I compile my favourite egg recipes in time for World Egg Day and discuss why eggs are a powerhouse of vegetarian nutrition that are healthy and high in protein!
Let’s talk about my favourite breakfast, lunch and dinner ingredient- eggs. I could think of a million egg recipes and they would never be even remotely the similar. Eggs are probably one of the most versatile and nutritionally well-rounded ingredients in my fridge, so it’s no wonder I eat them literally every day. They have 14 important nutrients like vitamins A, D, E, folate and iron, plus 6 grams of high quality protein. What’s not to love?
Eggs Feed Families
Not only do eggs provide a powerhouse of nutrition, but the people who make them are all about giving back, too. Egg farmers support close to 200 programs, causes and charities across Canada and around the world! They donate more than 3 million eggs to food bands, school breakfast programs and charities knowing how much nourishment is packed into each one. They’ve also partnered with Heart for Africa to deliver over 888,000 hand-packed meals each year to families in rural Swaziland. As a dietitian, I can really get on board with an industry like that.
World Egg Day
To celebrate the people who bring delicious nutritious eggs to the table for so many families, October 14th is officially World Egg Day! It’s a day where we can honour the humble egg by making all of our best egg recipes and look forward to every egg-packed meal!
I will be celebrating with an egg-filled day, and to help you observe the day, I’ve compiled some of my best egg recipes that you’ll love to experiment with.
