boiled eggs with paleo bread
The protein in eggs is of the highest quality and much better than in any other food. Eggs also contain vitamin B12, as well as tyrosine, tryptophan and choline, which aid fetal brain development if you’re pregnant. If you are looking for a healthy protein source to start the day, here you go!
Ingredients for 1 portion size
2 slices of paleo bread (see recipe)
Fill a small saucepan three-quarters of the way full with water and bring to a fast boil. Add a pinch of salt and using a slotted spoon, dip your eggs in and out and then lower them into the water. This will prevent them cracking.
Cook 5 minutes for runny eggs, 7 and 1/2 minutes for semi-firm or 10 minutes for hard-boiled.
Serve them with 2 slices of paleo bread, toasted and topped with mashed avocado or your favourite nut butter.
Andy’s Sugar Safe Tips:
When you buy your eggs, make sure the ones you buy in fact provide you with the wholesome nutrients they should. Some eggs on supermarket shelves are touted as the best but actually are not; for example, omega-3 eggs or “nutrient-enhanced” ones. These actually more often than not come from chickens that are fed poor quality sources of omega-3s that are already oxidised. They will go off much quicker than non-omega 3 ones. Instead, look out for organic free-range eggs that come from local farmers.
