One of Nutritions Best Kept Secrets. The Egg!

One of Nutritions Best Kept Secrets. The Egg!

With everyone confined to their homes, finding tasty, nutritious, foods that last a long time without preservatives can be a challenge. If you are looking to close your nutritional gap, some foods are hard to egg-nore! Horrible puns aside, with Easter weekend now behind us, many of us likely have numerous extra eggs in our refrigerators.

Eggs pack a wallop in nutritional value.  Two eggs deliver 20% of the daily requirements for zinc, 30% of the daily requirements for vitamin B12 and riboflavin, and over 40% of the requirements for a host of other essential nutrients like biotin, iodine, choline and selenium.  For as little as $2.00-3.00 a dozen, few other foods can deliver more goodness for the money. What’s more, eggs are versatile, taste good, and when stored in the refrigerator, rarely go bad.  So stock up and start scrambling, boiling, poaching, baking, and frying.
