  1. Your scramble will tend to taste more savory when it is runny in some places.
  2. Not sure which oil to fry those babies in? Coconut oil is recommended because it gives the eggs an irresistible aroma when cooked, but other oil will do the job still though! 

In just 5 minutes, you have prepared one of nature’s healthiest foods. Eggs are super helpful for losing weight, revving up your metabolism for a busy day and keeping you fuller longer to fight off mindless snacking. Enjoy with ketchup, pepper, or whatever your heart desires.
