As Mother’s Day approaches, I want to remember my Mom with a recipe that is perfect for Mother’s Day brunch and review some reassuring research about eggs, “Nature’s perfect protein”. First, the much-maligned egg has been vindicated (once again), this time by an Australian study just published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Move over bagel, there’s a new schmear in town. This low-carb twist on the traditional “lox and bagel with cream cheese” has all the flavor, with none of the allergens and empty carbs. Just trade the bagel and cream cheese for crisp rice crackers and creamy avocado. The smoked salmon delivers ~15 grams of protein with a dose of essential fatty acids to reduce inflammation and create soft skin.
In this ideal breakfast for busy workday morning, two perfect “6-minute” soft-boiled eggs mingle with creamy avocado and chunky salsa on a bed of arugula. While you’re making tea and checking email, the eggs are boiling and in less than 15 minutes, you’ll devour 12 grams of protein and 2 servings of vegetables before you’re out the door!
