If there is one food in this world that I don’t think I could give up, it would probably be eggs.
Ask me this question 4 years ago during college and I probably would have said diet coke or Jimmy Johns, but that’s neither here nor there.
There are so many great things about eggs, I can’t just pick one reason why I love them so much.
For one, they are cheap. Yes, we could get them cheaper (we now buy organic eggs) but still paying $3 per dozen is still only 25 cents an egg. There is no way you could find quality meat that is that cheap.
Two, they pack 6 grams of protein in only 70ish calories each!
Three, they are so versatile! You can make an egg sandwich, egg burrito, frittata, quiche, egg scramble (like I did tonight for dinner, see below), egg salad, omelettes…the options are endless.
Scrambled eggs with zucchini, onion and mozzarella cheese.
Four, which is somewhat already mentioned in number two, but for a few eggs they are a small amount of calories that are more than fulfilling.
Five, you can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner (though I prefer dinner) and even snacks! I’m looking at you hard boiled eggs.
So there you have it. A profession of love. An ode to eggs. Here’s to a wonderful life together!
