Now we eat eggs a couple times a week. There is always a container of hard boiled eggs, already peeled, ready for a quick protein snack for my teenager. When my eight year old is hungry, two scrambled eggs are her first choice.
The protein in eggs is the highest quality protein found in any food. While eggs do not qualify for a vegan diet, they are a delicious source of protein for the vegetarian and the omnivore.
Scrambled? Poached? Fried? Hard Boiled? Benedict? Omelet? Frittata? Runny yolks or cooked through?
Eggs can represent love and caring, when you cook them for someone.
- In the movie "The Runaway Bride" Julia Robert's character does not know how she likes her eggs cooked, she always morphs her desires to her mates. Part of her self discovery is cooking a multitude of egg dishes and seeing how she truly likes her eggs.
- In the movie "Morning Glory" Harrison Ford's character breaks out of his curmudgeon ways by cooking a Frittata in order to retain the show's executive producer.
- In my life, a good friend, the award winning photographer Beth Skogen cooked me vegetarian eggs, with organic mushrooms and kale. She scrambled them in the pan, so there were separate white and yellow portions. I am personally a squeamish egg eater, but this was a delightful act of cooking kindness, I had to eat the eggs. They were so very delicious!
So tell me again, how do you like your eggs?
