I think too many people fall victim to eating bits and pieces of crushed eggshell after incorrectly cracking an egg into a bowl of batter or atop a greased skillet. It definitely puts a damper on that breakfast or brunch staple you wanted, right? Put an end to noshing on eggshell residue and start cracking eggs like a pro with this step-by-step guide to a truly flawless technique.

How to crack an egg:

Get a small bowl and one egg.

  1. Hold the egg in your dominant hand, focusing on the thumb, index and middle finger.
  2. Carefully, but with controlled force, crack the egg on a flat surface (like your countertop) enough to break the shell.
  3. Over the small bowl, gently push into the crack made and release the egg.
  4. If you happen to get any shell, use one of the cracked half egg shells to scoop it out.

That doesn’t seem too hard, right? It’s all about having that flat surface.

Where Should You Aim When You’re Cracking An Egg?

Don’t forget the other important factor: The point at which to strike the egg is crucial for a clean crack. An egg cracks best around its equator (aka its center). Cracking the egg in the equator (center) exhibits the strong association between an egg’s shape or geometry and its rigidity or—in more technical terms—its mechanical property. 

Striking the egg at its weakest point—which is where the curve is most prominent in the center—will allow for a seamless crack because it’s more brittle there. Also, just one sharp smack is much more effective than several light taps, so get your technique right!

 

Now, it’s time to head off to the kitchen to get cracking! Now that you’re armed with exactly how to crack an egg, the possibilities for breakfast are endless! Just remember: stop cracking your eggs on the side of your bowl, and switch to doing it on a flat surface instead. You’ll break the shell, without ending up with shards in your food, something you and everyone else you’re cooking for will greatly appreciate.

Vegan Or Vegetarian

Happy January 2nd. Blogmas officially ended December 31st. If you are new to my blog I will post all the links to the thirty-one days.

Blogmas Days 1-31

*I realized that my #blogmas days had repeated tagged posts and that not every post was linked. I caught the mistake and fixed it. Every link should now be clickable and days 1-18 are now linked. If you are new to #blogmas you can catch up below.

There actually may be a reason why people are confused about the difference between vegan and vegetarian, and that may have to do the origin of the word vegetarian.

The original word for vegetarian—coined in England in the early 19th century—did, in fact, mean vegan. That is, no animal products at all. Veganism is about respect for all living beings and letting them live their lives as they see fit, rather than as serving us. This means animals are not forced into milk production or raised and used for wool and leather. It is about compassion for all species.


 Different Types Of Vegetarians

An ovo-lacto vegetarian (or lacto-ovo vegetarian) is a non-meat eater (vegetarian) who consumes some animal products such as eggs and animal dairy products. Unlike pescatarians, they do not consume fish or other seafood. A lacto-vegetarian consumes animal dairy products but no eggs, whereas an ovo-vegetarian consumes eggs but not animal dairy. A pescatarian typically consumes eggs, animal dairy, and fish, but no animal meat.

There are new terms “reducetarian”(where participants reduce the amount of meat they consume in order to improve their health, protect the environment, and spare farmed animals from cruelty)

“flexitarian” (A semi-vegetarian or flexitarian “diet” is one that is plant-based with the occasional inclusion of meat)  are now entering the vegetarian scene.

“Reducetarians actively reduce the amount of animal products consumed in their overall “diet”, seeking vegan options to their favorite animal products, whereas flexitarians are comfortable opting for animal products or their vegan counterparts.


How Would You Define Someone Who Identifies As A Vegan

Veganism is both an ideology and an eating methodology. According to the Vegan Society, veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.


 Vegetarianism Considered A Stepping Stone To Veganism

Switching to a vegan “diet” is not something you have to do overnight. If your objective is to have a vegan lifestyle, starting with a vegetarian “diet” is definitely a good move. Other people are perfectly capable of adopting a vegan “diet” quickly, sometimes because they have some sort of enlightening—an experience that makes them realize they don’t want to consume animal products anymore.

When shopping for eggs, it’s inevitable to notice that the brown eggs almost always cost more than the white. Some may think that one is better than the other, but the truth is they’re not very different at all. There is a difference between brown eggs and white eggs, but it might not be all it’s cracked up to be. Let me eggsplain (lol).


What’s The Difference Between Brown Eggs And White Eggs

Eggshells get their color due to the breed of chicken they come from. For example, breeders have found that many white-feathered chickens with white earlobes lay white eggs, and red-feathered chickens with red earlobes lay brown eggs. While earlobe color can be a predictor of egg color, it is not always the rule.

For example, one breed of red-earlobed chickens—called the Aracuana breed—often lays blue eggs, but may also lay eggs that are green, pink, or even lavender, according to nonprofit organization Aviculture Europe.


Why Are Brown Eggs More Expensive Than White Eggs

Because brown eggs tend to cost more, people assume they are more nutritious and more delicious. But that is not the case. Brown eggs are more expensive because of the size of the hen that lays them. Red-feathered chickens tend to weigh more than white-feathered chickens. Because larger chickens require more food and land to remain healthy throughout production, higher production costs lead to more expensive products in the end when you’re shopping for eggs in the grocery store.

Some people also think that one color shell is harder than the other, or that there are different colored yolks. These factors are due to the age and feed of the chicken. The coloring of shells or bird has nothing to do with this.

Whether you prefer to eat eggs scrambled and fluffy, runny atop a slice of avocado toast, hard boiled in a salad, or fried on top of a burger (trust me on that one), you can’t go wrong when picking between brown eggs and white eggs.
