ummm..there have been massive shut downs of egg farms because of salmonella. Please don't give out false information unless you have studied proof. Thank-you.

watch the splenda, it is just as high on the glycemic index as sugar. use stevia instead.

i absolutely LOVE egg nog and eggs are sooooo great for you, esp. raw ones. but i have no idea why only the yolks. i make mine with both, and to make it fancy, i whip the whites separately and fold in.

and what's with the heating? yuk. heating destroys the benefits of raw eggs. the stuff about salmonella and egg fears is junk. egg farms are tested and should be disease free. if you buy local from clean farmers, disease from raw eggs should not present a problem. they are a living, breathing item (like breast milk) that is full of probacterias and micro and phyto nutrients that are easily destroyed with heating.

anyway, studies show people that eat eggs and dairy are healthier than those that don't and have fewer heart attacks, so eat away!

other than that eggnog is a great idea, even for a daily breakfast.

A great eggnog recipe just in time for the holidays! We get a nice amount of protein and low carbs. And of course, we know it is going to taste good by reading what is in it. Also, it does not look too hard to make.
