“Egg”cellent!

Happy Easter everyone! Since all i see around me these days are eggs, what better subject to talk about!

Who doesn’t like a fluffy omelet for brunch? I love omelets, and love experiencing with the ingredients. Eggs are an important part of our diet where i come from; we have them for breakfast, lunch or even dinner sometimes. Plain, with spices, veggies or meat.

There is a misguided belief that the cholesterol in eggs (found in the yolk) raises cholesterol levels and puts you at risk. But several studies have shown that there is no link between egg consumption and either heart attacks or strokes.

Eggs are an excellent source of protein. Vitamins D and K which are found in eggs, protect us against cancer and help us live longer.

Organic eggs that come from free-range chickens are the best choice.

-Eggs may reduce the risk of cancer.

-Eggs keep our vision in good condition.

-Eggs may help in weight loss: feel fuller, more energy.

-Eggs are an ideal muscle- repair food after a workout.

-Eggs have high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids, which are good for heart health, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.

-Eggs are one of the only foods that contain vitamin D.

And here is my favorite and easiest omelette recipe:

2 eggs

1/3 cup cooking cream

3 mushrooms cut in slices

3 slices tomato

3 slices avocado

1 slice swiss cheese

salt & pepper

origano

1 tablespoon olive oil

*Beat the eggs with the cream, salt, pepper and origano.

Saute the mushrooms in the oil, add the egg mixture. Let it cook, flip to the other side.

When done, while still on the fire, add the cheese, let it melt, then add the tomatoes and avocado.

Turn over half the omelet and serve.

Enjoy your eggs!
