Eggs have recently lost their bad rep as a food. It was previously thought to raise cholesterol and contribute to heart problems.However, a whole egg is now regarded as a supremely healthy snack. Gone are the days when we felt we had to shun the yolk and limit ourselves to the whites.
Another great aspect of the egg is that it is extremely versatile. While many may not go beyond the traditional fried, boiled or scrambled, there are several other ways to go. In fact, you could probably whip up several healthy egg-based dished every month. You can find a few ideas below:
1. Healthy Devilled Eggs
Devilled eggs are usually not the healthiest option. You basically collected the yolks from boiled eggs and mash them with mayonnaise, butter, mustard, and seasonings. However, you can easily swap out the butter and mayonnaise for Greek yogurt.
This witch results in half the fat and more protein. If you don’t have any Greek yogurt on hand, try straining some regular yogurt. It would get you that thick consistency you’re looking for. As a result, you get in just 73 calories per egg. Great for breakfast, a snack, or a health-conscious party!

2. Crustless Quiche
Quiches are a great way to use up just about any leftover. Take the remains of a chicken dinner, or a spinach side, and ix it with a few eggs. Add the seasonings of your choice, add cream, maybe cheese, and pour into a crust. However, the crust is usually made from flour, butter, and/or oil. So it’s not the healthiest of choices. Plus, the cream and cheese add to the calorie count and make the quiche a very heavy dish.
The good news is that quiches can taste really good even without their delectable crusts! All you need to do is pour the egg mixture into a greased pan. After you bake it, you can slice it up and serve just like a regular quiche. For single-size servings, silicon cupcake molds are ideal for baking and serving crustless quiches.
The resulting ‘egg cups’ may even be frozen in bulk. You can simply take one out each morning and heat it up for a quick and tasty breakfast on the go.
3. Egg Salad
When we think of egg salad, we usually think of mayonnaise and dressing to go with it. However, this does not have to be the case. As with deviled eggs, you can simply swap the mayonnaise for thick Greek yogurt. Add chives and some boiled potatoes along with boiled eggs.
The result would be a salad that’s not only healthy but filling and delicious. Enjoy it on its own, or use it as a filling for whole-wheat wraps and tacos. If you like the crunch and taste of lettuce, chop some up and add it too.
4. Savory Waffles
When you’re on a diet or following a clean eating plan, waffles may not be a breakfast table. However, you can probably suppress your craving with this savory version that takes your eggs to a whole new level!
For this recipe, you would need cornmeal. You can make this at home with your own corn. Add smoked salmon, which is light and delicate fish with a sweet and salty date. When mixing it all together, use buttermilk to get its nutrients in your body.
After the mixing is done, you can use your waffle iron to bake the mixture and enjoy a healthy treat full of yummy goodness. If there’s no waffle iron on hand, feel free to make some savory pancakes.
Eggs are chock-full of filling and healthy protein. At the same time, they are free of sugar and unhealthy carbohydrates. In fact, a certain nutrient in egg-yolk can actually fight belly fat and a lot of diseases. So get ready to eat those delicious things for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
