5 Healthy Recipes that Aren’t a Salad

Getting ready for summer doesn’t mean you have to give up delicious food for leafy greens.  Eggland’s Best eggs will help cut down calories, lower saturated fat and add in extra nutrients in your dishes. Eggland’s Best eggs (when compared to ordinary eggs) have more than double the Omega-3s, 6x more Vitamin D, and 10x more Vitamin E (just to name a few). To help you get a jump start on preparing healthier dishes, we put together 5 recipes that will leave you happy and satisfied instead of wishing your salad were tacos. 

Baked Eggs & Avocados

Subtract the carbs and add in the healthy fats! Switch your classic “egg in a hole” to “egg in an avocado”. Sprinkle with some added ingredients like chopped tomatoes or low-fat shredded cheese. 


Zucchini Muffins

Dessert for breakfast? We’re not sure if this logic holds up, but they’re made with zucchini… So, why not?


Egg Cup Lentil Bowl 

Heart-healthy and low calorie…. Are we talking about EB eggs again?! This dish combines lentils and EB eggs for the ultimate power couple in nutrition.


Sweet Potato and Turkey Frittata

Frittatas are our favorite breakfast for dinner dish? Add sweet potatoes (which have 2x more fiber than white potatoes) and a lean protein like turkey make this a more filling meal for your family.

Vegetable Shakshuka

Shakshuka itself is a healthy vegetarian recipe that’s so easy to make. Take it a step further and add in some vegetables for an added crunch and a nutritious punch!



But if you still believe salads are the only way…  at least put an EB egg on top for an omega-3 boost.
