Go To Work On An Egg! Easy Way To Poach Eggs
Whether you are trying to lose weight, stop snacking, eat healthier or just feel better when you leave the house, you can’t beat an egg for breakfast! Talking of beating… you should try scrambling, boiling or poaching them instead of frying if you want to have a healthy start. They are a great source of nutrients and when poached or boiled are relatively low in calories (75kcals each if boiled / poached). Containing iron and calcium they’ve got a lot going for them, why not have a glass of fruit juice with your eggs to bump up your five a day at the same time! If you’re boiling them having wholemeal bread for the “soldiers” is another healthy option and if you’re keen on keeping the fats even lower use a spread such as marmite instead of butter on the soldiers.
They are one of the best ways to get some of the highest-quality protein in your body, and although perhaps not normally associated with dieting, it’s this protein that stops you feeling hungry later in the day. Protein really does blunt your hunger, meaning fewer (or no) snacks throughout the morning, because you’ll feel fuller for longer. Not only does that mean you’ll feel better, but you’ll consumer fewer calories too! So what’s the best way of getting this breakfast boost?
Don’t reach for the frying pan! The healthiest and quickest method of cooking them is to poach them. But how to poach an egg? What is the best method? Well, brand new to the Kitchen Range are these Pack of 20 Caraselle Poachies Egg-Poaching Bags.
