October 14th marks World Egg Day! How exciting is that?!? Of all National and World “days”, I have to say World Egg Day is a day that really resonates with me and my family.
We are huge egg lovers. I mean, how can we not be? An egg itself boasts 14 key essential nutrients and 6 high-quality grams of protein; making it an ideal breakfast, lunch, snack or post-workout snack. As a breastfeeding Mom of 4, I need to be able to grab nutritious and protein-packed meals and snacks on the go… Quite often you will find my fridge filled with hard-boiled eggs for that very reason.
Being a family of 6, you will often find our fridge stocked with at least 3 – 12 packs of eggs each week, and not one ever gets wasted. We boil a handful of eggs on Sunday nights to use up as snacks during the week.
The rest? They get used up in some of our favourite egg recipes, including:
- Egg & Quinoa Muffins
- Banana Egg Muffins
- Sriracha Egg Salad Sandwich
- Egg ‘n Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Sriracha Aioli
- Baked Egg Cups
- Jalapeno Deviled Eggs
- Beef and Ricotta Lasagna
- Chinese Egg Drop Soup & Cashew Chicken
So today on World Egg Day, join us as we celebrate all things eggs!
In honour of this special day, Egg Farmers of Canada has released a very special video that highlights how Canadian egg farmers and the humble egg help communities across the country and around the world.
Did you know that Canadian egg farmers collectively support close to 200 community programs, causes, charities and events across the country? Now that’s something worth celebrating!
And like I mentioned above, when it comes to nutrition and versatility, eggs are a perfect food! There is no doubt about that!
