Who doesn’t have eggs in their fridge? I bet most of you do. Egg is a very common staple food item in everybody’s home. It’s very easy to keep, doesn’t cost much, and provide great nutrition. Eggs also contain protein, fat and numerous nutrients including vitamin A and E, iron and calcium.

This super nutrition is extremely versatile when it comes to cooking it in healthy ways but we always need to make sure that eggs we choose are fresh without cracks or any odor. Eating eggs can also help you lose weight because they contain just 75 calories but 7 grams of protein each, simultaneously satisfying and satiating hunger.

Eggs are mostly used for breakfast so here is the variety of healthy options to cook eggs. Get ready for the egg-ceptional breakfast:

Scrambled Egg

Measure one tablespoon of milk for each egg you’ll be using and whisk them together, add a sprinkle of salt and pepper as per your taste. Heat two teaspoons of butter or oil at medium heat and pour in the eggs. Don’t stir the eggs.

Create a more elaborate meal by adding chopped vegetables, cheese or meat to your scrambles. You can serve them alongside toasted bread or fresh fruit. Eggs cook quickly on the stove, so monitor them constantly as you are scrambling them. Turn and fold gently with a wooden spoon or spatula until all the liquid is set.

Fried Egg

Frying an egg barely needs a teaspoon of butter or oil; you just need to pre heat the pan and crack the egg and gently slip it into the pan.

Take care of the hotness of pan and reduce the heat to low right away if the egg starts sticking the pan. When the yolk should just begin to thicken, your egg is ready to come out of the pan to your stomach. It is your choose to between sunny side up or over-easy. If you like your yolk more firm, flip the egg and cook it for a bit longer.

Add salt and pepper as per your taste and enjoy your fried egg with toast or with cooked vegetables and potatoes.

Boiled Egg

Boiling eggs adds no extra fat. Boiled eggs can be used alone as a high-protein snack. They can also be transformed into mouth-watering and healthy egg salads for breakfast.

It is the simplest way to consume it as you just need to place the egg in a saucepan and cover the egg by a measurement of water in such a way that water covers the whole egg.

Place the saucepan to the stove and as soon as the water starts to boil, remove the pan from the stove and let the egg stand in the water for 2-5 minutes as it gets harder to peel the hard shell of the egg. To peel, make a crack in the shell and then roll the egg gently in your hands. As soon as you are done peeling the egg, it is ready to eat. For a healthier breakfast, you can cut the boiled egg into circle pieces and sandwich it into a toast with butter, salt and pepper.


Making omelets is super easy and one of the best ways to get creative with your egg. It can take a few times to perfect the omelet-making technique, but once you have it, it’s quick and painless.

Break the egg into a bowl; give it a whisk with fork, heat a non-stick pan and pour beaten egg in the pan and you can add whatever healthy toppings that suit your taste. Some possibilities include fresh mushrooms, spinach, sausages, peppers, onions, olives and cheddar cheese.


Pancake and Nutella! Who doesn’t love this mouth-watering breakfast? You just need to take a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar and flour and pour it into a non-stick pan trying to make a thin crepe out of it and take it off when both the surface starts to show brown color.

Kids love pancakes with either Nutella or Hershey’s chocolate syrup. You can also roll strawberries or bananas into the pancake and enjoy the healthy meal.
