One of the things I really miss about home is cooking. In Bali, It’s so cheap for us to eat out that at the moment we don’t even have a kitchen! (SOB).
Because of this I have developed an unhealthy addition with cooking blogs. I’m not gonna lie. I’m a little bit out of control. Rather than spend all day every day frantically pinning food to my Pinterest board. I thought I would channel some of that energy into creating blog posts by sharing some of my favorite recipes from the internet here.
In the interest of being organized (and so I don’t go completely wild), I will give each post a theme. Today’s theme is one of my favorite foods of all time – Eggs.
Anyone that knows me knows, I’m an Eggs for breakfast kind of girl. Obviously, you don’t have to eat them at breakfast; they are pretty good at all times of the day. I just like mine in the morning (Or sometimes for lunch, or a quick dinner…you get the picture). I love ‘em.
They have had a bad rap in the past (more on that another time), but it’s now considered safe to include around 7 eggs a week as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
This is good news, as these little gems are packed with nutrients. They are a good source of high quality protein (one large egg contains around 77Kcal and 6g of protein, including all 9 essential amino acids) and they contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. They also contain Lutein and Zeaxanthine, two antioxidants which are known for their benefits to eye health through reducing the risk of age- related macular generation.
On top of all that, they are inexpensive and taste great!
