I’ve Got Eggs (And I Know How To Use ‘Em) [#WIAW]

by Sarah on April 10, 2013 · 28 comments

It started out as a simple flirtation.

OK. That’s a lie.

It started out as a full-on orGGy.

it was easier than making a commitment to any one egg.

But then I got all embarrassed and worried about my reputation.

i've got legGs. and i know how to use them.

I took a step back, unsure of how to proceed.

Could our relationship be saved?

 Forced to work together on a blend -inspired science project–

pumpkin pie microwave muffin w. bananas, honey, raisins, pecans

Brittany’s microwave muffins

cinnamon muffin w. previously frozen raspberries and dark chocolate sea salt kind bar crumblies

….weren’t going to reinvent themselves

apple pie microwave muffin with more apples, honey, dates, pecans

–I still maintained a detached distance.

Yet one experiment naturally led to another.

carrot cake crust made with egg whites...topped with avocado sauce and pomegranate seeds

Pretty soon, I wanted a pancake.

giant coc-oat-nut protein pancake w. pineapple chobani frosting, bananas, raspberry protein whipped cream, sprinkles. and pecans

A very large, giant pancake.

buckwheat coc-oat-nut protein pancake with papaya, strawberries, sprinkle of cinnamon, drizzle of kefir

Flax eggs are good, but they don’t create the same…fluff.

And then I stumbled upon very special visitors

on sale...what? what?

from my favorite foreign land.

that would be austin.

I hate to say it, Jenn, and all of you other yolk-els…

…but finally I said screw the reputation.

kabocha, brussells sprouts, tomato sauce toast, egg

Bring on the porn.

Yolk pornthat is.

fried egg on (vegan) 'cheesy' brown rice and veggie scramble

What kind of girl do you think I am? :)

You make really lovely fried eggs (with excellent yolk porn!). Hope you are enjoying the new addition in your diet! Eggs are one of my favorites foods–so simple, so versatile, so tasty :-)

I LOVE using the liquid eggs and whites. For me on Weight Watchers, a half cup of the regular eggs is 2 Points and a half cup of the whites is 0 Points. I add some spinach or broccoli and I have a huge breakfast for only 2 Points. I love it!

Never mind about your reputation – who cares what “the people” think in anway, right ;) ?! See, I’ve borrowed your vegan with benefits label for myself. And while eggs won’t make it back into my diet anytime soon I’ve been bonding with Greek yogurt big time again lately, too. Yes, I’m still feeling a bit bad about it but I’ve been more satisfied with it so I’ll go with the flow on this one.
By the way: Feel free to send me any leftover kabocha you have ;) . So hard to find around here.

ha this post was an interesting version of WIAW! I love eggs in oatmeal or dippy as a sauce for veggies. I have never been able to successfully poach an egg.

Hahah you’re adorable, Sarah. I’m still not super into eggs, but Alex did make a pretty epic omeltte for easter brunch, and that might have won me over!

this post made me giggle. I’ve got eggggs. and I know how to use them.

fun fact: the drummer from ZZ top’s last name is “Beard” and he is the only beardless man in the band.

Yay!!! Yolk porn is where it’s AT! I love microwave cakes too – I make my chocolate or carrot cake on nearly every day.

That song is going to be stuck in my head all day. Thanks for that. :P

I just tried my first farm-fresh eggs this week, and they were amazing! We’ve been buying high quality, organic eggs, but these were still a notch better. Local and fresh–you could taste a difference. And now I have a renewed desire for eggs!

Oddly enough, I didn’t like eggs (at all) until about two years ago. Now, I go through a dozen a week, but will only eat them scrambled with ketchup.

Yolk makes me queasy and yes, I realize that means there is something wrong with me.

I agree that flax eggs don’t have the fluff, but enerG is good at helping with that. BUT – I am glad you are enjoying eggs either way!! :)

Free at last. Thank God Almighty free at last.

I’m thrilled to see your yolk porn (that’s not awkward at all), and have no fear my friend, those eggs (the real deal anyway) can’t hurt you. In fact, all the nutrients are in the yolk, and they’ve long since put to rest their false and unsavory image. I say ditch the boxes and eat the eggs.

But you tell me, was it good for you?

Reply

Sarah April 12, 2013 at 1:00 pm

It was (and has been) Meg-Ryan-in-the-diner-in-When-Harry-Met-Sally good for me. :)

[And I only use the boxed ones for baking since they are just easier to deal with when throwing together single-serve pancakes or microwave muffins. Otherwise I stick with the 'real deal.']

Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets April 13, 2013 at 9:09 am

Now that is good with a capital O. I’m happy to hear it. ;)

You’re bring yolk porn back. Them other eggies (boxed) don’t how to act.

Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body April 10, 2013 at 9:08 pm

Haha this post made me chuckle, love it! As much as I use egg whites to add extra, I still love me my yolks, especially when hard boiled!!

If you ever come visit again – we’re going to a Korean place that puts an egg right on top of the hot bowl of veges – I just adore that dish. Egg porn – so funny!

Reply

Sarah April 12, 2013 at 12:59 pm

Is that BiBimBop or something like that? I’ve HEARD about it, and always wanted to try it. I’ve never been to a Korean restaurant, either, but people tell me they are really fun in the way that food is served in bunches of different bowls with lots of toppings…

OK, when can I come visit? [And when will you come visit me?!]

Brittany @ Delights and Delectables April 13, 2013 at 7:18 pm

I love that you are loving eggs!!! I still can’t do a runny egg…AND I’m dying for that pancake recipe!!

Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli April 20, 2013 at 7:19 pm

YESSSSSS! Bring ON that porn, mama!! LOVE…IT!! Seriously, is there anything better than a runny yolk?!

And I LOVE what you did to Jenn’s button! I literally cracked up as I was forced to say it out loud before it clicked…EGG-tra! Hahaha! Oh, and now you’ve brought back my childhood desire to raise baby chicks!

“Flax eggs are good, but they don’t create the same…fluff.” <- AMEN!!
