Healthy Egg Recipes to Try
By Brandi Goodman
Deviled eggs are a popular appetizer to include at your holiday party. With Deviled Egg Day celebrated in November, it's no wonder the classic finger food is on many people's menu. This isn't the only egg dish you should be eating though. Eggs are a healthy food full of protein. Create a recipe that's fit for your next meal.
Spinach Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs are the perfect way to start your day. You should feel full and satisfied when you add spinach to the mix. Add a bit of fat-free milk and some pepper to taste. You can even add the eggs to a piece of whole grain toast for a really filling meal.
Healthy Egg Skillet
Ideal for lunch or dinner, a healthy egg skillet meal provides lots of nutrition. Roast spaghetti squash drizzled with avocado oil, pepper, and garlic powder. Roast a second pan of broccoli florets and Brussels sprouts with added garlic powder, pepper, avocado oil, and turmeric. Heat the roasted Brussels sprouts and broccoli over the stove with some of the shredded spaghetti squash before creating two openings in the dish for eggs to go. You'll get sunny side up eggs cooked among an array of seasoned vegetables that offer lots of fiber, vitamins, and calcium.
Mexican Baked Eggs
If you're in the mood for something a bit spicy then Mexican baked eggs is the choice for you. You'll start by sauteing onions and jalapenos with ground cumin and chili pepper in an oven-proof pan. Add in some diced tomatoes, black beans, and green chiles and let simmer for roughly 15 minutes. Use a spoon to make six indentations throughout the dish so you can crack several eggs into the pan. You'll then put the pan in the oven for 5 minutes until the eggs are mostly set before moving it to the broiler to finish. You can sprinkle on some cheese if you desire before moving to the broiler. Enjoy as is or add the mixture to whole grain tortillas.
Crustless Veggie Quiche
With over 11 grams of protein and under 200 calories per serving, a crustless veggie quiche is a great dish to try. Zucchini, squash, and bell peppers make up the veggie portion of this meal. Three eggs along with three separate egg whites will also be needed along with some fat-free milk and reduced-fat cheese. Chopped garlic, thyme, and pepper will add some seasoning to the mix.
Eggs pack lots of protein and nutrients. Start creating healthy egg dishes and add them to your regular menu for a boost in your nutrition.
