Switch Up Your Go-To Scramble With These Delicious Egg Breakfast Recipes (1)

Good news, if you're a fan of whipping up an omelette for breakfast, you'll be happy to know that eggs are (practically) the perfect healthy food. Despite the controversy that has at times surrounded them (mainly because of the high cholesterol content in egg yolks), they are indeed one of the most nutritious foods that you can include in your diet regularly.

In fact, most of the egg's nutrients are actually found in the yolk, says Ashley Nader, a registered dietician and Wellory nutrition coach, and eggs in general help the body stay in tip-top shape. “Whole eggs provide a variety of health benefits, contain all nine essential amino acids, and are an excellent source of protein. They help to build and repair our muscles, organs, and overall optimize bodily functions.”

And more than that, eggs are a perfect choice for breakfast, as they help start your day with health-promoting vitamins and minerals and a large dose of protein—not to mention they’re affordable and easy to prepare. In fact, there’s only really one problem with eggs: They can get boring fast. After all, you can only come up with so many different ways to season your scrambled eggs before it gets old.

But eating eggs for breakfast doesn’t have to mean major egg fatigue. Really, there’s only one rule that Nadar says you have to keep in mind: “A healthy egg breakfast is one that is balanced with complex carbs and healthy fats.” Despite what you may have heard about just eating egg whites, it’s also important to consume the whole egg so that you really get all of its nutritional value.

So, if you’re looking to spice things up with your morning eggs, check out these 35 (yes, you read that right) egg recipes for breakfast. Not only do they follow Nadar’s guide for what makes a healthy egg breakfast, but they’re sure to keep your taste buds (and body) satisfied all morning long.
