Eggs are not just for the weekend! It is so important that we all eat healthy breakfasts that fuel our bodies during the week. Cue Weekday eggs! Weekday eggs are quick and easy to cook and an excellent source of protein. You see, each and every large egg contains 6 grams of protein and also boasts 14 essential nutrients. Packed with Vitamins A, D, E, Folate, Iron and Zinc, eggs are one of the few foods to be considered a complete protein because they contain all essential amino acids. This means if you start your morning off with eggs, you are giving your body the fuel it needs to thrive over the course of a busy day.
I make sure to start my busy day off with Weekday eggs every single day! It doesn’t take more than 5 mins for me to make these recipes. Breakfast during the week can be as simple as scrambling or frying up some eggs. The weekday egg is little prep with big payoff.
