Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month? We don’t need an excuse to eat healthy since we typically do, but setting examples for my kids on good food habits can sometimes be challenging, especially with my older daughter in school. She’s pretty good about knowing her limits on “junk” foods, and when she’s home we generally have meals with lean meats, fresh veggies, and complex carbs.
My youngest daughter is an egg fanatic. She can have eggs at every meal if I let her, and I can’t say I mind! The convenience and nutrition in an egg make it one of my preferred proteins, and eggs are so versatile, there is a way to make them for everyone in the family. Whether it is a breakfast burrito, fried egg, omelette or my personal favorite, frittata, a few ingredients mixed with eggs can make the perfect meal! And since my girls love having breakfast for dinner, we often have pancakes, eggs, and bacon.
Eggland’s Best is launching their “Chief Egg Officer” contest to find a person who is most passionate about including Eggland’s Best eggs in their routine and celebrating the benefits of eggs. We love Eggland’s Best Eggs because they have 4 times more Vitamin D, double Omega 3s and ten times more vitamin E than regular eggs. Plus, they have an organic variety which fits into our lifestyle. From now until May 24th, you can check out the Eggland’s Best website and tell them why YOU would make a great Chief Egg Officer. The grand prize winner will receive $5,000 cash, a year supply of Eggland’s Best eggs, and a special nutrition consultation with Nutrition Twins, Tammy Lakatos Shames and Lyssie Lakatos! Enter and create your own recipe using at least two Eggland’s Best eggs!
I created my own recipe, but it didn’t turn out the way I planned. On our breakfast for dinner night, my husband requested an Eggland’s Best omelette with peppers, onions, and cheese. My omelette fell apart, but that doesn’t change the taste – he loved his flavorful concoction. My younger daughter is a Plain Jane when it comes to her eggs. She loves her egg in a heart shape with salt, pepper, and a touch of garlic powder. Delicious, nutritious, and so cute!
