When you read the title of this article, you either wrinkled your nose in disgusted confusion or nodded in exuberant agreement. Whichever the reaction was, hear this: eggs and egg dishes are AMAZING with hot sauce added! Not only does this spicy condiment add flavor and kick to otherwise bland eggs, the sauce, itself, is full of health benefits that you didn’t consider the last time you put a line of it on your taco. Specifically, eggs and hot sauce are a delicious pair that throws your metabolism an unexpected curveball.
Capsaicin, the active ingredient in the peppers used to make hot sauce, produces pain-relieving side effects, speeds up metabolism, and even reduces the likelihood of prostate cancer. The hotter the hot sauce, the more of this delightfully scorching ingredient you are ingesting. The burning sensation triggers the release of endorphins, the chemicals in your brain that ease pain, and can provide relief of things like arthritis or chronic back pain. Eating spicy hot sauce can provide a temporary metabolic boost, which helps to control appetite and suppresses pesky cravings.
Eggs are, of course, nature’s superfood. Packed full of protein, vitamins, and the incredibly important folic acid, eggs provide a solid portion of essential nutrients to begin or continue your day healthily. Though once thought to contribute to high cholesterol, eating more egg whites than yolks and preparing the product in a healthy manner can actually contribute to overall health.
Combine these two tasty and substantially healthy foods, and you are in for not only a culinary treat but will gain some undoubtedly great health benefits from their powers, combined. Before you turn your nose up and move on, consider trying hot sauce on your next omelet!
