There’s no better time to recognize the incredible, edible egg for its vast nutritional benefits than during National Nutrition Month each March!
Eggs are extremely versatile and can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. One large egg has six grams of high-quality protein, which helps with maintaining a healthy weight and building muscle. Additionally, eggs are an excellent source of vitamin B12, phosphorus and riboflavin – all for just 70 calories.
