29 egg recipes for a different healthy breakfast every day of the week
We all know eggs are really good for us, right? So I’ve compiled this handy list of 29 healthy egg recipes from some of the best food bloggers on the internet.
I want to start by briefly explaining the nutritional profile of eggs, and why they’re so darned good for us.
Eggs contain all of the amino acids our bodies need, making them a perfect source of protein. They’re also a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, D E & B12, antioxidants, iron and choline.
I eat eggs almost every day, usually for breakfast or lunch. Soft boiled eggs are my favourite, especially now that I can cook them in my pressure cooker. I pop the eggs into the pot, seal the lid, set the timer, and about ten minutes later I have perfectly cooked eggs, with runny yolks. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
The only downside to eating a lot of eggs is that it can get boring sometimes. So that’s why I called on some of my food blogger friends for recipe inspiration – and boy did they deliver!
What you’ll find below is a collection of egg recipes that’ll give you plenty of exciting new ideas to try.
