I don't even know if I'm putting this in the right section.. if not, please tell me and I'll move it. My father recently had a stroke. Years of not following doctor's orders, not taking care of himself, being over indulgent, and no exercise finally caught up with him. Heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity... it's all contributed to his current condition. He LOVES my fresh eggs... and I love to share with him. But now he's on a strict diet and I'm afraid his doctor will suggest he lay off the eggs. Not that he eats an unreal amount as it was, but still, I just don't know that real eggs will be on his new menu. He's been in a rehabilitation facility, learning to swallow and walk again, basic control of his limbs, coordination, balance. Gradually as his swallowing has improved, he's been able to actually eat and not be fed through the peg tube inserted while he was in the hospital. One of the breakfast items he's been allowed is what I call eggs from a jug. They're lower fat, lower cholesterol. Pop doesn't really care for them. So, here's my (probably stupid) question. Is there a way to produce lower cholesterol, fresh, real eggs? I saw somewhere that someone said adding flax seed to the hen's diet will help produce lower cholesterol eggs?
