Whenever the question arises “what shall we have for dinner today?” it is an absolute dilemma.

’s spicy, it has a bunch of vegetables in it and most importantly, it is extremely simple to prepare.

 

You can have khageena for breakfast, lunch or dinner (why are eggs considered a breakfast staple anyway? It’s such an excellent and versatile protein). What’s more is that it is endlessly customizable. Once you have the basic recipe in hand (like this one), then you can continue to add or eliminate elements from it.

This works extremely well as a healthy dish. All you have to do is simply use egg whites instead of whole eggs; or you can even divide the portions (half whole eggs and half egg whites) to maintain some of the fluffy texture.

Have khageena with parathas, roti or simple toast. You’ll love it whatever you choose.

Ingredients:

6 Eggs

1 medium onion, diced

2 green chilies, finely chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped

4 button mushrooms, sliced (optional)

1 small potato, diced into very small pieces. Roughly the size of your thumb’s nail.

Salt, to taste

Turmeric, a pinch

1½ tsp. red chili powder

2 tbsp. olive oil

Fresh coriander, for garnishing

Method:

In a bowl, beat eggs with salt, turmeric and red chili powder. Set aside.

In a large frying pan, heat oil. Add onion and sauté until translucent.

Add potatoes. Cook until just tender. This should take roughly around 3-5 minutes.

Now, add mushrooms, tomatoes and green chilies. Cook until the tomatoes are tender. Make sure you allow the water from the tomatoes to evaporate.

At this point, you can add any other vegetables or proteins you like. Some options are: green beans, peas, cooked chicken (it’s a great way to use leftovers), tofu, pan-fried paneer, corn, spring onions.

Add the whisked eggs to the vegetable mixture and stir continuously until the eggs are cooked. Make sure you do not over-cook your eggs or they will be dry.

Sprinkle a little fresh coriander over the top and serve!

*Note: You can adjust the quantity of green chilies and red chili powder according to the level of spice you prefer.

You are in the mood of eating an omelet or treating yourself with a plate of scrambled eggs. While you prepare for yourself a great breakfast, you throw away the eggshells. Now you’d say this is what they are for. However, what you are actually throwing away is a very good source of calcium.

What we are saying here is that you should try eating them instead. Do not make faces because eggshells are 95% calcium carbonate. How about that! We hear your bones want some, alright. A single eggshell has 2 grams of calcium, which is more than your daily required amount. No need to eat a lot of it.

How to Eat Eggshells

So, we see you still have that frown on your face. Eggshells are not very palatable to be honest. However, you do not have eat them raw. Here is the way to go about it:

Step 1

First of all, boil the egg shells. This will kill off any potential bacteria.

Step 2

Now bake them for 10 to 15 minutes at 200-degree Fahrenheit.

Step 3

Take the baked eggshells and grind them into a fine powder.

Tada! The ultimate source of calcium is here. This will keep your bones healthy and strong for years.

An Excellent Treatment for Osteoporosis

Eggshells are an excellent source of calcium carbonate. They have been reported to reduce bone loss and pain in women suffering from senile osteoporosis. If you do not feel like eating the powder form, you can add it in other recipes for example, bread, pizza dough, and spaghetti. Add a pinch of eggshell powder while preparing the dish and you will be good to go!

Here Is Why You Need To Stop Throwing Eggshells Away

Be Careful

Yet, you need to be careful when it comes to calcium intake. While too little of it can cause pain in the bones, too much of it is not recommendable either. The best dosage is 1 gram of calcium per day. Take care of your health and maintain the balance.

Eggs are consumed by many of us on a regular basis. Though they have remained a little controversial for their nutritional values and their effect on our body, still nobody can deny what an egg taste like and how many benefits it provides.

Eggs contain a multitude of nutrients which are necessary for the proper growth of our body. Many people are thriving hard to eat well and be slim and trim. However, nowadays many people do not just want to be all slim and trim but also wish to develop a life style which is healthy.

People now wish to fight off any diseases and tend to be a little more conscious about what they are eating. Eating healthy is now the priority and enabling individuals to be a little healthier fighting off any harmful diseases.

Chicken eggs contain all the essential amino acids, which enable the normal growth of body causing various vital organs of the body to work in a proper fashion. Eggs are rich in retinol, vitamin B, folic acid, iron, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.

All these are necessary for the proper growth of your body. These are important for your immune system, thus causing various diseases to be shaken away. Eggs contain quite a lot of vitamin D. Very few food contain vitamin D naturally. So that is actually a rare occurring. Egg yolk contains around 60 calories while egg whites contain 15 calories.

Hence, egg yolks are rich in nutritional value as compared to the egg white. The yolk constitutes of around 33 percent of the liquid weight of the egg as a whole, while contains all the fat leaving no fat present in the egg white.

There have been an equal number of health issues and controversies related to eggs, probably as many as their benefits. Yolk contains more fat as compared to that of the egg whites, thus the fattiest part of the egg turns out to be the egg yolk. Hence people suffering from any cholesterol issues must curb down the number of eggs they eat on daily basis.

The controversies whether egg poses some risk to the general health of the eater remains a question highly in debate. A few researchers say that egg may increase the cholesterol levels of the individual while a few other researchers have acknowledged the better side of egg and have said that eggs when eaten in moderation will not cause any danger. Hence eating one egg per day might not be as dangerous.

The link between eggs and the type 2 diabetes again remains controversial, where some studies show that it is somehow lined to the reasons which cause type two diabetes while others persist that there are no risks involved. Some studies show that eggs increase the risk of cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients. However, more studies are required for this to be conclusive.

Studies have also shown that heart disease might be caused by eggs.

Again controversies still persist, however more studies show that eggs have a tendency to raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol and they have a tendency to change the LDL (the “awful”) cholesterol to a vast subtype which is not connected with an expanded danger of heart disease.

All in all, in their entirety, eggs are amazingly nutritious, containing a lot of supplements contrasted with the calorie load. The supplements are mostly found in the yolks, while the whites are, for the most part, protein. Nonetheless, it is better to eat in moderation and avoid any health issues that could be involved.
