“Eggs are brain food” is a mantra I was INDOCTRINATED with since I was little. My Mom fed me and my brother eggs every day between the ages of about 1 -3 years old because our pediatrician told her that’s when maximum brain connections are formed, and she wasn’t about to let that opportunity get away. Now, it’s impossible for me to take any important test without a breakfast that includes eggs.
My Dad fixed me steak and eggs on the morning I took the SSAT and my Mom credits all that choline in the egg yolks for my results . . . which is why, when WTNH anchors Teresa LaBarbera and Jocelyn Maminta invited me back to cook a breakfast for the morning of the S.A.T., I knew exactly what to do.
I cooked Buttermilk Biscuit with Poached Eggs Florentine, which I call “Breakfast For Dinner” in Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T. I had so much fun and I hope I am asked back to Connecticut Style to cook on the “In The Kitchen” segment again.
Here are a few fun facts* about eggs, which get MALIGNED for raising cholesterol levels:
- Eggs are actually a multivitamin (except vitamin C)
- Eggs are one of the few natural sources of vitamin D
- Eggs are a complete protein, which means they are one of the few foods that contain all 9 essential amino acids
*Thanks, Mom. You are a REPOSITORY of egg information.
- INDOCTRINATE = brainwash
