3 Easy Egg Recipes To Boost Your Protein Intake
Eggs are well known for being a good source of protein, but they can get boring after a while of cooking the same thing over and over. The good news is, you can switch things up a bit with these easy egg recipes while still getting that much needed protein.
1. Egg Salad
You’re probably thinking: been there, done that. Granted, you’ve most likely tried hard-boiled eggs on a salad, but have you ever tried it with a fried egg? We’re talking about an egg with the yolk still visible. Definitely a game changer.
When the yolk breaks and you let it run down, it acts as an additional dressing and takes your salad from good to great.
Tip: Throw in some salt, pepper, and bacon bits, and you have a delicious, balanced meal.
2. Cruciferous Medley
Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, kale and cabbage are nutrient dense vegetables. They’re high in vitamin C and fibre, and packed with antioxidants. How can you get any better than that? Well, read on.
Combining these vegetables with eggs means that you now have a high-protein, high-antioxidant dish that helps promote muscle recovery and boost testosterone levels. Check out the recipe below:
- Steam up some cruciferous veg of your choice then add it to a frying pan.
- Whip three eggs in a bowl with a couple of tablespoons of milk and pour them in with the vegetable medley.
- When the eggs have browned, take them out of the pan and transfer to a plate. Voila!
2. Try Them In A Wrap
This is a good option if you’re following a low-carb diet, and is one of the best egg recipes for dinner you can try. Here’s how to make the most out of eggs in a lettuce wrap:
- Scramble some eggs first.
- Take two lettuce leaves and lay them out on a plate with one half of each overlapping. You’re basically making a faux taco shell.
- Place the eggs down the center in a straight line.
- Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top and add some black sesame seeds, salt, pepper, and hot sauce.
- Wrap the edges of the leaves around the contents, and you’re done!
Tip: Feel free to switch out the hot sauce with some salsa if you prefer.
Go get yourself some free-range eggs and hit the kitchen to try some of the recipes above. None of the dishes take up too much time to create. Eating healthily doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming!
