Six Healthy Ways To Cook Eggs

The perfect boiled eggEggs in the past have had some quite bad press but despite what people say. I still think they are a good wholesome nutritious food probably a lot of you reading this will probably won’t have thought of all the various different ways you can eat eggs.

So here are six low-fat healthy ways to cook eggs.

Boiled Eggs

Very easy to do this way is, fill a saucepan with some water add some salt and boil your eggs depending on how you like your eggs, for soft-boiled boil for approximately five to six minutes.

And serve with wholemeal bread soldiers, you can put butter on the bread if you wish but make sure you spread sparingly and use low-fat spread.

For hard-boiled eggs follow the instructions for boiled eggs, except cook your eggs for about ten minutes, and serve with some toast, hard-boiled eggs are quite nice with a salad.

Scrambled eggs

I do my scrambled eggs one or two different ways, you can either cook them in a saucepan or in the microwave, whichever suits you best here is the method add about a quarter of a pint of milk into the saucepan, break two eggs Into the milk and whisk the eggs until the mixture goes yellow.

Put on a medium heat and stir until the mixture starts to bubble slightly, after a while the mixture will start to thicken and look like scrambled eggs. To do this in the microwave is a similar process but just use a microwaveable container made out of plastic or glass it doesn’t matter which.

Microwave on full power for about four to five minutes, depending on the power of your oven ours is a 650w oven and takes about roughly four to five minutes somewhere in between that time.

How you choose to serve this Is a matter of personal preference, I normally have mine on wholemeal bread. You can of course add some fresh parsley and sprinkle some ground pepper just to add a bit of flavour.


Break two eggs Into a large mug use a fork to whisk them together, until you have a yellow mixture. Put a frying pan on to a medium heat, add some cooking oil corn oil or olive oil which probably the healthiest you don’t need a awful lot of cooking oil, add the mixture and cook it until it looks like a pancake. Turn once during cooking.

You can add some vegetables, If you wish add chopped mushrooms and chopped onions to bulk it up a bit and serve with a sauce of your choosing as a garnish.

Poached Eggs

Boil some water in a saucepan add some salt for flavouring, then slowly lower down the heat in order to simmer the water carefully break an egg into the saucepan and wait until you’re egg has turned white take out using a spoon perforated preferably and serve with toast or a bit of side salad.

Omelet Puff

This is a bit of a spin on the normal omelet recipe what you need to do with this is beat an egg in a cup, once you have done that beat together one tablespoonful of milk, and add some salt to this mixture, fold the egg white into a hot greased frying pan, and place this in the oven until it sets.

While it is still in the frying pan flip it over so it cooks on the other side, to take this recipe one step further you can add some bread crumbs soaked in milk, and add this to the beated yolk, and fold this into the beaten white. And that gives you a bread omelet recipe which makes six in total.

There are lots of other reasons to eat eggs coincidently studies have shown that eggs are an excellent appetite suppressant, they turn on the full signal in your brain.

Try eating eggs for breakfast and then take note how hungry you feel at dinner time you may be surprised at what you find.

    Here’s my diet favorite:

    Microwaved egg whites, with salt and pepper, cooked in a bowl for 2-3 mins. Once cooked, I add a dollop of hummus on top for taste. It’s high protein, low fat and low carb, surprisingly tasty and easy to make.
