There are beautifully elegant and time-consuming ways to serve smoked salmon, one of our favorites is with asparagus mousse. Then there are days where a full ten minutes to cook a meal is a rarity. Who has time to set a fancy feast on the table when you are rushing to and from the obligations of life? Well, now you can put a high-protein meal on your breakfast plate and make it anywhere you need to be, on time. If you can spare 10 minutes to scramble half a dozen eggs for two, then this delicious meal is for you.
It is likely that your Paleo pantry always has a stock of free-range eggs, after all, they are nature’s wonder food. Packed in their own shell and ready to eat in the time it takes to crack them into a hot frying pan. While chicken eggs generally take center stage, it is important to eat diversely and look at the benefits of eggs laid by other birds. Duck eggs are rich in phosphorus, selenium and Vitamins A, B9 and B12. Quail eggs (though smaller in size) are higher in iron, B12, and folate than chicken eggs. Flavor-wise, all eggs taste slightly different. It depends on the bird, just as much as it depends on what the bird is eating.
A Paleo way of life is all about eating the best possible food available. The challenge for you is to inform yourself wisely and seek top quality for every bite.
