Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but if you've been sticking with the same scrambled eggs for years, it may be time for a breakfast makeover. Why not try poached eggs, instead? While poaching eggs may require refining your cooking technique, it pays off in tender whites and creamy yolks. And from a health perspective, poached eggs have some advantages over other cooking methods.
Avoid Excess Calories and Fat
The biggest benefit of poaching your eggs is that you'll cook them directly in water, with no added fat required. While fat is a healthy part of your diet, cooking your food in it also packs in the calories – just a tablespoon of butter has 100 calories, for example.
Poaching means that all the calories come from the eggs themselves, and you can enjoy two poached eggs for a relatively scant 143 calories. If you eat eggs cooked in a tablespoon of butter five days a week, switching to simple poached eggs would save you about 500 calories a week – enough to lose about 7.5 pounds of fat over the course of a year.
High in Protein
Of course, eating poached eggs also means you'll get benefits from the nutritional value of the eggs themselves. That means your meal will be packed with several grams of high-quality protein – 13 grams per 2-egg serving, to be exact. The protein in eggs is considered a complete protein, which means it includes all the amino acids you need to get from your diet. Complete protein supports muscle tissue, nourishes your skin, hair and bones, and also keeps your immune system revving to fight off infection.
A Source of Micronutrients
Starting your day with poached eggs also means you'll get an array of vitamins and minerals. They're a particularly good source of vitamin A and zinc, two nutrients important for a robust immune system. At about 540 international units of vitamin A, two poached eggs provide up to 23 percent of your daily vitamin A needs. And the 1.3 milligrams of zinc covers 12 to 16 percent of your zinc requirements. You'll also get small amounts of calcium, iron and vitamin E.

Making Delicious Poached Eggs
Once your eggs are poached to perfection, season them with pepper, garlic salt, cayenne, cilantro or even a little fresh basil. Homemade pesto or chermoula also add flavor to poached eggs without the salt and sugar found in store-bought sauces.
