Warning. This post contains egg puns.
When my new PT sent me her meal plan it had an Eggxtreme amount of eggs to be consumed- 6 a day! 6 eggs, 6!!!!! I was really upset to learn that chocolate eggs don’t count- reckon I could go a full bakers dozen on chocolate eggs.
Now I like eggs as much as the neggxt guy (sorry) but the thought of eating 6 a day makes me feel positively horrific.
So I’m aiming for a few, some days more than others. Here’s some egg-tra-ordinary ways of getting some eggs Into your day to day life:
How do you like your EGGS IN THE MORNING??
At work I’m against microwaving eggs. Sorry guys but I just don’t think it’s socially eggceptable. Yes, its practical and yes well done, you are getting your healthy fats in and a good dose of protein nice and early but seriously, we don’t all want to smell it.
So i save my breakfast eggs for the weekend and generally have them 1 of 3 ways:
1. POACHED: (they look like terrible aliens because I’m really bad at poaching) but they taste unreal with some avocado and bacon.
2. DIPPY: The king of eggs of course. Bit of toast- dream come true.
3. SCRAMBLED: ala this morning with some cherry tomatoes chucked in and a nice serving of either smoked salmon or prosciutto (Why not add more fats!)
SNACKING EGGS (if there is such a thing)
Soft boiled eggs, the true challenge of any Michelin starred chef I’m sure, gooey yolk, hard whites. The trick for me is this- bring the water to the boil, chuck eggs in (mine are stored in the fridge for my sins) and boil for 6 mins. Not a second more, not a second less. I never move off the sofa faster than when soft boiled eggs beep at me. Straight into cold water and then boxed for a snack at work the next day- treat yourself to some ham with them so you don’t look too freaky tucking into an egg like it’s a delicious apple sat at your desk.
And the best, PUDDING EGGS. Yep, delicious pudding eggs. A more egg-citing way to get in your daily egg quota:
PANCAKES : 1 x banana 1 x egg beaten together and fried in coconut oil. I slather them in Greek yoghurt and berries or dark chocolate and it’s bloody delicious.
BISCUITS: I also sometimes make healthy biscuits- 1 x banana, 1 x egg, 1/2 cup pats and handful of dark chocolate chips. Add some cinnamon, squeeze of honey. Bash it all together and roll into little balls and bake for around 15 mins. Eat straight out of the oven with a cheeky little brew.
So have an egg-cellent Sunday, no egg-cercise for me today – day of rest! Hope your weekend was cracking. Oh god, I’ve got to stop.
