Like most of us, I used to think of eggs as breakfast food. But these days, when I really have no time to make dinner, the first thing I reach for is a carton of eggs. Eggs are inexpensive and fast cooking; they can more than hold their own as the star attraction in the center of your plate. And these days eggs are considered a healthy choice (thank god, the food police have let them alone finally!) – One egg has 13 essential nutrients in varying amounts for only 75 calories.
