Poached Egg Yogurt with a Parsley Pesto with Vegetables

A multivitamin looks like this, colorful, edible, and delicious. Your meals should be packed with vitamin rich foods just like this one. The egg yolk provides you with health benefiting cholesterol.  Without cholesterol your hormone function will decrease. Hormones are transported in the body via cholesterol. Unfortunately the popularity of the low-fat diet has caused a rise in hormone imbalance in the population. Keeping your hormones in balance keeps you body in a state of homeostasis. By eating the right kinds of healthy fats you will boost the good cholesterol in your body, which will then turn your genes on to allow your body to properly release the right amount of hormones. This will control everything from cortisol (your stress hormone, which determines if you store or burn fat), leptin (your fat regulating hormone, released when sleeping), insulin (your hormone released to regulate blood sugar, determines if you store glucose efficiently or store it as fat), and sex hormones (your gender hormones which determine how healthy your sex organs are and necessary for all other hormones to be in balance).
