2 Eggs for Breakfast Can Help You Lose Weight

2 eggs have 180 calories and 14 grams of protein. They also contain Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B2, selenium, and many other vitamins and minerals. Eating eggs for breakfast will keep you full for a long time and prevent you from overeating throughout the day, which makes them one of the best breakfast options.

This is especially true if you’re watching your weight or want to shed some pounds. The great thing about eggs is that you can make them in many different ways and they are all equally delicious. If you don’t like scrambled eggs, you can boil them; if you don’t really like boiled eggs, try poaching them. Another great idea is to mix your eggs with vegetables, so you can make a spinach omelet or a vegetable frittata and always have something different for breakfast.

Chickpea pancake (socca) with curried crispy chickpeas, fried egg, sauteéd garlicky pea shoots, dressed with lots of lemon and olive oil. Satisfying enough for lunch or dinner, or even as a savory breakfast dish. __________________ Chickpeas: drain and rinse a 15 oz. can of chickpeas. Pat dry and toss with salt and 1 tsp of curry powder. In a carbon steel pan, heat up some olive oil on med-low, add the chickpeas, and cook for about 10+ min, tossing occasionally, adding more oil if needed. Cook the chickpeas low and slow so they dry and crisp up a bit without burning. Meanwhile, sauté some pea shoots (or your favorite greens) with a minced garlic and make the chickpea pancakes. __________________ Chickpea pancake, slightly adapted from @moroccochris’s recipe (makes 2): Whisk ½ cup chickpea flour with ½ tsp. turmeric + curry powder each, ½ cup water, and 1 Tbsp olive oil. Let sit for at least 15 minutes. Heat olive oil over med-high in a nonstick or cast iron pan, add half of the pancake batter and tilt skillet so it spreads out into a relatively thin pancake. Cook until golden underneath, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip and cook the other side for about a minute more. Transfer to a serving plate and repeat with the remaining batter. __________________ When chickpeas are golden and somewhat crisped, top onto the chickpea pancakes, add on the sautéed pea shoots, pea shoot fronds, scallion, fried egg, drizzle on with lots of lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt + pepper and chili pepper flakes.
