Add water or milk when preparing scrambled eggs.

Making scrambled eggs requires adding either 1 tbsp of water or milk per egg before beating and cooking in 1/2 tsp margarine or butter. Using water makes them fluffier in texture, but lacks the richness in colour that milk produces.


Vitamin D milk contains 9 calories per 1 tbsp. One per cent low-fat milk has 6; soy has 5 and water has none. Stick butter or margarine has about 18 calories per ½ tsp.

Eggs should be refrigerated at 45 degrees F or below. Use the sell by date on the side of the carton as a guide for freshness. Do not use eggs cracked or broken before purchasing.
