Eggs are filled with cholesterol and substances that are more harmful to your health than beneficial. Eggs are very difficult to digest and if I start telling you all the diseases they could carry, we would never finish.
My plan for those of you out there that are not vegetarians yet is to at least, try to stop eating eggs in their integral form – not fried, not scrambled, not poached, not in a traditional Spanish tortilla, not in an omelet – not even the whites.
To replace all these forms of traditionally eating eggs, there are plenty of much healthier alternatives and some of them even with fewer calories:
|Instead of Making:||You’ll prepare:|
|Scrambles||Tofu Scrambler – it’s a mixture you add to tofu and it’s available at most health food stores|
|Spanish Tortilla||Make the tortilla using cheese or other egg-free alternatives. Here are my recipes for Tortilla Espanola|
|Potato Salad||Make the same potato salad with egg-free mayonnaise and without the boiled eggs. It’ll taste just the same…|
|Breakfasts||Eat oatmeal, hot or cold cereals, fresh fruits, toasts…|
But just because you’ve decided to not eat eggs anymore, the world will not stop turning. Here you’ll find several dishes traditionally made with eggs, you still can enjoy just making them a little bit differently:
