If you don’t have problems with eggs or you are not allergic, eggs are a great source of nutrients. It has fat, protein and vitamins and minerals. And most of that is in the yolk so please don’t throw away the yolk! The nutritious part is in the yolk. And if you are going to eat eggs, try to buy pasture-raised. Pasture-raised vs industrial eggs have far more nutritional value and the evidence is in the color of the yolk which is deep golden yellow vs. pale and watery looking. If you can’t find pasture-raised, you can always get organic eggs which is the next best thing.
Best way to eat the eggs are making them soft boiled. The more raw the yolk is, the better the nutrition. I personally like 6:30 eggs which is pictured here. You can do 6 minutes but I found the shell a little more difficult to peel. 7 minutes is ok too but the yolk is just too over done for my tastes.
2 or 3 Pasture Raised Eggs
Pinch of sea salt
1 tsp Scallion or Dill (optional)
Boil enough water to cover the eggs
Slowly and gently place eggs in the boiled water. Be delicate as eggs can crack especially pasture-raised eggs. They are much more delicate.
Boil for 6 minutes and 30 seconds. (Being precise with time is the key.)
Remove from heat and drain hot water out. Run cold water into the pot with eggs and let it sit for a minute or 2.
Remove shell and cut eggs lengthwise. Sprinkle with sea salt. Add scallions or dill or frankly, any herb of your choice! Serve the eggs with some steamed broccoli, spinach or asparagus topped with ghee, butter, olive or coconut oil.
