Due to my increased level of exercising, I get hungry very often recently. When I get hungry, I crave carbs. I would eat so much bread, pasta, and rice that it's scary. However, to really subside the hunger, protein is the answer. Unfortunately, I'm not much of a meat eater. More accurately, I have no problem with eating meat...I just don't cook meat if given a choice. This means eggs are my friend, my very trusty good friend.
I love hard-boiled or soft-boiled eggs. Unlike scrambled eggs or fried eggs, just one and it is enough to be quite filling. It is egg at its purest. I like them plain without any salt or seasoning. Without the need for any supervision, it is dead simple to make. I don't even need oil for cooking! This is my prefer way to enjoy eggs for breakfast (or anytime of the day, for that matter). According to the Egg Farmer Association in Canada, eating an egg for breakfast is a great way to curb mid-afternoon snacking because of the staying power of protein. I think I should get back in the habit of eating a boiled egg a few days per week. My current diet is sort of messed up with too much emphasis on carbs, fruits, vegetables, and legumes. The website also mentioned that eggs are complete protein meaning they contain all 9 amino acids. I think it would be a great supplement to my current diet to make it more balance.
