  • What's as good as eggs?

    I don't like eggs very much. Annoying, because they're so handy, so easy, so fast and so Primal. I've been making myself eat them at least a couple of times a week but it's almost like taking medicine - fairly high on the 'yuck' scale.

    Tell me I don't need eggs - that there are other yummy Primal foods that supply the same nutrients & goodies.

        Are you saying you don't even like hard boiled eggs cut up in a salad?
        You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

          Yup and folate. I thought brains had a lot of folate but that's like the one things they don't have. Liver to the rescue!

            That's mostly how I've been eating them but no, I much prefer my salads eggless.

            Love liver & onions! Goody, I'll cook that more often. I've never tried brains, but hell, millions of zombies can't be wrong, I'll have to search out a butcher who sells them. Thanks!

                If you've been eating them hard-boiled, maybe you could try cooking them a different way? I hate hard-boiled eggs too (texture/taste is just unappealing), but omelettes are fantastic, and there's lots of room for tweaking

                  Frittata. Anyone who is paleo ought to learn how to make frittatas. It's a great way to use egg to deliver lots of other, tastier foods.

                    I make mini frittatas in muffin tins. I just grab one on the way to work. It makes it easier to get veg in there which I wouldn't if I had to take the time to cook them every morning.

                      Cook eggs into other things where you won't notice them as much rather than having them as obvious egg bits.

                        We make the egg muffin recipe in the PB cookbook quite a bit. Tasty, easy, and you can make a batch and nuke them in the morning for breakfast.

                          This. I get kinda fed up with plain eggs. As a kid I HATED eggs and would only eat them scrambled with cheese. Or just the yolk, runny. Hmmm, I must have wanted to go primal then . . . Anyhow, I like to saute some onions in bacon grease then scramble the eggs into them. If you're kinda lazy you can buy frozen, chopped peppers and onions. Spinach too. Heat up a fat of your choice then add a bit of garlic, then veggies, then eggs.

                            If you're looking for something as fast, convenient, and satisfying as HB eggs, you might try kippered herring or sardines. Easy and tasty. Not quite the same, nutritionally, obviously -- but excellent food.

                              The only way to get all the nutritional value from an egg is to cook the white and leave the yolk runny or completely uncooked and raw. Cooking the yolk kills nutrients and if the white is not cooked the enzyme inhibitors in it can prevent absorption of all the goodies in the yolk(for those that had been throwing the whole egg in your mixer-I was). You also don't want to cook the white any more than it takes to just make it white. Over cooking the white, just like overcooking anything, creates more AGEs(advanced glycation end products), which may contribute to age related diseases(i.e. diabetes and autoimmune) by causing glycation which further causes the crosslinking of proteins that stiffens tissues over time. Of course glycation is a normal process that we can't avoid, we should be doing what we can to minimize it.
