The Healthiest Way To Cook Eggs

KarimDavid.com

Eggs are a very good choice of food when looking to eat healthy.
Their versatility for a start is of great benefit, they’re extremely nutritious and very affordable… especially in bulk.

They have few calories in them, and are packed with lots of proteins, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals etc.

With all that being taken into account though, like most things the way you prepare is key as the way you prepare your eggs Morning, Noon or Night can affect the nutrients.

So down below we will explore the healthiest ways to cook and eat them.

What Are The  Different Ways Of Cooking Eggs?- Eggs as I mentioned earlier are versatile and can be cooked in so many ways,

but not only that, they can combine well with other healthy food such as vegetables. Cooking them destroys the dangerous bacteria, making them much safer to consume.

So here are the cooking methods of eggs:

Fried- eggs are cracked into a hot pan that typically contains oil.

Boiled- eggs are put into hot boiling water with their shells in place for about 5-10 minutes, just depending on how well cooked your yolk will be.

Of course the longer you cook the egg for the firmer the yolk will become.  

Baked- eggs are cooked when you put them into a hot oven until the eggs are set.

The heat of the oven should be 162°C  and you’ll have a 10 to 12 minute wait for them to cook.

Poached- Poached eggs are cooked in slightly cooler water than boiled ones.

They are cracked into a pot of water between 70 to 84 °C for 2 to 4 minutes.

Microwaved- Microwaves are used to cook eggs too. It takes the least time to cook eggs in a microwave than any of the other options, though it also taste the worst.  However, I must warn you not to put an egg still in its intact shell into a microwave, the reason being that it the egg will simply explode and make a total mess of your  microwave!

Scrambled- eggs are beaten in a bowl, poured into a pan which is hot and stirred over and over on low heat until the eggs set.

Omelette- eggs are beaten, poured into a hot pan and then cooked slowly on low heat until they become solid.

The difference between this and scrambled eggs is that an omelette is not stirred once it goes in a pan.

Which Ones Are Healthiest Then?- Overall then  the shorter the time plus the lower the heat when cooking, the better the nutrients are retained in the eggs.

So for this reason alone, the poached and boiled eggs are the healthiest choices to consume.

DID YOU KNOW?: Vegetable oil has no vegetable in it. It’s actually just made up from grains, seeds, beans!
