Reasons to LOVE Eggs!

Why eat eggs?

We love our hens and ducks!  We go above and beyond to give them the absolute best care!
There are lots of great reasons to LOVE and eat eggs!

Eggs are a good source of high quality protein (6 grams/egg)

Eggs are full of 9 amino acids which are the building blocks of quality protein.  Eggs help build muscle strength and prevent muscle loss in aging adults.   

Eggs are full of nutrients

Eggs are a great natural source of Vitamin D.  A deficiency in Vitamin D is often linked to depression, psoriasis, and asthma.  Vitamin D is also important in calcium absorption which helps to form strong healthy bones.  Eggs are a great source of choline which is great for your memory!

Eggs keep you feeling full

I eat two eggs for breakfast most days.  I never have to worry about feeling hungry before lunch comes.  The protein in the egg slows the digestion of food in your stomach which keeps you feeling full.  

Eggs can help you lose weight

Because of all that high-quality protein making you feel fuller for longer, you are tempted to snack less!

Eggs are inexpensive

Compared with meat sources of protein, eggs are an inexpensive source of protein.  

Eggs are versatile

Eggs can be scrambled, poached, baked, fried in butter, hard-boiled, & soft-boiled.  They are used in savory and sweet baked dishes.  You can eat them for breakfast, lunch, supper, or a snack. 

So, remember...
