The incredible, edible egg - no longer the cholesterol-monster it was once deemed and a staple in food cultures around the world.
You could spend your valuable time sifting through dozens of blogs on cooking eggs how you like them. Or you can take this course & get the exact information you need & want for your ideal egg. Let me cut through the noise, test the methods, & research the most straight-forward techniques to make your cooking experience as delicious as your imagination can conjure.
The egg is a humble work-horse ingredient, an elegant meal, & a hunger-satiating treasure. Its delicate proteins react to varying heat & moisture conditions to transform into dozens of creations. From creamy whites to runny or jammy yolks, light and fluffy omelets, & frittatas so packed with vegetables you can eat a slice like a piece of pizza.
In the US, it is typical breakfast fare, but elsewhere, like in France, it is the most refined of dinners. Eggs may be a cheap grocery item, but don't let that fool you from treating them with the utmost of culinary respect. Combine a couple of vegetables with a grain & add an egg to make a simple, complete meal. Drop an egg into a vegetable soup for an extra protein boost. Top a grain salad with an egg & pair with a lettuce salad for a nutrient-packed lunch. Add an egg to your favorite sandwich for a gooey treat.
For dieters, eggs are an integral piece to nutrient intake & to feeling full - both strong indicators of the likelihood of staying on a diet & experiencing success.
In this course, you'll be guided through video demonstrations of the most common methods to cook eggs & how to cook them exactly how you like them. You'll also be educated on egg myths. The suggested methods aren't anything hokey, but are, instead, based on science - how the egg proteins react to different types & levels of heat.

This course is unique because of my personal background. As a certified Health Coach and former Associate Dean of Entrepreneurship and Coaching Skills for a major online nutrition school, I've spent years breaking down "assumed" or "second-nature" information so it can be absorbed and put into action, whether for personal health goals or business-oriented dreams. I get that the simplest things aren't the easiest things and when it comes to cooking and eating, we may have forgotten how natural it is. And we may need to be taught that intuitive nature again. I take that approach in this course with the goal of getting you into the kitchen.
