I’m a huge fan of eggs because they are a great source of
protein and fat, they’re inexpensive and quick to make. I find that so many of my clients don’t utilize
eggs enough in their diet so I wanted to share some creative ways to enjoy
them. Breakfast is obvious- scrambled,
omelets, sunny side- up, etc. But how
about a breakfast burrito? Wrap cooked
eggs in a whole wheat tortilla with cheese, veggies, and salsa. Roll in foil and you’ve got a meal on the
go. I also love to scramble eggs with
brown rice, low sodium soy sauce, a little peanut oil and chopped carrots,
onions and peas for a quick “fried rice”.
And who says you can’t serve a big omelet with whole wheat pancakes for
dinner? Kids love it, and it’s an easy
meal anyone can make. Please share your
favorite egg recipes!
