Packed with protein, vitamin D, potassium, and vitamin B12, eggs are not only affordable and quick to cook, but they also offer a bounty of nutritional benefits. Try switching up some different ways you incorporate eggs into your diet!

  1. Blend a Salad Dressing: Hard boiled eggs make a delicious alternative to avocados in a homemade pureed dressing or sauce combined with whatever other ingredients you want like mustard, garlic, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.
  2. Over Oatmeal: crack one or two into morning oatmeal before cooking to add some power protein and fat; you can drop the egg right on top of the oatmeal or mix it in.
  3. Swap Out Chips: load up a hard-boiled egg with a scoop of guacamole.
  4. Morning Muffins: using a cupcake baking sheet, use eggs and your favorite veggies and proteins to make bite sized snacks.
  5. Toast Topper: slice a sweet potato and bake in the toaster until edges are crispy, top with poached egg.
  6. Savory Waffle: add an egg on top of a whole-wheat waffle, feel free to add bacon, avocado and some greens to spice up this yummy breakfast
  7. Frittatas: Put some cooked pasta in a bowl and beat with six eggs. Then, add a splash of milk or water and a healthy amount of chopped veggies, like zucchini, spinach, kale or broccoli. Then, heat a large nonstick pan, add the mixture and cook until it just sets around the edges. Pop into a 400-degree oven to finish cooking. Remove, flip it upside-down and slice into wedges. Can be made without pasta
  8. Breakfast Fried Rice: use a mixture of eggs, scallions, ginger, garlic & additional sauces to whip up a healthy bowl to start your day
  9. Add to Soups: add a poached egg on top of veggie based soups for some stomach-filling protein
  10. Egg Burritos: preheat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat and pour the eggs in, cooking until just set. Fill with beans, cooked chorizo or bacon, cheese and guacamole before rolling into a burrito.
  11. Hash Brown Egg-in-a-Hole: swap out bread with hash browns, using a skillet form a hole in the middle of the hash browns and crack an egg. Cook until it sets.
  12. Salad Topper: use a poached or hard boiled egg on top of salad for extra protein and flavor.
  13. Breakfast Pizza: top a classic margarita pizza with a few eggs! Cook the pizza about three-quarters, then crack the eggs in the center and cook the rest of the way. Or, you can cook the pizza all the way and top with fried eggs before serving.
