NATIONAL EGG MONTH
National Egg Month in May reminds us all the egg is cracked up to be!
It sure beats many other foods and whips up a great meal. We rely on eggs for a variety of uses, too. They’re essential for baked goods, but on their own, eggs make an eggcellent meal.
Whether boiled, baked, basted or fried, eggs are full of protein. They go well with vegetables and herbs, too.
One of the world’s most affordable food sources, eggs contain all the nutrients a body needs except vitamin C. So if you’re on a budget and want to stay healthy, add eggs to your superfood list.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Try new recipes throughout the month. Eggs are versatile and can be incorporated into every meal of the day. They’re also portable. Use #NationalEggMonth to share all the incredible ways eggs make your life and health better.
National Egg Month has been observed since the 1960s. Different months had the honor, however, as the reputation of the egg soured for a period of time, so did National Egg Month. But in the 1990s, the American Egg Board re-established National Egg Month in May. Since then, studies have been shining a light on good and bad egg nutrition, we have come a long way to understanding more about the differences in cholesterol and what it means for our health.
