Eggs for Easter?


  • EGGS are one of the highest quality of proteins. 
  • EGG WHITES contain adequate amounts all essential amino acids and are used as the standard which all protein is measured.
  • One WHOLE EGG=75 cals, 6g protein, 5g fat.
  • One EGG WHITE=17 cals, 3.6g protein, 0g fat.
  • EGGS have no carbs and the cholesterol is found in the EGG YOLK.

Eggs are a good source of low-cost, high-quality protein.  Dietary protein provides us with amino acids that we use to make our muscles, tissues, skin, immune system antibodies, nutrient-carrying  transport proteins and many other compounds vital to physiological function!  

Eggs also promote healthy thyroid function (iodine), brain  health (choline), heart health, and eye health (carotenoid lutein).  Eggs have additional health-promoting benefits.  They contain nutrients that help with bone-building vitamin D, K and phosphorus, energy producing (vitamin B2 and B5),  and more!  

Make sure you choose your EGGS from organic, cage-free chickens!

There are many things you can do with eggs (egg whites): omelets, frittatas, scrambled, and hard-boiled they make a great "fast food" snack!
