Are They Eggs or Just Eggs?

Are They Eggs or Just Eggs?

In an effort to help those who are allergic or choose not to eat chicken eggs, this blog’s for you.

And if you love chicken eggs, biscuits and gravy, and Eggs Benedict, this blog’s for you.

There’s something for everyone. 

Last week I visited a local eatery that offers a beautiful menu of vegan and gluten-free options, along with regular fare.

Harvest Room in Munster is a winner. It was there that I learned about Just Eggs. Just Eggs is an egg substitute that looks and tastes like scrambled eggs.

Just Eggs was so yummy, I went on a search. I found Just Eggs at Whole Foods. 

I made “egg” fried rice with red pepper, Vidalia onion, leftover rice, and Just Eggs. It was delicious.

The main ingredients of Just Eggs are water, mung bean protein isolate, and expeller-pressed canola oil. The “less than 2%” ingredient list is a bit lengthier.

Mung beans are one of the best plant-based sources of protein. One serving of Just Eggs provides 5 grams of protein. A chicken egg has 6 grams.

While it is desirable to eat real food most of the time, it’s a challenge.

Just Eggs is a processed food with some questionable ingredients when it comes to “is it good for you?” I think most people would be fine eating them sometimes.

All things in moderation.

If you crave eggs and are looking for a vegan option, you may want to give Just Eggs a whirl.

Then we have Mr. Non-Compliant, who loves biscuits and gravy and Eggs Benedict.

The most amazing biscuits and gravy, according to him, are to be had at Viola Café in Three Oaks, Michigan.

They are only available Friday thru Sunday, and it’s best to get there early before they run out.

He is quite fond of the Eggs Benedict there as well. It’s all good at Viola Café.

All things in moderation.
