Alternative to Eating Eggs

p1010428

Today on OiB I will take about different alternatives to eggs. If you are a person who just cannot do it with eggs, then this article is truly the best for you. Eggs are no doubt very rich in proteins and they have such power and energy that there is actually no substitute for them. Still, I have often been asked how organic can actually be beautiful if one doesn’t want to have eggs.

There is a simple answer to that. What I have found out is that it all takes for you to know what eggs contain. You can then make up for all these things that an egg provides with intakes of different things that are rich in the same. There are three types of people who cannot have eggs

  • People who are allergic to eggs
  • People who just don’t like the smell or taste of eggs
  • Vegetarians who do not want eggs to constitute their meals

Let me first tell you what eggs contains in them. Eggs are known to be important because they have too many benefits just through one simple egg. You can make up for them by eating multiple things but you can’t find all that in one simple ingredient.

  • Eggs contain lots of proteins
  • They can be had in different quantities and do not result in causing any heart diseases.
  • They have such contents that in fact raise the good cholesterol in the body
  • They are rich in too many antioxidants
  • They have lots of vitamins, minerals and good fats in them
  • Eggs also have iron, phosphorus, selenium and choline which is important for the brain
  • They help to lose weight too

I have substituted all these with different essential ingredients. If you are looking for its substitute in taste, then make sure you try the commercial egg replacer from stores. On the other hand, for gaining health benefits I normally eat the following or replace it when I am in no mood to have an egg.

  • I replace each egg for mashed potatoes if I need to bind a cutlet, loaf or a burger
  • I make crispy tofu to have an egg-less salad
  • If the egg is used for adding moisture to any recipe, I add in ¼ cup banana puree for each egg asked for. Even apple sauce, vegan sour cream, and pumpkin can be used for the sweetness
  • For baking, I make sure that agar powder is used instead of egg whites or soda is used for cake mixes

For people who need to eat things that can in any way replace some of the health provided by eggs. They can include the following in their diet

  • Lean meat is the best option and the number one to provide many essential proteins.
  • Fish is a game changer for iron sources that make up for eggs beautifully

There are many other techniques as well. If you want to know more or have any of your own, let me be obliged by your comments below.

Nature has provided us with various beneficial organic gifts. Chives are one of them. Chives is the world’s most commonly used herb. Its origins were traced from the land of Asia. It can also be found in some parts of Europe. It is a low profile herb, which means that not a lot of people know about it. It is available any time of the year in markets.

Chives are also used for garnishing. Besides of its being beneficial in the kitchen, it is also best known for its therapeutic values which help in fighting common illnesses and infections.

Because of various benefits of chives, people are showing interest in growing chives at home. It is a good thing as growing chives is  relatively easy and can be done even if you have basic gardening skills. In a backyard garden, chives can be grown along with the other herbs in one bed.

Plant Based Diet | www.OrganicIsBeautiful

Let food be my medicine. Plant based diet food.

Ah, so you are finally back. Well, let us see what we have today on OiB. I’m going to share with you a secret or more perhaps, which I have not told anybody before.

How to use organic products and get glowing skin?

Now food items what you eat everyday can make you put on weight. Though you do not realize it, you put on those unwanted kilos that can ruin the beauty of your skin and health. Meat products, flour, fried foods make you gain weight. Foods made from nature don’t as they do not contain saturated fat, have tons of fiber, and are low on calories.

Very briefly I will discuss the DIY recipes.

  • Whole-wheat pasta
    Food of pasta, then go ahead. All you need to do is alter the garnish and ingredients. When serving the pasta, avoid sauce. Instead, make use of olive oil, onions, garlic, diced kale, diced tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, fresh basil, and oregano.
  • Smoothies – Smoothies are extremely easy to make. All you need to do is take some soy milk and almond with frozen berries. Just blend them all and you have one powerful juice in one drink!
  • Foods to be avoided are meat, milk, rice, and too much of potatoes. These are not for your skin and your weight. Unless you avoid them, you cannot expect good skin.

Here is a small tip when you want to keep your skin looking fresh. You will want to drink water and avoid coffee at all cost. Tea in the mornings or red wine in the evenings is fine.

These products are safe because they come with plenty of nutrients including vitamins and antioxidants that provide what your skin actually requires. When they are in their natural form, they tend to get easily absorbed and that explains why they give better results. Other products found in the market, do not provide the results with you want.

They have proved beneficial in solving problems I earlier faced like wrinkles, acne, stretch marks, dryness, sun damage, and others. The recipes are extremely simple. It is all about going natural. You are not only helping your skin glow, but enabling the environment to stay cleaner using fresh products.

As you can see, with simple ingredients like salt, pepper, yogurt, and spices, you can just about create several dishes. You do not have to feel bad about eating plant based foods as they are good for your health and skin.

There is no doubt that natural skincare is the best. Do you want to choose natural skin products today and benefit like me?
