Choose Eggs

Scrambled, hard boiled, over easy, sunny side up, over hard, over medium, or poached. How do you like your eggs? I enjoy them almost every morning of the week over easy. What better day to talk about eggs but a Sunday when most of us enjoy a delicious brunch.

Eggs are such a simple thing to make. I think I was about 9 or 10 when I fried my first egg on a small cast iron skillet. After awhile you get tired of the old pick the cereal out of the cupboard game, especially when the options are down to Raisin Bran or Raisin Bran.

My reasoning for having eggs in the mornings is simple. They are cheap, quick to make and vary the style, and packed with nutrition! Protein being the most important factor.

Each egg has about 6 grams of protein. But what about the yolk and the cholesterol? This is definitely something to take into consideration if you have an issue with an increased cholesterol level.

If it is a concern of yours you can always stick to egg whites which will still give you about 4 grams of protein. If you find yourself in a boring rut of carbs in the morning mix it up and don’t be afraid of the egg!

Homework: This is simple if you don’t have a good source of protein in the morning already, try to incorporate eggs a few times a week. P.S. The avocados of day 1 make a nice pairing with the eggs in the morning to keep you full!
