How Do You Like Your Eggs?
This blog post is done in partnership with the American Egg Board.
The American Egg Board has posed this simple question to Americans for the relaunch of the brand’s trademark “Incredible Egg.” Deviled, baked, fried, scrambled, sunny side up, or omelet, there are so many ways to enjoy the egg. On toast, in a salad, or as part of a meal, this campaign (How Do You Like Your Eggs?) from The Incredible Egg, helps people think about the many ways and occasions to enjoy eggs.
I may be NOBREAD, but my favorite way to eat eggs is on top of #glutenfree toast! Whether the base is avocado, nut butter, greens, or hummus, eggs are the perfect, protein-packed compliment to your brekkie. My go-to egg combo is a sunny-side up egg on peanut butter! There is nothing better than biting into the egg yolk and having the yolk ooze out- and paired with peanut butter- YUM.
I used to fear the yolk, even though the yolk is packed with most of the egg’s nutrients (Vitamins D and B12 & selenium) and 40% of the egg’s protein, so back in the day I was all about the fried egg. Cook it sunny side up, but then flip the egg and cook the top until the yolk firms to your liking. When cooked like this you can control the amount of yolk you want to cut into and eat. Lastly, when in doubt, scramble your eggs. Each bite has the perfect ratio of yolk to egg white, and scrambled eggs are the quickest to make! I paired my scrambled egg here with almond butter!
Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, with one large egg containing 6 grams of high-quality protein and nine essential amino acids, all for 70 calories. They also include choline (important for brain development), are packed with Vitamins D and B12 (don’t toss the yolk!), and are an amazing source of protein. Oh, and given eggs are inexpensive relative to other proteins, they are a great way to eat nutritiously and affordably.
