Eggs are one of the most versatile foods out there. They can be scrambled, boiled, poached, baked, fried, made into an omelette or chug them raw (NOT RECOMMENDED!) With approximately 70-80 calories and 6-7 grams of protein in a large egg they are also a great source of vitamins and minerals. I’m pretty happy having a few hard boiled eggs on toast but if you like some variety then check out these 10 different ways to enjoy your eggs 🙂
