Eggs are truly a whole food.
While there has been some controversy about eggs and how they affect our health, we do know that they are easy to digest and that our bodies are able to absorb the majority of the protein found in eggs. In Chinese culture, it is believed that eggs have such powerful energy that one egg can be used in a dish to feed several people.
Eggs are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and packed with protein. It is a delicious brunch, lunch and dinner option. They also act as a binding agent in many baked goods. Hard-boiled eggs make a great whole food snack when you are feeling like you need a protein boost. You can even eat eggs raw by adding one to a smoothie. If you are going to eat raw eggs, make sure that they are organic to avoid the possibility of Salmonella poisoning.
Shell color of eggs is determined by the breed of the hen and has nothing to do with the quality and flavor of the egg. Yolk color depends on the diet of the hen. Blood spots in the yolk are caused by a blood vessel rupture that occurs during formation of the egg. It is a sign of freshness because blood spots will eventually dissolve as the egg ages, and they are fit to eat.
One of my favorite sandwiches is a toasted bread, smoked salmon slices, scrambled eggs and a baby arugula salad on top. Mix the arugula salad with olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
Whether you have a casual weekend gathering with friends or brunch with your family try extravagant eggs dishes. They are a treat, they give you the protein you need, and taste delicious.
