TGIF friends! This week was relatively smooth after my traffic and being late to work debacle the other day 😞. I’ve been experimenting with egg cooking and haven’t attempted to poach eggs in forever. Not too hard, ended up with this yolky guy. How do you like your eggs? -
To make: crack egg into saucer, then carefully drop straight into boiling water with a tbsp of vinegar, then keep at a slow boil for a little over 3 minutes.
Breakfast at home this morning 💛... working from home today because Ryder was sick all night having to get up almost every hour to go outside .. it was a long miserable night.. thankfully we have a popsugar flex program that allows us to work remotely if needed (one of the aspects of my job that I’m grateful for) .. spending today working but then getting my sweat in later + cooking a healthy dinner 🍃 🥘.. happy Thursday everyone! ... it’s almost the weekend ✨🤩
Just a mini harvest from the minifarm. I live by this theory in life if you give positive energy you shall receive positive energy. I have given the chickens and the vege plants so much love and care and now they are providing me with sustenance. #homegrown#chickenfriends#iloveeggs#giveandtake

Once villainized as a source of high cholesterol, eggs have recently taken back their place as America’s favorite breakfast food. Eggs are such a mainstay, even vegan products are created to try to imitate the taste and texture of a good ol’ egg.
According to Webmd, “One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids.
The egg is a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults. And brain development and memory may be enhanced by the choline content of eggs.” The American ❤️ Association gives otherwise healthy adults the green light to eat one egg a day. Seriously who can eat just one egg?! But be mindful, eggs are an animal food and animal foods are notorious for being sources of saturated fat, so maybe not eat a three-egg omelet on a daily basis.
Get your egg on!
Do you love eggs? ⠀
I love my eggs 🍳! Ask my family and they will tell you that eggs are my fav any which way. I like to alternate eggs and my shake every other day. Today was definitely an egg day. Being under the weather sometimes my shake just doesn’t sound appealing, ya know? ⠀
So here it is:⠀
Eggs 🥚 ⠀
Asparagus 🌱 ⠀
1 slice of cinnamon toast #breakfast#mornings#iloveeggs
Playing around with breakfast ideas led to this- garlic and herbs (parsley, rosemary, and thyme) cooked in a little butter with eggs cracked and cooked overtop. Nice savory take on morning eggs. Next time I’ll shave a little parmesan on top 😋 .
🥯 Do you like bagels? I never used to be that into bagels until I met my husband, a New Yorker. 🗽So he can talk forever about how the best bagels are from there, how it has something to do with the water and the perfect texture.... lol.
But are bagels healthy? Actually, not really. 😕 Bagels typically are overly processed and don’t have a ton of nutritional value. But, if they’re your jam, and because my husband likes them so much, I’ve been figuring out how they can be part of a healthy lifestyle!
You can choose a whole grain option, or add greens and high protein 🥚, high fat toppings 🥑 to half, then save the other half for another day. The added protein and fat will help keep you full, without having to eat the whole thing all at once! I made this today. Would you eat it? #bagelsandwich#bagelporn

TEA EGGS - who’s had these before??
If you haven’t tried tea eggs, you’ve got to do it! The eggs are steeped in an aromatic tea and spice mixture and come out beautifully marbled and flavorful. Since eggs are such a big part of Easter, I thought I’d share these with you as part of the Easter @ketocollabs
Making these involves first soft-boiling the eggs and then simmering them in a tea, soy sauce, & spice mix. This not only gives the eggs their cool look, but also infuses them with incredible flavor.
I’m sure there are many variations, but this is how I made mine after combining a handful of different methods. Below are options for both softer & harder boiled eggs:
1.I first soft boiled 6 eggs for 2.5 minutes then turned off the heat & put the eggs in an ice bath. Using the back of a spoon, I then gently cracked the eggs (this will help the tea infuse the eggs). Do not peel.
2.In a large saucepan, bring 6 cups water to a boil, then mix in 1/3 cup black tea, 1 cup soy sauce, 1 cinnamon stick, 4 cardamom, 1 tsp fennel, 1 tablespoon Chinese five spice, 4 star anise, 3 bay leaves, 4 cloves garlic, 1 tsp chii, & 1/2 tsp peppercorns. Feel free to substitute anything you don’t have or don’t like.
3.Bring the mixture to a boil, then put on LOW, cover, & boil for 25 minutes.
4.At this point, remove lid, put the heat on medium, & add your cracked eggs back in for 4 minutes, remove, and put in an ice bath again. If you want harder boiled eggs, put the heat on low but keep the eggs in for 1 hour.
5.Once the eggs are out, let the tea cool down. Then put the eggs in a mason jar, cover with the tea, and store for 6 hours to overnight. This will allow the tea to infuse the eggs some more.
6.Peel and enjoy. These are enjoyed with a meal or even cold as a snack. Eat them as you wish!
