Happy World Egg Day! Eggs are one of the most affordable sources of protein going and today we’re going to celebrate some of our favourite ways to enjoy them as well as some egg-cellent facts about why they’re just so nutritionally egg-ceptional.

Our Shakshouka Rancheros is a great way to enjoy the protein in eggs! With two large eggs you’ll get 13 grams of protein and heaps of great vitamins from the eggs and all the veggies! Happy World Egg Day!
Eggs have a wealth of great vitamins and nutrients. Vitamins A, B12, D, E, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and many more including Zinc. Our Egg and Chorizo Taco Filling is a great way to enjoy all those fantastic benefits for a healthy, and tasty, dinner!
Did you know that no matter what type of eggs you buy, you’re getting the same nutrition? It’s true! Organic, free range, free run and regular eggs all provide the same great nutrition. The exceptions to the rule are Vitamin D or Omega 3 enhanced eggs. With these eggs, the hens have been fed a diet rich in these nutrients and that benefit is passed through to their eggs, for us to enjoy!
There are over 14 key nutrients in eggs, including Lutein and Zeaxanthin to help maintain good vision, Selenium to strengthen body tissues and Choline to aid brain development! Our recipe for Smoky Stuffed Sweet Potatoes is a great way to take advantage of these benefits in an easy, healthy dinner.
Eggs contain all 9 essential amino acids our bodies need, but don’t generate themselves. They’re a great addition to any meal to ensure you’re getting a well balanced diet. In our West Coast Cauliflower Kedgeree, eggs give a protein boost to cauliflower rice and smoked salmon, making it a complete (and tasty!) meal.
Eggs pack a lot of nutritional punch into their small shells! Vitamins, nutrients, easy to digest protein – and all for just 80 calories per large egg! It’s why eggs are a key component in the diets of many athletes and make a great snack if you’re watching what you eat. Happy World Egg Day!
