healthiest-way-to-cook-eggsHere are a few of the most popular cooking methods:

  • Boiled
  • Poached
  • Fried
  • Baked
  • Scrambled
  • Omelette
  • Microwaved

Cooking eggs make the protein in them more digestible. It also helps make the vitamin Biotin more available for your body to use. The vitamin and antioxidant content can be reduced from cooking, but they are still very high in nutrients. High-heat cooking can oxidize the cholesterol in eggs; however, eating eggs has not been linked with an increased risk of heart disease in healthy people.

5 Tips to Cook Super Healthy Eggs
1. Choose a Low-Calorie Method

2. Choose poached or boiled eggs if you trying to cut back on calories.

3. Combine Them with Vegetables. This is a good way to increase the fiber. Try putting them in an omelette.

4. Fry them in an oil that is stable at high temperatures (Options include Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Butter and Coconut Oil)

5. Choose The Most Nutritious Eggs You Can Afford. Pasture-raised and organic eggs are thought to be nutritionally superior to caged and conventionally-produced eggs.

  • Don’t Overcook Them
  • The longer and hotter you cook your eggs, the more nutrients you may lose.

Overall, eating eggs are generally super healthy no matter which way you cook them. While poached or boiled eggs may be the healthiest way, enjoy them whichever way you would like.
