People lead such busy lives these days and it’s completely understandable that there isn’t always time to sit down around our oil cloth tablecloths for breakfast, lunch and supper. Eating on the go has become the norm for so many of us – which is why we think Yowk, a pre-cooked boiled egg complete with pre-cut soldiers, will likely prove really rather successful.

The egg is cooked before it’s packaged up and put out on the shop shelves – all you have to do is add some boiling water to the pot and then in five minutes, hey presto! You’ve got your breakfast. It even comes with a handy little spoon so you can crack the shell and munch away if you’re nowhere near cutlery of your own.

“Making Yowk portable, simple and fast to prepare were key elements in its development and will appeal to a broad demographic, including busy families and professionals who would eat more eggs if it was guaranteed that they would achieve a runny yolk every time. Now with Yowk, they can,” Ian Hetherington, managing director of the New Egg Company, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying.

Low in fat and high in protein, Yowk’s a pretty good healthy alternative for when you’ve got no choice but to eat in a hurry. We often think that there isn’t a huge amount of choice for healthy eating breakfast-wise in the supermarkets and invariably find ourselves reaching for the muffins, so maybe we’ll give this a go instead.
