Not a week goes by without an epic creation with one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods – eggs. Eggs are a reliable source of nutrition, particularly amino acids of which they contain all essential amino acids which the body requires to build proteins.
To quickly recap essential amino acids are those the body cannot produce, those synthesised by the body are known as non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids must be obtained from dietary sources. Enter… eggs. So to give you a quick bit of inspiration on how you can get more of these wonder nutrients in, we’ve listed our top eggie meals of late. Enjoy!!
GREEN EGGS WITH PUMPKIN HERB LOAF AND GREEK YOGHURT
Simple omelette whisked with 1/2 tsp spirulina powder, spring onions, dills and hemp seeds to finish. Served with pumpkin herb loaf from Seasons to Share (buy your copy HERE), avocado, baby spinach and sauerkraut.
Baked Eggs with Cabbage, beans, radish, parmesan and basil
This number was a bit of a left over pull together with our favourite red cabbage and radish to bring the colour to life in the dish. Baked eggs are super easy just make sure there is a little bit of liquid from cooked vegetables or tomatoes in the dish and you’re good to go. This dish (in love with my Chasseur cook ware…find yours HERE) served a few of us, but if it’s just you then it’s the perfect chance to have leftovers ready for lunch the next day right? Good nutrition comes from a little bit of preparation.
Eggie Nourish Bowl with all the trimmings
Soft boiled eggs topped with mixed dried herbs (oregano, kale, rosemary) on a bowl of roast, steamed and raw vegetables, with beetroot hummus (epic – RECIPE HERE for you), pesto (find my favourite go to recipe that I can easily mix and match with other herbs or nuts HERE) and kimchi to bring flavour to the meal. The colour in this bowl is the ultimate stand out. Aim to eat the colours of the rainbow in nourishing wholefoods always.
Baked Eggs with mexican flare
Simply saute tomatoes, capsicum, corn, coriander, baby spinach, paprika and jalapenos then top with eggs and place in oven to cook or alternatively whack a lid over the top and let the eggs cook on the stove top. Individual sized pans like this one are wicked and make eating for one THAT much more interesting. Get onto it. Recipe for this one is right on over HERE….
Green eggs with spinach avo and sauerkraut
Enriched these eggs with some milk to amp up the protein a fair bit too. Find the recipe HERE… Adding sauerkraut to any meal is going to help your daily intake of probiotics, aid digestion and support immunity. Worth having a jar of sauerkraut in the fridge!
Green eggs with spirulina, herbs avo, activated seed bread
And a green juice or smoothie for now or later if you need it!!!! RECIPE for the bread posted just the other day and it’s the perfect compliment to any eggie meal (or other for that matter too!) Gluten, dairy, refined sugar free – pumped with delicious though.
Dukkah eggs with greens and avo.
