Eggs are packed with iron, zinc and phosphorus, which minerals that are vital for your body.

Egg yolks contain more calories and fat but they can be part of a healthy diet.

Eating whole eggs is good for your health because the yolk contains over 90 percent of an eggs calcium and iron and the white contains almost half the egg’s protein. Eggs are an important and versatile ingredient for cooking many dishes because it is packed with nutrients - proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

Here are healthy methods for preparing your favorite egg recipes.

Heat is too high

Scrambled eggs, omelets, and fried eggs should be cooked under low to medium heat. Only switch to high heat when you’re making frizzled fried eggs where you want the edges browned and crunchy.

The Wrong Pan

Preferably, keep one nonstick pan for preparing your egg recipes. It should be kept in pristine condition. Because once the nonstick-coating starts to deteriorate, eggs become glued to the bottom easily.

Over seasoning

Seasoning your egg is not as easy as it looks. It requires constant practice to get the right proportion for different sizes of eggs. Some people add black pepper and other spices when preparing eggs. Just season with care and taste as you go.

Over boiling

Keeping your egg in boiling water for too long, makes it dry out and get rubbery.

Peeling them

Did you know that there is an easy and quick way to peep a hard-boiled egg?. Instead of picking at the shell with your fingertips, peel the egg with the side of your thumb. That way, the shell will glide off a little quicker, without leaving dents from your fingers.

Use butter, not oil

Butter is the best option when it comes to frying eggs. Butter makes the eggs less likely to stick to the pan than oil. Plus, the egg will taste better with butter.

Keeping the pot uncovered

You have been frying eggs the wrong way all this while. Did you know If you don’t cover the pan when frying eggs the yolk won’t set? The top of the eggs become too runny, and the bottom too tough.
