These days, people are so busy that I’ve almost got the impression that being in a rush has become trendy. Preparing meals is often last priority, and I think that’s sad, because we should definitely take the time to eat properly. 

This recipe is extremely easy to prepare, cheap, and healthy.

I hope it’ll be a help to overworked professionals, families looking for new ideas, students in the middle of exam period, or anyone else who’s short on time but cares about what they eat.

  1. Lightly brush the inside of a mug with oil and break the eggs into it. Whisk gently.
