My Latest Healthy Cravings- Eggs, Zucchini & Sweet Potatoes

I go through phases where I get hooked on certain foods and eat them all the time. So I decided to share my healthy cravings with you. Right now its egg salad, zucchini and sweet potatoes.

Eggs: eggs

Why They’re Good: 
If you missed the memo, eggs, whole eggs are good for you! These delicious, protein packed babies are no longer linked to high cholesterol but instead are praised for their nutrient rich yolk linked to beneficial or neutral effects on heart disease. Skipping the yolk mean skipping 6 grams of protein, vitamin A, B12 and more vitamins and minerals (for more on the egg breakdown read this).

How I Eat Them: 

I keep it simple with my egg salad sandwiches; 2 eggs, 2 tbsp mayo, sprinkle of salt and pepper. Pop that on a toasted wholewheat english muffin and you’ve got the energy to make it to dinner.

Egg salad isn’t the only way I eat eggs of course as they are a favorite in my house but it is my latest lunch time go-to. I love eggs all ways and any time of day.

 

Zucchini:zoodles

Why They’re Good: 

Zucchini’s are a popluar low-calorie, low-carb option that are loaded with Vitamin C, A and potassium with many health benefits.

How I Eat Them: 

A very versatile option zucchinis can be used for anything from a noodle substitute to making the most delicious bread/cake you can imagine. My obsession is with zoodles! If you haven’t heard of them it’s spiralized zucchini. I have a cold salad and warm dish recipe along with frying them up as a delicious appetizer. I cut medium slices, dip them in coconut oil, dip in italian bread crumbs (not many stick but just enough) and fry them not too long (1-1.5 min per side) in coconut oil.

Sweet Potatoes:

Why They’re Good: sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a healthier complex carbohydrate option than your typical potato. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A, C and B6 among other vitamins and minerals.

How I Eat Them: 

I love just cutting them up and baking or barbecuing them with a little salt or a little cinnamon.
