Happy World EGG Day!

If you like eggs--and even if you don't--these recipes are a must-see (after all, today is World Egg Day!).


Eggs are excellent go-to sources of high-quality protein, as you know--that's one of the aims of World Egg Day, by the way: to celebrate eggs for their potential to feed people around the globe. They're also filled with good stuff like riboflavin, folate, vitamins B6, B12, lutein--ingredients that are great for helping you build muscle and keep your vision sharp. Plus, eating them for breakfast may even aid in weight loss: studies have found that eating eggs for breakfast can keep you feeling fuller, longer, than carbs.

Of course, eating eggs when they're drowned in butter, cream, cheese, or--yep!--bacon kind of nixes all of those benefits (super-cheesy quiche need not apply. Bummer!).
Anyway, I was excited to find these egg recipes--tasty and healthified! Tell me what you think:
Traditional Eggs Benedict is yummy, for sure, but also super-rich. An Eggs Benedict salad, on the other hand...

These scrambled eggs are filled with garlic, spinach, and broccoli--love the Cojita cheese on top, too!

These crustless quiches in cups are too cute! They're also partially made with egg whites, plus part-skim mozzarella, and broccoli.

This tortilla is baked, then filled with beans, avocado, and peppers--and eggs, of course.

I'm so intrigued by these egg white puffs! They have protein powder, a little sweetener, and cinnamon (I've also seen some versions that have peanut butter, and others with cheese).

Ooh, and these mini frittatas--made in a muffin tin--have more egg whites than they do whole eggs, plus zucchini, spinach, onion, feta, and parmesan.
