Eggs are one of the most common breakfast foods around the world. You can make omelettes, scrambled eggs, or sunny side up. Oh the possibilities! But the variety in egg creations are not the only thing that makes eggs great. Eggs come with many nutritional benefits, such as helping you lose weight!
Not bad for a budget friendly food, wouldn’t you agree? (But remember, eat only 2-3 eggs a day to prevent consuming too much cholesterol.)
But what do you do when you run out of eggs? Do you just take the empty egg carton and recycle it?
If you do, you are doing yourself a disservice. There are plenty of uses for egg cartons! Don’t believe me? Check out this slideshow for 10 creative ways to repurpose your old egg cartons.
