Snarky Snacks says: this looks like a fancy pants lunch, but it is anything but.
I love the incredible, edible egg.
I eat one egg every single day.
I have normal cholesterol levels and would rather die eating eggs than die of leg cramps and side effects from Lipitor (don't get me started on that one).
Eggs are considered the "gold standard" for protein quality because their amino acids are the most digestible to humans.
There is so much new research about the health benefits of eggs. Eat the yolks too!
Egg yolks are one of the richest dietary sources of the B-complex vitamin choline, which is associated with better neurological function and reduced inflammation.
There is also evidence that dietary choline helps with fetal brain development when pregnant women eat it. Another side benefit of a diet rich in choline is happiness (works with serotonin).
I wake up happy everyday (I never thought eggs had anything to do with that).
You may like your hard boiled eggs cooked 10 minutes, or if you are my mom, then 15 minutes (along with her 2 hour baked chicken, well done), but I like my 7 minute egg.
It's a free country.
This month's Bon Appetit says that a 7 minute egg is "ready for ramen!".
Sriracha sauce, Sambal Oelik chili sauce, hot sauce, rooster sauce, whatever you like to call it, it's addictive.
A dab'll do ya, so use it sparingly or a trip to the ER is in your future.
It's on every college campus lunch table now, no more ketchup.
It seems people stock up on this stuff for fear of running out.
This is a great breakfast, snack or even quick appetizer.
Boil your eggs (I like mine jammy and warm) for 7 minutes.
Run under warm water immediately to peel off shells.
Dab a spot of creme fraiche, along with a dab of hot sauce.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.
Plop in mouth whole.
Lunch is served.
Hot and yummy!
