Egg Yolk: contains 100% of the entire egg’s vitamins K, D, E, and A content as well as more than 90 percent of the thiamin, calcium, iron, zinc, folate, and vitamins B6 and B12. Although it does contain cholesterol, egg yolks do not cause heart disease. Research has shown that when people consume some 3-4 eggs per day (with the yolk), cholesterol levels do not increase and,  if they change at all, they usually improve! The egg yolk also contains the long-chain omega-3 fatty acid DHA, which is necessary for brain and eye function, as well as the long-chain omega-6 fatty acid,arachidonic acid, which is necessary for healthy skin, hair, libido, reproduction, growth and response to injury.

Avocadoes: prevent breast cancer with its oleic acid content, inhibit the growth of prostate cancer, defend against oral cancer, contain lutein for eye health, lower cholesterol levels due to its beta-sitosterol, contain 23% of the recommended daily value of folate (lowers incidence of heart disease), protect against strokes, helps to better absorb nutrients, are high in glutathione, which prevent aging, cancer and heart disease, and are packed with vitamin E.
