Are Eggs Vegetarian
Eggs are also a fantastic vegetarian source of healthy protein that’s affordable and easy to prepare.
Isn’t it funny that eggs and dairy products come from animals and are not vegetables, but are allowed on the vegetarian diet?
Does a Vegan Eat Eggs
Vegans, on the other hand, do not eat eggs or dairy. In fact, a vegan does not anything that comes from an animal, including honey.
I do have one fantastic Vegan Chocolate Cupcake recipe in Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry
Vegan Eggs Recipe
If you’re on an egg free diet and looking for a vegan eggs recipe, I need to warn you, egg substitutes don’t work in my baked goods.
Eggs Gluten Free
Since we’re on the subject of special diets, we have to talk about my favorite –the gluten free diet. I was diagnosed with celiac disease, in the 1990s, during the dark ages of gluten free.
For me, avoiding gluten is essential, and eggs are one of my favorite gluten free foods because they’re so versatile.
Recipes with Eggs
I have an abundance of recipes with eggs, and they make my baked goods shine!
Here are some of my favorite recipes with eggs for you.
How to Hard Boil an Egg
Knowing how to hard boil an egg is a basic kitchen skill that’s incredibly useful, and it’s one of the first kitchen techniques I taught my boys.
After boiling endless batches of eggs, I’ve created my own secret method for hard boiled egg perfection that works every time.
Easy to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs
For me, knowing how to boil the perfect egg was one thing, pealing them was another.
It’s a bummer when pealing eggs gets tricky, but I’ve solved that too.
Secret tip, letting the eggs cool is far superior to an ice bath. For all the tricks I have up my sleeve, read more here.
Deviled Eggs Avocado
My Guacamole Deviled Eggs are a mouth-watering low carb fiesta without the chips. The avocado filling is blended with fresh cilantro, chives, lime juice, and red pepper flakes.
These deviled eggs have no mayo, instead getting their creamy texture from avocados, which are full of wonderfully tasty and healthy fat.
Recipe for Huevos Rancheros
While it will taste like you’ve labored in the kitchen all morning, my Huevos Rancheros recipe is a healthy breakfast that’s easy to prepare.
All you need to do to make this fan favorite recipe is pour cheddar cheese, eggs, and salsa over sauteed onions, then place in the oven and bake in a cast iron skillet until set.
Breakfast Ideas That Are Easy
Eggs for breakfast? I’m in! My Green Eggs take the health factor up a notch by adding superfood kale to the traditional scramble.

You have this recipe listed under Candida diet recipes. The Dijon Mustard would have vinegar in it, which is a strict no-no on the Candida overgrowth diets. Some say apple cider vinegar is ok, even good for the Candida diet. Most items with vinegar as an ingredient aren’t ACV. Would you have a substitute for the Dijon Mustard that might be good?
Lucy, thank you for pointing this out to me. I have removed this recipe from our Candida Diet selections. Feel free to experiment with the recipe and I hope you’ll let me know what works for you :-)

Hi, how long will these last in the fridge please?
These are awesome. I added some smoked salmon I brought from my trip to the west coast, and brought them over to my friend’s pool bday party. Everyone loved them!
Can I use regular grapeseed oil and have it turn out the same? I’m cooking tomorrow and think I want to add this to the mix, but don’t have enough time to order the veganaise.
They look yummy!
