Competition and 10 paleo-friendly egg recipes

The Paleo Diet is all the rage at the moment and so is the 5:2 Diet, which quite a few of my friends are having great success with, and looking at the pictures that they share online, there’s one super-food which they’re all turning to when it comes to healthy eating. There are poached or scrambled eggs for breakfast, boiled eggs with salad for lunch and a variety of omelettes for dinner. But what makes eggs so popular with those trying to lose weight?

There are only around 70 calories in an egg, depending on its size and the yolk of the egg is full of nutritious goodness as it includes all the essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs. The way you prepare your eggs obviously affect how healthy they are. Eggs fried in fat will always have more calories than a boiled egg, but if you look out for these hidden diet traps and combine your egg dishes with vegetable sides, salads or whole grains, they can be a great low-calorie meal option full of protein, vitamins and healthy fats.

Here are 10 great paleo-friendly egg recipes that I have found on the internet. I hope you enjoy them: 10 paleo-friendly egg recipes

    I love Eggs Benedict. Although, due to the amount of butter in the hollandaise sauce, I don’t eat it very often.

    marmite on toast covered with spinach and scrambled eggs .. topped with a nob of marg and salt and pepper :) maybe a little cayenne.

  4. Alice Matthews says

    I like to bake a portobello mushroom in the oven and crack an egg into the hollow to cook. I top this with fresh basil and maldon sea salt and its is very good, especially served with a couple of grilled tomatoes.

  5. Jen Smith says

    I’ll definitely try some of the alternative pancake recipe as they are my sons favourite breakfast :)

  6. Lorraine Tinsley says

    I love a red onion and cheese omelette, my daughter is less sophisticated and loves a ham omelette with baked beans :)

  7. Gilla01 says

    Omelettes – preferably with grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, chopped bacon, chopped mushrooms – slightly undercooked so that they are nice and creamy. Lots of crusty bread to mop everything up.

  8. Hilda Hazel Wright says

    I love mushroom omlettes but my favourite is plain old boiled egg butties with mustard!

  9. olivia Kirby says

    I absolutely love Gordon Ramsey’s scrambled egg recipe. I also love poached eggs, and eggs cooked in half an avocado!

  12. Alison Drew says

    Oh it has to be omelettes, so many variations. Either make the family favourites or use up any surplus items in the fridge!

  13. Jade Vine says

    Mexican butter bean hash. A healthy filling breakfast with a yummy runny egg right in the middle.

  14. Sarah Bates says

    Rocket salad with salami, pepperoni, chorizo bacon and new pots. With a poached egg on top and balsamic vinegar. YUM!
