The alarm goes off and I hit the snooze. Then I hit the snooze again. And again. Needless to say, I’m not a morning person. Good thing you can make eggs an interesting meal any time of day. I’m not here to settle the debate about whether scrambled eggs should be beaten with milk, cream, or water—or nothing at all, per Anthony Bourdain—or whether you should add salt and pepper before or after cooking. I just know they’re the perfect vehicle for dressing up with herbs, spices and an infinite variety of unexpected mix-ins. All it takes is a little ingenuity and your favorite ingredients.
Eat your veggies
