If you’re tired of the reign of the egg-white, double down on your appreciation for the egg yolk with these extra-endowed eggs

Double-yolk eggs are available by the dozen at Gourmanoff in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.

Gourmanoff, a new high-end grocery store in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn is now carrying cartons of double-yolk eggs from Sauder’s, an egg wholesaler based in Pennsylvania, reports Grub Street.

Though Sauder’s has long offered double-yolk cartons in its inventory, Gourmanoff and other grocers have only recently expressed interest.

It might surprise you to find out double-yolks are not that rare — approximately one in 1,000 eggs — and are packaged together on purpose, so the discovery of a double-dozen does not represent an incredible statistical anomaly. A quality control representative for Sauders also told Grub Street that double-yolks are more likely to come from the first chickens to be put into a chicken house.

However, if you were wondering, various folkloric traditions connect double-yolk eggs with a future pregnancy, twins, and the impending death of a family member.

I have some good news. Chocolate is good for you. I have even better news. Chocolate is really really good for you and should really be an essential part of your diet, particularly because it is very high in magnesium.

Last night in Brighton I heard a nutritionist deliver a really interesting talk on the subject. She said that the one thing she wasn’t able to give up when she adopted a healthier diet was chocolate. Coffee, no problem. Sugar, no problem. Chocolate, no way. I think most of us can relate to that.

She also said she knew that it wasn’t the chocolate itself that was a no no, but the stuff that was added to it – namely dairy and sugar. So she started experimenting with raw chocolate – known as cacao – and substituting sweeteners like xylitol, honey and agave syrup for the sugar. Her recipes were so good that her friends said “you should sell this.” So she started up a chocolate making business called Lucy’s Luscious Raw Chocolate – her products are all handmade with no sugar, salt, gluten or dairy. I sampled her “peppermint crunch” chocolates last night and they were absolutely delicious.

Lucy now supplies Infinity Foods, one of Brighton’s top organic foodie shops, situated in the heart of Brighton amid the bustling North Laine area of the city. There is also an Infinity Cafe, which came first in “Best Food Shop” category in the Brighton & Hove Foodie Awards 2010.

Lucy said there may be a reason why people crave chocolate. Because of intensive farming techniques and the soil being depleted of essential minerals, many of us are actually lacking in magnesium. Women in particular suffer from this problem, although Lucy didn’t say why. Anyhow, it gives us girls a good excuse to reach for the chocolate!

Lucy said that raw chocolate is actually a Superfood and one of the richest sources of antioxidants on the planet. However, most of those are destroyed during the toasting process that’s used to make the chocolate you buy on the supermarket shelves. So it’s raw chocolate you should be eating really.

Raw chocolate also has polyphenols, which are good for your heart, and minerals, particularly iron, zinc and magnesium. Eating chocolate can also help stimulate the production of opioids by the brain – these are chemicals responsible for diminishing pain sensations, enhancing pleasurable ones and creating a sense of overall well-being. This is probably why chocolate has long had a reputation as an aphrodisiac – Lucy said that a friend of her daughter’s said “your chocolate always makes me so horny!”

Lucy also runs raw chocolate making workshops in Brighton – sign me up right away! She doesn’t have a website, but her email address is [email protected] and her phone number is 01273 232 862.

* Lucy was speaking last night at Sugargroup, a fabulous all-women business networking group founded by Geraldine Brooks, that emphasises mixing business with pleasure. No draughty church halls or boring hotel conference rooms, no elevator pitches, no breakfast meetings at sparrow’s fart, no hard selling pressure. Sugargroup events are relaxed and informal, always held at interesting locations and featuring guest speakers. It’s definitely the best women’s business networking group I’ve come across so far.
