They’re the breakfast and brunch staple that normally comes loaded with butter, milk, and maybe even a splash of cream (we’re sorry, arteries), but when it comes to how to make healthy scrambled eggs, that got our chefs thinking: how can we whip ‘em up and still get them tasting like a treat. Let’s get cracking.
Why are eggs healthy?
Eggs are little nutrient powerhouses, because they’re a complete source of protein. Rich in vitamins and minerals, they even contain all nine essential amino acids (known as ‘building blocks’) the body can’t produce on its own.
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin B12
- Lutein and zeaxanthin
The flip side (pun intended) is that eggs can get a bad press because they also contain levels of fat and saturated fat that contribute to cholesterol, but like anything, they’re great in moderation, as part of a healthy balanced diet.
All your Mindful Chef eggs are 100% British and free-range. So firstly make sure the eggs you’re treating yourself to are the best ones your pockets will allow.
