So, what is this magic ingredient? Wouldn’t you like to know.. I’ll give you a few hints:
1. It’s used in most baking recipes. Any guesses? No, none? Alright, clue #2:
2. It’s filled with healthy fats and protein. Still stumped? Okay last clue:
3. It’s my favorite breakfast ingredient.
That’s right! The magic ingredient is EGGS! Did you guess right?
Eggs are easily one of my favorite foods. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They’re a solid source of healthy protein and fat, too!
Despite common belief, egg yolks are actually one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. I’ve already discussed the misconceptions about dietary fats, here, but this is your reminder that fats are not the enemy. That is- naturally-sourced fats. I’m not talking about the man-made fats, like Crisco or canola oil. In fact, the fat in eggs, specifically in the yolk, provides plenty of essential vitamins and minerals, including:
However, quality always matters. Opt for pasture-raised, organic eggs as often as possible. Or, if available, get eggs from your local farmer! These high quality eggs will naturally contain more nutrients.
Eggs are also packed with protein. One large egg, including the white and yolk, has 7-8g of protein. In case you haven’t heard, you should minimally consume about .8g of protein per pound of body weight, daily. For example: If Sally weighs 100 pounds, she should consume at least 80g of protein daily.
How much protein do you consume daily?
It’s really quite simple. To start, you’ll need 4 pasture-raised, organic eggs.
Scramble the eggs well. Add a sweetener, if you want. I like using this stevia. You can also add vanilla extract for flavoring, but I wanted to keep it simple.
Then, pour the “batter” into the waffle waker and trick yourself into thinking you’re eating carbs.
Finally, top your waffle with grass-fed or coconut yogurt, cinnamon, chocolate chips, ghee and salt, whatever you want – the world is yours!
