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.

Here are five must-have nature spices inside your kitchen:

Turmeric

Turmeric is an Indian product and has been in their cooking for several thousand years. It comes with several properties like decreases the fat, purifies blood and heals wounds and bruises. It needs to be added to boiled milk, curry dishes, and vegetables.

Asafetida

Asafetida comes in the form of granules and you can use a pinch of asafetida. This can be used in water, broth, and ghee, when you are cooking. It mainly helps in reducing indigestion problems, fullness, and heavy gas after eating food.

Cumin

Cumin is another popular ingredient which immensely helps in aiding digestion. It helps in removing pain in the abdomen, remove heaviness in the stomach. It can be added to soup, rice, and lentils.

Coriander

Coriander leaves are excellent spices to be used when cooking. It is used as a garnish. They are commonly found in seeds or ground form. It immensely helps in removing tiredness, exhaustion, headaches, and pain in muscles.

You will want to add some during cooking in curries, vegetable fries, and lentils.

Ginger

Ginger is a very versatile food ingredient. It can be used in healing fever, colds, coughs, and indigestion. The benefits are too many. Apart from that, it also improves the blood circulation and reduces inflammation. You can add it in your food as a spice or as dry powder.

When added to soups or vegetable curries, it enhances the flavor to another level. You can prepare so many DIY dishes using these ingredients.

All of the above are enough to tell you why you must use organic products. They not only give you the best care for your hair, but do not come with harmful chemicals. This is one of the main reasons why I always use hair care products made from natural ingredients. It has helped me in achieving the hair of my dreams.

Why those 2 ingredients?

Lemon?

Lemon is a strong antibacterial to nourish and clean your skin at the same time. Oh Yes. It is also ideal for boosting your immune system as you can drink with water in the morning . I usually do it after applying my usual skincare lotion. At the moment, it is Eucalyptus based!

Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

MATCHA ZOATS

If the title of this recipe – Matcha Zoats- makes absolutely no sense don’t worry, I will explain all.

If you already know what I’m referring to then prepare yourself to get excited about this healthy and delicious breakfast.

Matcha

Matcha is made from ground Japanese green tea leaves. You may remember my earlier article of green tea powder in your skin routine here. When you eat the whole leaf, it makes it higher in nutrients and anti-oxidants than if the tea was brewed.

Yes, I hear you… Sounds almost to good to be true. Keep reading below 😉

Why should you use it? One it tastes good. But two, studies have linked the consumption of green tea to reduced risk of some cancers, boosted immunity, raised metabolism and fast recovery after exercise. That sounds like a pretty good list of the benefits of matcha to me.

Matcha can be a bit pricey but it’s worth the investment because, trust me, one tin will last you for ages.

Zoats

Zoats stands for zucchini (a.k.a. courgette) oats.  I love adding grated veggies to porridge because it really fills up the bowl and makes for a satisfying breakfast. Its super simple to do and helps you to sneak in an extra portion on veg!

  4. Transfer to a bowl and top with your chopped fruit.

→ Did you know? A cup of matcha tea contains about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Best is to make this oatmeal recipe for breakfast and avoid caffeine later in the day.

Have you used matcha before?
