Diets. It seems like every couple of months a new trend sprouts up. How can you figure out which diet is good, and which diet is a flash in the pan? More importantly, how can you figure out what diet works for you?
While food fads come and go, eating more fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains is always in style. Additionally, it’s been shown pairing raw veggies with eggs can improve the nutritive value of a salad, in more than one way (details here). Yeah, just like your mom, we’re telling you to eat your vegetables.
Luckily we know how to jazz up the foods you weren’t fond of as a kid. Take spinach; add tomatoes and a hard-boiled egg. You’ll enjoy it so much, people will think you’re Popeye! Topping a salad with poached eggs is another great option because the yolk is like a built-in sauce. Here are some other delicious salads that #putaneggonit:
- Asparagus Salad Topped with Poached Eggs
- BLT Breakfast Salad with Soft Boiled Eggs and Avocado (Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner)
- Quinoa with Edemame, Parm and Egg (Spoiler alert: there are avocados too!)
- Spring Salad of Asparagus, Ramps, Snap Peas, and Peas, with Poached Egg and Lemon Zest Vinaigrette (Literally a mouthful)
