2014 was recently named the year of the egg for American restaurants by president and CEO Christopher Krohn. Although egg used to get a bad rap for being high in cholesterol, their image has taken a turn for the better.

Eggs are one of most diverse ingredients out there. There are so many ways to cook them scrambled, sunny side up, boiled, deviled, or poached. They can be eaten by themselves or as an ingredient in a dish. And they are very versatile since they are no longer just for breakfast. For being so small eggs pack a huge punch since they are loaded with 13 vitamins and minerals, high quality lean protein and only contain 70 calories. The protein in eggs is the highest quality protein found in any food. Lean protein provides mental and physical energy to keep you going throughout the day. A large egg contains 6 grams of high quality protein. The nutrients in eggs play an important role in weight management, muscular development, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health, and more.

Eggs are the perfect fit to a healthy lifestyle. Affordable, versatile and diverse, eggs are a super food in their own right.
