Eggs are packed with nutrition and are the easiest morning protein. Morning protein is essential for keeping your energy up and hunger at bay. Eggs are also rich in many different vitamins and minerals as well as essential fats all helping to supporting shiny hair, strong nails & glowing skin. Eggs also help brain function, boost weight loss and can reduce inflammation especially when they are pasture raised or organic with high amounts of Omega-3. Eggs are a good source of iodine, vitamin D and zinc. Not only this, they are good value and have a multitude of uses when cooking.
Think of all those different savoury sauce you may already have in your fridge, for example, basil pesto, spinach pesto, guacamole, salsa, tapenade, Mexican Mole’. Having eggs any style, boiled, fried, poached, scrambled with a little sauce on the side is a fresh change to just plain boiled eggs. There is no limit to the everyday ways that you can cook an egg! It’s all about using your imagination.
Some Fun Suggestions:
- Sprinkle the pan with a drop of Ghee and Baby Spinach. Crack the eggs over the Spinach, season and cook about 3 mins.
- Eggs with a side of sauted mushrooms or onions or spinach or tomato add a little colour, fiber and increased nutrition to your eggs.
- And fresh herbs are the perfect bit of magic that instantly, with no fuss turn average looking eggs into a gourmet feast. Some of my favourites are thyme, chives, basil, tarragon, coriander and parsley all go well with eggs.
- Add some vege from the night before like sweet potato on the side.
- And if you like your eggs super simple, a pinch of Celtic salt or Pink Himalayan salt and a grind of black pepper is the perfect marriage.
