iVillage: 10 Healthy Eating Myths That Could Be Ruining Your Diet

2 of 11

Myth: Brown Eggs Are Healthier

Truth: When it comes to eggs, the color on the outside has nothing to do with the nutrition on the inside. The nutrients found in brown and white eggs are essentially the same, however, brown eggs often cost more. “Regular brown eggs are not worth the higher price tag,” says registered dietitian Victoria Shanta Retelny, author of "The Essential Guide to Healthy Healing Foods". Retelny says if you’re looking to boost the nutrient content of your eggs, choose brands whose packages say they’re rich in omega-3 fats (the hens' feed is rich in these essential fatty acids); they cost a bit more as well, but in this case, you’re actually getting what you’re paying for.
