Butternut Squash Nests

Would you call me crazy if I said I use to dislike eggs? I also refused to eat any eggs that were runny. I only ate simple hardboiled eggs. Well, I’m glad that changed around because I like my eggs runny – YES I DO. I like them poached, scrambled, fried, hardboiled, etc.

Eggs are a complete protein! One large whole egg contain all nine essential amino acids. We can’t make these nine essential amino acids, so it’s ESSENTIAL we get them from foods we eat or by taking supplements. I strongly prioritize a food approach to get all our nutrients. In addition, we get about 6 grams of protein per egg. This recipe is a great nutrient packed breakfast!

Also, I’m a huge fan of runny eggs now, so you bet I LOVED it!
