10 Tips for Healthy Eating: How to Beat the Boiled Eggs
Posted August 28, 2018 09:18:03A recent study published in the journal PLOS ONE found that, in general, Americans have an unhealthy tendency toward boiled red potato, which is also known as boiled eggs.
But there are a few tricks to be learned when it comes to boiling eggs.
If you’ve ever tried to boil eggs, you know how difficult they can be.
You’ve probably boiled the egg at least a couple of times.
What about boiled red or white potatoes?
According to the study, boiled red and white potatoes contain less calories than boiled egg, which may be why they have been the go-to vegetable for decades.
But, you may not be aware that boiled red eggs also contain a bit of fat, which can make them even more unhealthy.
So, here are the 10 tips for eating boiled eggs that will keep you from getting sick.
Avoid the Boiling Eggs!
According to a study published by the International Journal of Obesity and Metabolism, boiled eggs are often eaten as snacks or as a side dish, not the main course of a meal.
The researchers conducted a study in which they found that the average American consumes about one-third of the calories in boiled eggs, but consumed only one-fourth of the fat.
If the amount of fat is such that it makes you crave the other ingredients, you’re more likely to eat the boiled eggs over the other.
Make your Eggs Healthy!
As you can see from the infographic above, boiled egg calories are usually around 3,000 calories per ounce, while the typical American egg contains around 2,400 calories per tablespoon.
To avoid this, make sure your eggs are not overcooked.
When it comes time to cook them, be sure to put the eggs in the oven, which has a higher temperature.
The amount of oil in a boiled egg is what makes it a healthy vegetable, not just a salad, according to the researchers.
The study found that people who had boiled eggs were able to consume around half the calories of those who did not.
The flavor of the eggs can help balance out the calories.
Use a Cooking Method That’s High in Protein and Fiber!
The researchers found that boiled eggs contained more than 50 percent protein and less than half the fiber of boiled white eggs.
To maximize the amount you get from your eggs, make them with a high-protein, high-fiber recipe, which will result in a more balanced meal.
When you’re preparing your eggs for cooking, you need to prepare them in the proper way, according the researchers from the International Obesity and Diabetes Association.
This includes using a pre-measured serving size of 1,000 to 1,500 calories, which gives you the ability to include more than 2 teaspoons of fat per serving.
When preparing for cooking in the microwave, the amount will be about 1 teaspoon of fat.
The ideal size of a serving size is 3 to 5 tablespoons.
Keep your Eggs Cool!
When it’s time to serve your boiled eggs in a skillet, keep the heat on medium.
When you are ready to eat them, add a bit more water, if needed, to keep the eggs from burning.
Use an Egg Wash!
The scientists from the IADA recommended using a water-based egg wash, which reduces the amount that can stick to the shell.
Try Some Spicy Ingredients!
While not recommended by the researchers, boiling eggs with peppers, tomatoes, garlic, onion, or a variety of spices will increase the amount and flavor of flavor.
Avoid Using Water in the Egg Wash Method.
The IADAA recommends using boiling water for the egg wash because it’s better to keep your eggs cool.
If it’s not possible to boil the egg, then you may want to use a liquid egg wash method.
Serve Your Egg Wash Fresh!
If you’re cooking eggs for dinner or eating them on a salad plate, serve them with fresh herbs, such as basil, thyme, and oregano.
