5 delicious ways to get more eggs into your daily diet: Muscle-building edition

Now you’re in the mood for eating eggs, let’s look at five delicious ways of getting them into your diet. But first…

Quickfire facts about eggs…

  1. Eating eggs raises your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, which is the ‘good’ cholesterol that lowers the risk of heart disease.
  1. There’s six grams of protein in one standard egg, plus all nine essential amino acids. Pure muscle-boosting power.
  1. Eggs are filling, pretty low in calories, and will give you a solid source of sustainable energy.

Now, back to our eggs-celent tips and ideas. Let’s start with oatmeal.

1. Oatmeal

Oatmeal and fruit

Oatmeal is a popular breakfast choice because it’s filling, it’s satisfying, and you can avoid getting bored by switching up the toppings. 

Adding an egg to your oatmeal will make it thicker, smoother and almost custard-y! We recommend whisking your egg first before adding it to the oat mixture to give the smoothest texture possible.

You’ll want to cook your oatmeal on the stove, and add in your egg at the end once almost all the liquid has been absorbed. 

Once you add the egg, stir the mixture vigorously to ensure that the egg is evenly distributed throughout the oatmeal.  

FYI: This will only work with cooked oatmeal, not overnight oats.

2. Sneaky snacks

Hard boiled eggs

If hunger hits you between meals or you need a quick power-up before a big pump, boiled eggs are an easy on-the-go snack. 

Boiled eggs can last up to seven days in the refrigerator, so if you’re a meal prepper, you can definitely batch-cook and store them with ease. Plus, they’re so portable, you can even put them in your pocket (just remember to keep the shell on if you do). 

Depending on how fiercely you boil them, it can take anywhere from three to seven minutes to make soft-boiled eggs, and six to 10 minutes for a hard-boiled egg.

They’re nutritious and filling as a snack—we like them with a sprinkle of salt and pepper—and a dash of hot sauce.

You can also chop them up and put them into salads or rice for added protein. Oh, and if you want to get really snazzy, you can make egg-stuffed avocados as a delicious, nutritious snack.

3. Soup

Ramen egg and noodle soup

If you sip on bone broth daily, or just like to enjoy soup as a warming starter, you need to make egg drop soup.

Start by making a slurry with some cornstarch to help thicken your soup. 

Add any flavours you’d like to your broth, and then bring it to a boil over a medium heat before adding the cornstarch slurry. 

Lastly, pour in your beaten eggs and stir them into soup. Whether you use the egg whites, egg yolk—or both—the taste will be out of this world. And, it will flood your body with all the nutrients you need both before and after a big workout.

4. Wraps

Egg wraps

Tortilla wraps are tasty and convenient—but they add lots of carbs and not much protein to your meal. An easy swap is to make egg wraps, which are essentially a very a thin omelet.

To make one, beat together two eggs with 15ml of water. Season the mixture with salt and pepper, plus any extra seasonings of your choice.

Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and then pour in your eggs. You might need to move the pan around a little to get a thin, even layer. 

Once the egg is set, remove it from the pan and allow it to cool for a few minutes before assembling your wrap with the extra tastebud-tingling toppings of your choice. Easy.

5. Omelets

Omelet

Okay, this may sound glaringly obvious, but omelets often get overlooked when it comes to quick and easy protein-packed meals.

An omelet goes down like a treat any time of day or evening and if you don’t load yours with too many rich ingredients, it’s light on the stomach, too.

It’s the perfect way to eat eggs when you’re strapped for time. Like we said with our egg drop soup idea—you can use egg whites or add yolks into the mix and it will still taste delicious.

You can notch up the protein power by adding up to seven eggs (you are a beast, after all) as well as goodies including cheese, chorizo, seitan (for those plant-based powerhouses), onions, corn, peppers, spinach, tomatoes…the list goes on.

If you want to eat eggs in a way that’s fun, indulgent, and versatile—the so-called ‘humble omelet’ will always have your back. 

Just whisk up as many eggs as you want, prep your additions, fire up the pan, and get cooking. Egg consumption at its best.

Bonus tips for getting more protein into your diet

In addition to upping your egg consumption, here are a few extra tips for getting extra protein into your no doubt already healthy diet without breaking a sweat.

Start your day right with protein-packed breakfasts

Starting your day with a protein-packed breakfast is a great way to kickstart your morning and fuel your body for the day ahead. Think about adding foods like eggs (of course), Greek yogurt, or protein smoothies into your breakfast routine.

You could blend together some yogurt with fruits and a scoop of protein powder for a delicious and nutritious kickstart to the day. Adding protein to your breakfast can help keep you full and satisfied until your next meal. It will also ensure you hit your daily nutritional targets. You know it makes sense!

Snack smarter with protein-powered options

When it comes to snacks, why not choose options that are not only tasty but also packed with protein? Snacking can be a great opportunity to sneak in some extra protein throughout the day.

Consider keeping convenient protein-rich snacks on hand, like nuts, seeds, Greek yogurt, or cheese sticks. These snacks are easy to grab on the go and can help curb hunger cravings between meals. Simple.

Amp up your meals with lean protein sources

Grilled chicken and salad

When planning your meals, consider weaving in lean protein sources to help meet your daily protein needs. Lean proteins are not only packed with body-boosting goodies, but they’re also versatile—making them perfect for a variety of dishes.

Try adding grilled chicken breast, turkey, fish, tofu, or beans to your salads, stir-fries, sandwiches, or wraps. You can also get creative with additional plant-based protein sources like lentils, chickpeas, or edamame. 

By including lean protein in your meals, you'll not only add flavor and texture but also boost your protein intake effortlessly.
