ?  A turkey egg contains over three times the amount of cholesterol found in a chicken egg. With 737 mg per egg, eating just one turkey egg puts you over the American Heart Association's recommended limit of 300 mg per day. Everything in moderation !!

This morning was the first time I actually tried them.  The yolk was a bit thicker. The white a bit thinner.  The flavor a bit stronger.  It was pretty good. My game was on. I'm always willing to try things once. :) So if you are ever in the mood for something different and have a challenging pallate like mine.. why not try turkey eggs ?
