Eggs never seem to go out of style. They are one of those food items that are loaded with protein, vitamins and many nutrients that most people don’t get enough of. They can be a part of any meal of the day and prepared in a variety of ways.

For those looking to add more protein into their diet without upping their meat intake, follow our suggestions below!

 

1.) Frittata.​ ​This Italian form of quiche can be a delicious item enjoyed as a main dish with a side of salad or fruit. There are endless options when it comes to creating the perfect frittata. We recommend this light recipe with zucchini.

2.) Poached​ ​Eggs.​ ​If you’ve ever prepared a dish that just begged for a little extra dose of protein, a poached egg could be a great option to put on top. Poached eggs are cooked without the shell in boiling water. A secret method for maintaining the egg’s shape is adding a splash of vinegar to the pot.

3.) Hard​ ​Boiled​ ​Eggs.​ ​This type of preparation is versatile as hard boiled eggs can be eaten alone or mixed into salads. They can also be packed in a lunch or enjoyed the day after they are cooked. Follow this recipe to get the right finished product.

4.) Scrambled​ ​Egg​ ​Stir-Fry.​ ​If your veggie stir fry is missing the protein content you desire, scrambling a few eggs into it may be just the right fix. Try this healthy stir fry recipe with a base of rice noodles and bok choy.

5.) Egg​ ​Salad.​ ​Although many versions exist that are heavy with mayonnaise, we like this version which uses mustard instead. It can be enjoyed alone or served with bread or crackers.

Cooked egg dishes also make great leftovers!
