Do you ever have it when you can’t stop craving a certain type of food? I’m guessing this isn’t an uncommon thing. I know it happens to me a lo [I used to eat carrot and coriander soup like every day]. I just get a type of food in my head and I just want to eat it with every meal. Eggs are my current obsession.
I just think they’re amazing. Powerhouses of nutrition within their own little package. And very versatile. You can cook them in so many different ways. But my two favourites are scrambled and fried. Personally, I think you just can’t beat a runny yolk. And with scrambled egg, pretty much anything goes with what you can throw in with it. I love scrambled egg and tuna, and onion is always a must! Maybe a few cheeky cherry tomatoes as well. Or salmon (smoked or tinned) goes amazingly as well. Ahh bliss.
But lately, my favourite salad du jour is this:
I promise you, there is feta and salad underneath that beasty egg. I made a mega egg by adding an egg white to one egg.
Within this salad there’s feta, beets, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, cucumber, lettuce, errrm yep that’s it. It might seem like a weird combo having egg and feta but it really goes! Or at least, I’ve convinced myself it goes…
I’ve also been eating an egg white alongside my morning breakfast oatmeal to increase my protein intake. Nothing fancy, just an egg white that I zap in the microwave for like 50 seconds and have after my oats. I’m thinking of adding it actually to my oats but I quite like just eating it on its own. Makes it feel like an extension to my normal meal! There are many reason I’m not a vegan, but not being able to eat eggs is a strong argument against it. Not that I have anything against being a vegan, I fully respect anyone who is a vegan, but personally for me it would be too hard. The only foods I don’t eat are ones that I don’t like the taste of (yes, cheddar, that is YOU). But I digress.
I also wanted to share my crazy flip-flops:
I won’t show you me wearing them up close as, seriously, feet are gross and I hate mine especially. But I love these shoes, they’re a bit crazy, I love the colours! And the feathers!
What are your favourite foods that you just can’t get enough of right now?

I have to say I agree on the eggs! I’m loving them right now, my favourite has to be an omelette with nut butter and jam!
Ahh yeh I’ve seen your omelette and it looks good! I’ve been meaning to try putting in some almond butter into an omelette but I just can’t shake my obsession with tuna at the moment.
I got through egg obsessions too where I just want to eat them for every single meal. And I’m def obsessed with flipflops…that’s a steady and I never get sick of them- ha!
I’ve been wearing flipflops as mch as possible because in Britain you only get a few chances in the year hehe.
I agree on the egg front – and I love your “mega egg” – but I can’t agree on the runny yolks, ewwwwwwwww! 🙂
I go through real phases plus some phases I never get out of, like broccoli (and chocolate, but not together 🙂 )
Haha broccoli and chocolate…I’m sure somewhere in the world there’s a recipe for that.
I love eggs and have no shame about it! I love how you can make them both savory and sweet
Definitely! They’re just brilliant hehe.
Eggs are a long time obsession of mine, I have them at least once a week, and I reckon I could easily eat them at every meal given the chance.
