We Love Easter Eggs

eggsThis week we love eggs. In celebration of Easter, we’re applauding the incredible-edible egg, which is as close as you can come to a perfect food despite suffering ridicule in years past for its potentially cholesterol-raising effects.

Whether you love to scramble them, whip them up into a quiche, sunny side them up or hard-boil them, the egg’s versatility and its stellar nutrition profile makes it a no-brainer why these cute, compact wonders are at the top of any nutrition expert’s healthy-eating list.

Here is how an egg stacks up: one large contains 77 calories, 5 grams of fat (2 of them are saturated), 7 grams of protein, Vitamin A, selenium and riboflavin.

Put those leftover Easter eggs to good use with this super yummy recipe for deviled eggs and another for tasty broccoli, egg and olive salad.

Happy Easter!
