And no, we won’t apologise for the pun, because eggs are back.
It was a rough day for everyone when eggs were put on the no-go list; what were we supposed to eat for breakfast, bran flakes? No thank you. But all that worry is behind us, because this myth is busted. Eggs are not inherently bad for, in fact they provide your body with a lot of helpful unsaturated fats that work to unclog arteries. Yes, even the yolk is back on the good menu; put away the shame you feel when you eat a bacon and egg sandwich.
The myth is so pesky because egg yolks are high in cholesterol, and everyone knows that having high cholesterol is the quick way to a heart attack. The problem is that consuming large amounts of cholesterol does not mean that your blood will have a high amount of cholesterol, because that’s the human body for you. What causes high cholesterol is, in fact, large amounts of saturated fats, which are found in other fun things like butter and take-away. The truth is, when you eat more cholesterol, your body produces less of it, and that’s a good thing. So eggs are exactly what you need to keep those levels down.
There is some sad news, however. If you’re already suffering from high cholesterol, you’re going to need to watch how many bacon and egg sandwiches you have. Eating too many eggs when you already have problems with your cholesterol are just going to make it worse, sadly. So to embrace our rekindled love with eggs, we’re ranking some of our favourite ways to eat them!
Often quick and easy to make (you can add quite literally anything to your omelette), this is a good way to start the day.
Ranked this low on the list because it’s not the prettiest thing to see in the morning, but it sure tastes good.
- Hard boiled
Nature’s solution to man’s greatest struggle, figuring out how to prepare an egg that they can have for lunch.
It mixes two of the best ingredients: eggs and pastry. Add to the fact that you can get creative with the rest of the quiche ingredients, making it one of our favourite dinner options.
What’s more satisfying then breaking the outside of the poached egg and watching the gooey insides run everywhere? Nothing, that’s what.
- Toy soldiers (Frog in a hole/ Egg in a basket)
Simply the best way to eat eggs as a kid, and for this it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
- French toast
Not an egg-centric dish, but it’s the egg that makes it so good! Egg soaked toast is the only thing we want when we first wake up.
What can we say about fried eggs that you don’t already know? They’re amazing. Cook them sunny-side-up for the complete experience.
