I personally cannot tell you whether the chicken or the egg was created first, but I can tell you that I like eating eggs. 

I go in phases where I eat them almost daily for a few weeks and then none for the next few or even months. I don’t decide on when those phases start or end, I just lose interest and switch back to tofu. 

I eat my eggs boiled, fried, blanched, baked, scrambled and any other way there is.  

Are Eggs the perfect food? That point can be endlessly argued. Religious beliefs, lifestyle, allergies, liking or disliking them.... However, if your circumstances allow for them, try them.  

I eat eggs cooked 100 ways.  

Here is one of my favorites as it is super quick to prep and cook: 

  • 2 cups egg whites 
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach 
  • 1 handful of tomatoes 
  • Salt and pepper 

Put a little oil or butter into a preheated frying pan. Add the spiced-up egg whites and the veggies, cover it all, and let it cook on low until you like the consistency of the dish. Let it stand for 2-3 more minutes and then flip it upside down on a plate and enjoy your quick and protein loaded meal. 

Egg whites, make a super quick and filling breakfast or, in my case lunch. I buy the whites in a carton to avoid having to throw out the yolks when I don’t want to include them. This dish also adds a lot of value to any gym rat's recipe book because it provides a lot of energy when eaten a few hours before hitting the gym hard.   


Should we eat white or brown eggs? 

I found the below paragraph in a report from Michigan State University. 

I thought this would be the perfect little bit of info we all can benefit from to shed at least some light on the dilemma of buying brown or white eggs. 


According to Michigan State University Extension, egg color is determined by the genetics of the hens. The breed of the hen will indicate what color eggs she will produce. For example, Leghorn chickens lay white eggs while Orpington’s lay brown eggs and Ameraucana produce blue eggs. An Olive Egger, a chicken that lays olive green eggs, is the product of a cross between a hen and rooster that are from a brown egg and a blue egg laying breed. An interesting tip is to look at the chicken’s ear lobes; typically, those with white ear lobes produce white eggs.

And to get back to the very top of today's blog post:  

If you really want to know whether the chicken or the egg existed first, I found another article for you. It's written using simple language, so your children might want to read it as well. And yes, it WILL answer the question.
