Eggs are a staple of many people’s diets, and our routines may have us going to the same prepping methods day in and day out. So I wanted to show the versatility of eggs and how you can get both savory and sweet combos, depending on your mood.

Personally, the decision between the two would depend on the timing in relation to my workout. If you’re trying to shed body fat, I’d have the omelette combo before your workout and would opt for the pancakes as a post-workout meal (Not in same day). This is because we are the most insulin sensitive post-workout, so you don’t have to feel guilty putting some maple syrup on them.
But you really can’t go wrong with these style of pancakes because they are made with eggs, coconut flour, water, and a banana rather than standard flour. This combo would give you 24g of protein, which has been shown to help slow down the release of sugar in the blood. All good things.
As you may know, I prefer pasture raised eggs over conventional eggs for many reasons: ✅ The chickens are raised in a more humane way & fed natural diet as opposed to corn and soy.
✅ More nutritious - higher in vitamin A, E, and Omega-3’s, which means it’s better at lowering triglyceride levels, which is a risk factor for heart disease.
✅ Contain 3-4x more vitamin D
✅ Lower in fat
I constantly hear that people still don’t have options at their local stores to buy eggs from pasture-raised chickens, and therefore don’t get the extra nutrients. So I’m always directing them online to source their proteins, and for eggs I recommend @chinovalleyranchers
as a source. It’s always good when you can go online & check the company’s practices for raising animals, and they do it right. “It’s not what you eat, it’s what you eat ate.”
