Did you know that eggs can help you lose weight and gain muscle as well as keep your appetite at intact? Most people already eat a lot of eggs; the only problem is that unless you have a limitless appetite for omelets and scrambles, incorporating this protein-packed power food into your diet can get boring. You’ll probably be glad to learn of these 7 tasty and creative ways to enjoy benefits of eggs.
1. On a Pizza
Prepare your favorite homemade pizza recipe and bake until almost cooked. Carefully crack a few eggs around the pizza and return to the oven until the whites are cooked but the yolks are still just a bit runny.
2. On a burger
Skip the mayonnaise next time, and top your lean beef or turkey burger with an over-easy egg. It’s the best!
3. Kitchen-sink scramble
In a pan, saute leftover vegetables, meats or leafy greens, and then throw in eggs and cheese at the end. You’ll love it!
4. Breakfast sandwich
Using a whole-grain English muffin, Canadian bacon and one egg or more, you can create a healthy breakfast sandwich that is perfect for you on your way out. And if you have any at hand, top it with a piece of cheese for a richer and better taste.
Make this calorie-filled breakfast treat more interesting by using whole milk instead of cream, and filling it with leafy green vegetables. For a complete and balanced meal, it’s best to combine eggs with whole grains and vegetables. Make your own whole-wheat crust for an even healthier take on the classic!
6. Simply baked
Crack two eggs into a small, ovenproof ramekin and top with finely chopped vegetables and a splash of whole milk. Bake until whites are set but yolks are still runny enough for dipping. Choose whole-grain toast to make this a perfectly balanced vegetarian meal.
7. Fried rice
Stir-fry chopped broccoli, bell peppers and carrots in oil until softened, and then add a few beaten eggs. You can add leftover fried rice or just make brown rice of your own, add to the mix and cook until everything is perfect. Add soy sauce and sesame oil to finish.
