Eggcelent Choice

My health conscious pals, I am here to share one of my favorite little buddies-- mr. egg cooker. I like to call him Roo for short. Get it? ;) ha.

Let me tell you. I love eggs! I used to wonder how in the world people could like hard boiled eggs, and now, I'M OBSESSED!

When I was taking a dabble in the lacto-ovo pescatarian life, that just means basically no meat, I was eating lots and lots of eggs and fish. I saw some great things from trying this, and some not so great things. Needless to say, I don't like to spare my body from really anything or label myself as one particular thing. I just listen to my body, and make the most health conscious decision I can for how I feel at the moment.

So now that you know where I am in life with this lets get back to the real star chick. The eggs. They're incredibly nutritious. They are said to be the "cornerstone of healthy diet and contain vital nutrients like choline, selenium, and B12" by several doctors I've researched. I'll link the site down below. Did you know they're classified as a SUPERFOOD. Yup. No need to go to the Vitamin Shoppe for this one! I mean if you really think about it, they have enough nutrients in them to turn a baby cell into an actual chicken so…

I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite not so average- ways to cook eggs in case your looking for a few options to scramble your fancy. --see what I did there ;)

  1. Avocado Toast with eggs on top + chili flakes. I toast up some of my favorite Ezekiel Toast, mash up some avocado, then soft fry an egg in coconut oil. Put the egg on top-Slice that baby down the middle for some yolk porn. #drool. Or, if I have boiled eggs, I'll put those on top instead + salsa. Oh yea buddy!

  2. Mashed Sweet Potate+ Kale+ Eggs. Okay this combo is so full of flavor you'll be obsessed. I love the crunch from the sauteed kale, the sweetness from the sweet potato, then after you put the {soft} fried egg on top with some siracha sauce-- DONE.

  3. Lunch time! Spring Salad. This salad is actually in my video. It has a ton of different things, but so good! The mix of flavors and the added protein of the egg whites at the end kept me full til dinner. It was great!

I have lots more so let me know if you're interested. I know this is sort of random, but what can I say, I love to cook up random things!

Here are some eggstrodinary details as to why eggs are so nutritious:

With 77 calories, 6 grams of protein, and 5 grams of healthy fats, a single large boiled egg contains:

  • Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA

  • Folate: 5% of the RDA

  • Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA

  • Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA

  • Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA

  • Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA

  • Selenium: 22% of the RDA

  • Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc

OH! And here's a video from me learning to work this egg cooker.

I hope you enjoy the video. Real talk. This was legit my first time using this.

Let me know if you like posts like these, and I'll keep them up! Hope you have a lovely night!
