Why choose eggs? They contain vitamin D, protein and even choline (nutrient that boosts your memory and may even curb anxiety). They're also loaded with amino acids, antioxidants, and iron.
Here are some delicious and simple egg recipes!
Egg and Cheese on a Roll
If you like to start your day with a flavor kick, this is your way to go.
Fill a corn tortilla with two scrambled eggs, 1/4 cup diced sautéed onions, and 1/4 cup of black beans. Then top with a tablespoon of pico de gallo (or more to taste).
Cheesy Cast-Iron Skillet Scrambled Eggs
Melt the butter in a large cast iron skillet that has been placed on the grates of the grill. Add the onion and jalapeno and cook until soft. Stir in the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring the eggs until soft curds form. Finish this recipe with fresh goat cheese and a few chives snipped on top
Frittata With Ricotta and Mixed Greens
Protein, healthy fats, and greens make this delicious, low-calorie frittata as healthy as it is delicious. Dark, leafy greens, swiss chard, or mustard greens are among the healthiest foods you can put on your plate, with loads of vitamins A, C, and K, plus fiber. Fresh herbs deliver a healthy dose of antioxidants along with flavor.
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft (about 4 minutes). Add pepper flakes and half of greens and cook until wilted and crisp-tender (about 5 minutes); place sautéed greens in a colander. Repeat with remaining greens. Cool slightly and squeeze dry; transfer to a bowl. Using paper towel, wipe out skillet and reserve.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, Parmesan, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper until smooth. Add to bowl with greens, vinegar, ricotta, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; stir to combine. Fold the ricotta mixture into egg mixture. In reserved skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Pour egg mixture into pan and cook until the sides are set (about 8 minutes). Transfer to oven and bake until completely set (about 15 minutes).
Baked Eggs in Avocado
The softness of the avocado and the eggs provide a very tasty and gentle combination. Just follow these steps.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Crack the eggs into a bowl, being careful to keep the yolks intact. Arrange avocado halves in a baking dish. Spoon 1 egg yolk into the avocado hole. Continue spooning egg white into the hole until full. Repeat with remaining egg yolk, egg white, and avocado. Season each filled avocado with chives, parsley, sea salt, and pepper. Gently place baking dish in the preheated oven and bake until eggs are cooked, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle bacon over avocado.
