About This Breakfast Stir-Fry
This breakfast stir-fry is a flavorful breakfast that packs a ton of nutrition.
There are benefits of eating your vegetables with eggs. The egg yolks are a good source of fat. Combining the eggs and the vegetables increases the absorption of carotenoids.
Carotenoids are pigments found in plants that make plants or vegetables, red, yellow or orange. They can help protect a person’s immune system, prevent diseases like cancer, and are changed into Vitamin A which is extremely important for growth and eye health.
Not to mention, this is an incredibly easy and delicious recipe.
Are Eggs Gluten-free?
Yes! All whole eggs are gluten-free.
There is a myth that if the chickens eat gluten containing grains in their feed that they will transfer gluten into your eggs. However, gluten is a plant-based protein and when consumed by animals is broken down and absorbed as amino acids that are used to build other proteins in the body. However, these amino acids are never used to build gluten again in animals.
Additionally, some are concerned about the cross-contact of gluten from chicken feet to the shell. If you are buying your eggs in the united states, all eggs in stores must be washed. It is the law, so the gluten would be washed off.
If you’re raising your own hens or getting eggs from people raising their own chickens, be sure to wash your eggs before using them and you should be fine.
That being said, do what you are most comfortable doing. You know your body best.
Can You Freeze Eggs?
Have you ever bought too many eggs and worried about how you are going to eat them all? Well, you could make a giant omelette or you can freeze them.
You can cook eggs and freeze them for about 2 to 3 months. Which means you could cook double or triple this recipe and freeze it for reheat-able breakfasts in the upcoming months.
Or you can freeze your over abundance of eggs raw for about a year. To freeze raw eggs, crack them into a muffin tin and mix the yolk and egg white together, place 1 teaspoon of sugar or salt depending on what you are going to use the eggs for. Put it in the freezer. Once frozen, put them in a ziploc bag to use for later.
