The incredible edible egg. What more can be said about this delicious wonderful food.
Excuse me for a second while I go all Bubba on eggs. Eggs, eggs salad, hard boiled eggs, eggs over easy, eggs benedict, eggs sunny side up, scrambled eggs, eggs and bacon, eggs over medium, poached eggs, scotch eggs…
Ok well you get the idea.
I love eggs. Eggs are delicious, cheap, easy and versatile.
I recently had someone tell me “I don’t wan’t to eat eggs every day”. My first thought… “Why not”? I eat eggs every day and a lot of them. You don’t have to eat eggs prepared the same WAY every day, but I don’t see anything wrong with eating eggs every day.
First off, buy good eggs. The cheap eggs .99 cents per dozen or whatever are pretty much crap. Buy uncaged well fed (not with grain or corn) chicken. I read somewhere that those run of the mill cheap eggs have a omega6/3 ratio of 20/1 which is… well terrible. Happy chickens provide awesome eggs. Dark and varying yolk colors is a good sign you are getting good eggs. Even if you buy top of the line omega 3 rich eggs, you are still only going to be paying $3-$4 per dozen eggs. Compared to $.99 this may seem expensive but really when you consider the price vs. nutritional content, it is still a steal!
When I need to save money?… I increase the egg consumption. When I need a portable snack?… its hard to beat a hardboiled egg. A lot of people ask me what they can snack on when they don’t want to overdo the nuts or fruit. Its pretty hard to beat a hardboiled egg… and they are quite filling with all of the fat and protein.
Actually, eggs = freaking awesome.
Any good thoughts out there on eggs? Whats your favorite way to crack an egg? lol
