Sometimes a classic breakfast is the best breakfast. Martha Stewart has a few simple, yet effective secrets that can help us all cook the tastiest scrambled eggs. So what are her key tips on getting them perfect? In a video shared to her website, titled “Scrambled Eggs 101“, she revealed that in order to get those delicious, golden eggs you should “cook them over low heat and keep them moving in the skillet and use enough butter to make them not stick.”

She threw in a few extra tips that we definitely wanted to share. She mentions that you should whisk the eggs with a fork and make sure to use a pan that is on the smaller side. Stewart also shared that you don’t any additive such as milk, cream or water; “if you have really good eggs, you don’t need anything in the eggs at all.” She also shared that you definitely don’t want the pan to get too hot. You know the pan is ready for the eggs when the butter is hot enough that “when you drop a little bit of moisture in it, it will splatter.” One last tip from Stewart is to “always put your eggs, if you can, on a heated plate…and thats it.”

For Martha Stewart’s perfect scrambled eggs you only need a few ingredients! Three eggs, a tablespoon of butter and salt and pepper to taste. A simple and delicious breakfast that’s fast? Sign me up!

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
