One of my favorite breakfast foods are eggs. I eat eggs probably close to 5 times a week and I consider myself a little bit of an eggspert (ignore the pun)! The benefit of eggs are plenty and it seems that more and more research are confirming that the best way to start your day is to crack a couple of eggs right into the frying pan (or pot of water ;)). Eggs are high in protein, high in omega-3 fat (the good kind of fat), and basically next to no carbohydrates. In a society which generally overdoes it when it comes to carbs, this makes eggs a superfood in my books.
One of the other great things about eggs are that they are extremely versatile. There are so many ways to cook eggs that there is always away to keep your breakfast interesting. You can fry them, bake them, boil them and even eat them raw! Pair them with a morning exercise routine and you’ll be on your way to meeting your fitness goals. Below is one of my favorite egg recipes.
Another pun to be ignored, this extremely simple breakfast treat is not only easy but is packed full of delicious flavor and healthiness. First for the ingredients:
- Free-Range Egg
- Salt & Pepper
First thing to do is pre-set you over for 375 degrees. While the over is warming up, take your avocado and open it up to give yourself two halves. De-pit the avocado and shave a way a few milimeters of avocado so your egg will fit. On the bottom side of the avocado, Cut a slite rivet in the peel so your avocado sits up nicely and balances when sitting flat. Be careful not to make this cut to deep and cut into the other side or else it won’t make a very good cup for your egg.
Once your avocado is prepared, take your egg and crack it into the hollowed out bowl you have created. If a little bit of the egg white leaks over the edge this is nothing to worry about. Place the Egg-Ocado on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the egg is cooked to your preference. I prefer mine a bit runny so when I scoop into my meal, the yolk leaks into the avocado. Enjoy with a spoon!
The above is not only rich and delicious but heart healthy too. The healthy fats of both the avocado will have your body dancing and the zero-carb breakfast will have you losing those extra pounds in no time. Do be aware however that although the fats in both avocado and eggs are ‘good fats’ they are still fat. Ensure you enjoy both in moderation daily as an entire avocado is more than enough ‘good fat’ for a couple of days. Enjoy this treat once per week… maybe twice!
