Eggs. One food and a million ways to make it. If you’re following me on Instagram it’s obvious that I’m a huge fan, especially on Sundays. Eggs really are one of the simplest and most satisfying foods to make a meal out of, and they’re filled with nutrition. I’ve featured soft-boiled, hardboiled, scrambled, sunny side up, poached, omeletted, and fried eggs on my IG, but figured it’s time to share the actual recipe to success with you!
Instead of giving away all my secrets, this recipe is just for sunny side up eggs you’ve been asking about.
As for the benefits, there’s no denying that eggs are a superfood—
– Brain Food: The choline found in eggs has been shown to increase neurological function and reduce inflammation.
– Weight Management: Eggs are great for weight loss at just 75 cals, 7 g of protein and 5 g of heart-healthy omega-3 fats. They have been shown to keep you fuller longer, so that means less calories throughout the day.
– Strong Immune System: The vitamin A, vitamin b12, and selenium are superstars at shielding you from sickness.
– Glowing Skin: It’s no wonder that I’ve had clear skin, since I started eating eggs again (after 3+ years!). The amino acid profile and vitamin A content are great for skin smoothening, collagen boosting, and cell rejuvenating action.
And not to worry, the yolk is not the bad guy. Although the yellow may have a bit of cholesterol, it also has all of the nutrients! My recommendation is 1 yolk to 3 whites, so that’s 3 eggs in total. If you’re just feeling egg whites, go for 4-5 whites.
Ok I’ll stop talking now and give you the recipe.
- 3 Eggs
- Avocado or Olive Oil
- Sea Salt and Pepper
- Spray a touch of avocado or olive oil into a skillet on medium to high heat.
- Let it heat up and crack 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg into the pan.
- Sprinkle some salt and pepper and cover the pan with a lid for 3-4 minutes. The whites should be less liquid-y and the yolk should be soft. If the whites are still wet, cover for another 2 minutes and check.
- Slide it off the pan, sprinkle salt and pepper again, drizzle a touch of olive oil over and enjoy!
You can serve the eggs with avocado (as I do far too often!), a slice of sprouted grain bread, or this chopped Israeli salad for maximum deliciousness.
