5 Ways to Eat Eggs On-the-Go

Eggs

Eggs are a complete protein. They contain important B-vitamins that help maintain metabolic function. And best of all, the versatile egg can be featured in many types of easy recipes for busy lifestyles.

It’s important to pair eggs with some kind of high-fiber carbohydrate source to maintain fullness levels and stabilize blood sugar. This can be done by adding fruit, whole-grain toast, crackers, or a granola bar. Here are five delicious ways to incorporate more eggs into your diet, along with a recipe for egg cups.

  • Egg cups with fruit
  • Boiled and made into an egg salad sandwich
  • Quiche to pair with a salad
  • Fried on a piece of toast
  • Frittata wrapped into a tortilla to make a burrito
