The secret is out. I have a thing for eggs. I love all kinds of eggs: scrambled, sunny-side up, over-easy, poached, hard-boiled, etc., etc., etc. So much so, that at my last doctor’s check-up my cholesterol was apparently close to the high end of the range. At the time of that check-up, I wasn’t even 30! I mean, really?!? Apparently I have a lot of good cholesterol but also some bad.
I was quite shocked but it didn’t really take me long to come to the conclusion that my two eggs per day breakfast routine might have something to do that number. So unfortunately, I have had to cut-back on my egg intake. What that means, however, is that when I do have eggs, I make sure it is worth my while. This Mediterranean scrambled eggs with spinach, tomato and feta cheese is definitely worth my while!
