If you’re trying to bulk up, eggs are one type of food that should be your new best friend! Bodybuilders may eat as many as 6 eggs in a meal for the calories. They’re packed with proteins, vitamins, and minerals to help you recover and take full advantage of your workouts! Another benefit of eggs is how easily you can cook and eat them in a variety of different ways to avoid getting tired of them.
The following are probably the quickest ways to prepare eggs:
How: Crack a few eggs into a bowl; add a splash of milk, salt and pepper. Wisk, and pour into a fry pan. Add cheese and additional toppings if you wish. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it isn’t runny.
2. Breakfast sandwich
How: Scramble eggs, and then place inside of a toasted english muffin or bagel. Toppings can be put inside the scramble or on top of the eggs during sandwich assembly.
3. Hard boiled
How: To make hard boiled eggs, fill a pot with water and place eggs (still in their shell) in the pot (make sure they’re covered with water). Bring to a boil. I like to continue boiling my eggs for another 12 minutes. Peel, slice in half long-ways, top with a little salt, and enjoy!
Quick tip: Hard boil your eggs in advance, and slice them in half when you need a quick snack!
How: Hard boil your eggs; after you slice them in half, empty the yokes into a bowl (they pop out easily if you start to turn them inside out). If there are any eggs that didn’t peel well or broke, add them to the bowl, along with some mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and dried parsley. Stir until smooth and spoon the mixture evenly into the egg whites. Top with paprika and serve!
How: Crack a few eggs into a bowl, add salt and pepper, wisk, and then pour into a fry pan. Add cheese and other topics to your liking, such as red/green peppers, sausage, spinach, etc. Cook on medium-low heat until set.
To squeeze extra eggs into your diet, try eating an omelette or sandwich for breakfast, and then eat deviled or hard boiled eggs as snacks throughout the day!
Consuming eggs on a regular basis will give your body the nutrients and energy it needs to perform at its best and bulk up!
