I do love eggs, that is not a secret. I became very weary of eating anything but eggs whites when we started our weight loss journey. Willie always told me that was silly because eggs were really not that bad to eat because eggs are a great source of protein and vitamins. Come to find out, Willie was right and there’s really no need to avoid the whole egg.
That is why I was so excited when I was contacted by Eggland’s Best to talk about their eggs. Eggs don’t have to be an ingredient in your dish, it can be your dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would eat eggs at every meal if I possibly could. Now that I’m thinking about it, why can’t I?
We all know I enjoy a good egg muffin in the morning!
I use the classic large egg, 12 count pack. Eggland’s Best large eggs are only 60 calories (compared 70 calories in other eggs) and have 25% less saturated fat. When Eggland’s Best eggs are compared to other eggs, the Eggland’s eggs has twice as much Omega-3’s and 38% more lutein. These eggs also have 4 times the vitamin D, 3 times the amount of B12 and are a great source of vitamin B2 and B5 compared to other eggs on the market. Eggland’s Best has done a great job of showing you how their eggs are different than other eggs, just in case you need to see it for yourself.
Eggland’s Best hens are fed a vegetarian diet consisting of healthy grains, canola oil, and a supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp, and Vitamin E. But what I love most about these eggs are the hens are not fed any animal by products or processed grains. Willie and I have been really focused on cutting out the processed foods and it’s nice to know the eggs that we are eating don’t contain any of that stuff we’re trying to avoid. Eggland’s Best never uses hormones, steroids or antibiotics of any kind. Did you ever think about hens being fed processed grains or animal by products until now? If you’re trying to clean up your daily eating habits, we all need to take those things into consideration.
All this egg talk had me thinking about making some eggs so this morning I made a sweet potato hash with collard greens and an egg! I’ve never made anything like this before, but I thought I would take the whole vegeterian hen fed thing and let it inspire me to create a new dish! Do you see how bright that yolk is from the egg? It’s creamy and light. I can really taste the difference in this egg. The Eggland’s Best egg is so fresh and delicious. Did you see what the box says? Compared to other eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer! The company tagline says it best: “Better Taste. Better Nutrition. Better Eggs.(R)”. Eggland’s Best eggs are produced locally and delivered to the supermaket within two days of laying. When you choose Eggland’s Best you are choosing a fresh and great quality product.
Have you tried Eggland’s Best eggs? How would you make your eggs? Scrambled? Over easy? In a hash? The possibilities are endless so tell me how you prefer to eat your eggs.
