These are not some ordinary eggs men make in a jiffy. These are super eggs made by my husband for me that keeps me full for many hours. One morning when I was in a hurry running late for office he made me this with lots of cauliflower and black pepper. Cauliflowers always go well with eggs but you can experiment with all sorts of vegetables. To my surprise it kept me full for 5 hours.
Just sauté one cup of sliced cauliflower in coconut oil with black pepper (lots of) and salt and add 4 organic pasture raised eggs and scramble together. Good for 2 people to eat.
I suggest you try the below experiment for breakfast to understand the power of eating a good and satisfying breakfast that gives you energy throughout the day.
1. Eat nothing for breakfast and see how you feel until lunch and for the whole day.
2. Eat one bowl of cereal for breakfast and see how you feel until lunch and for the whole day
3. Eat some eggs made with egg whites and see how you feel until lunch and for the whole day.
4. Eat some eggs made with whole eggs and see how you feel until lunch and for the whole day.
5. Eat some whole eggs with vegetables added and see how you feel until lunch and for the entire day.
If you are only eating egg whites or avoiding eggs totally due to cholesterol concerns you are following an outdated 30 years old message. Read below why eggs are good for you.
- Eggs are one of nature’s superfoods
- According to Chris Kresser, who practices functional medicine and who is one of the top 100 influential people in health named by Greatist.com, eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. One egg provides 13 essential nutrients, all in the yolk.
- As per him, there’s no reason to limit your consumption of eggs to 3-4 per week, as recommended by “heart-healthy” nutritional guidelines. In fact, he suggests consuming 2-3 eggs per day would provide a better boost to your health and protection against disease than a multivitamin supplement. If you don’t want to take his advice, you can still go with American Heart Association’s (AHA) recommendation of 3-4 eggs per week. AHA guidelines actually allow one egg a day for healthy adults while still advising a total daily cholesterol limit of 300 mg.(One large egg contains 213 mg of cholesterol). So now there is no reason to restrict to no eggs or egg whites if you are an average healthy person.
- Commercial raised eggs have 19 times more pro inflammatory omega 6 so it is very important you get organic pasture raised eggs
- Eggs rank high on the Satiety Index scale, which means they may help you feel fuller for longer.
- Eating eggs for breakfast may increase your feeling of fullness and make you automatically eat fewer calories.
- Research shows that people who eat eggs for breakfast lose more weight than people who don’t.
- Eggs are cheap and easier to prepare.
