Let’s Talk Eggs

happy eggEggs are a great source of protein, Vitamins B12 and choline and at only 70 calories and 5 grams of fat they are a great part of a healthy diet. Sadly, getting them out of the shell requires a little finesse.

Boiled eggs can be used in all sorts of dishes (try my Classic Deviled Eggs recipe), unfortunately peeling them can be a little bit of a hassle. Try putting a capful of white vinegar in the water as they boil and those shells will practically fall off the eggs!

When choosing your eggs always opt for free-range. Besides being a more humane option, research available shows some increase in the levels of Omega 3 and Vitamins A and E compared to non-free range eggs. Don’t forget to check the products you buy that are made with eggs too, as many producers are switching to this more ethical option.
