Japanese-Style Minced Pork and Egg in a Bowl
Verona TAM, registered dietitian (UAS) and Continuing Education Sub-Committee of Hong Kong Nutrition Association said, "Many people may have a myth on high content of cholesterol in egg, which is unhealthy to heart. However, the fat content in egg is mainly unsaturated fatty acid which is good for heart health. Only when the diet does not contain other foods high in cholesterol, it is fine to have one egg on that day.. Seaweed is a good source of iodine, an essential nutrient for the production of thyroid hormones which are responsible for normal growth and development."
