Easy Egg Wraps
A great substitute for bread wraps or pancakes. A single ingredient which can be added to in any way you like. High in protein and healthy fats, filling and cheap.
For any time of day, any season, at home or out and about. Sweet or savoury, with whatever flavours and accompanients take your fancy.
The only essential ingredient is egg!
1 large egg makes 2 wraps—make as many as you like and chill or freeze. Please buy the best quality eggs you can afford.
Optional savoury additions to the egg—
Herbs and spices
Salt and pepper
Dried flaked seaweed
Optional sweet additions to the egg—
Spices like cinnamon
Couple of drops of vanilla extract
- Heat a small frying pan to really hot
- Spray with a little oil (I used rapeseed) or you could use a tiny bit of butter. You only need to do this once unless your pan is really sticky.
- Pour equal amounts of your egg mix into the pan.
- Fry for 3 minutes (approx.) on the 1st side and a little less on the 2nd
That is it!
Delicious hot or cold. Easy to make in advance and use in place of bread wraps.
For freezing, you will need a little baking paper or equivalent between each to stop them sticking.
Enjoy with whatever you would normally put in a sandwich, or on a pancake.
1 egg = 2 wraps
each takes 4 minutes
Eggs provide more nutrients per calorie than any other animal food, except milk. Often described as a perfect source of protein, rich in selenium (great for good moods), Vitamin A, many B vitamins, iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium & potassium. Try to buy organic ,or at least free range.
Herbs – antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, glucose & cholesterol-lowering activities, as well as properties that improve the brain function & mood.
Dark Chocolate is healthier than milk or white because it has a higher content of cocoa beans. Cocoa beans are a great source of protein, health fat, anti-oxidants. Also well known for its mood enhancing qualities, partly because the beans contain small amounts of caffeine.
I don’t think there is an issue with eating small amounts of good quality, high cocoa %, dark chocolate now & again, as part of a balanced diet. The problem for many is stopping at the small portion, or eating the wrong chocolate in the 1st place.
