But, as the name of this post suggests, I'm also a fry-day fan! In what way you ask?
Eggs are hands down one of my favourite sources of protein.
I feel like they're on they're own in this world, with rarely anything comparable to them in taste, texture, or even functional properties- and this makes them special in my eyes!
In fact- eggs raise your levels of HDL cholesterol in the blood (the good kind of cholesterol) putting people at a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and lots of other diseases.
And that's not all!
These little treasure boxes of awesome also contain ridiculous amounts of other nutrients (Luetin, zeaxanthin, omega-3's, protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin A, choline, phosphorous, selenium, folate... the list goes on and on!)
As a kid, a firm, set yolk was the only way I could eat eggs. Fries/ boiled, never scrambled or poached with a firm yolk. I think it was a texture thing. I also didn't eat the whites (no matter how many times my parents told me that was the most nutritious- LIES!) S o I guess you could say, as a kid, I didn't really like eggs?
Now? Now I'm all about the runny yolks and the delicious white casing and all the different ways to eat eggs. You know my favourite's poached though...
Soft boiled eggs with....
All the toast soldiers (it's the child in me ;)
So yeh, eggs are awesome, and I feel like they deserved a whole post for themselves :)
Are you an egg lover?
Favourite way to eat/cook them?
Childhood egg memories? (I never thought of drawing funny faces/ messages on our eggs shells in the carton but I think I will when I have kids! ;)
I hope everyone has an absolutely fabulous
