Celebrate the Power of the Egg

April 12, 2019

Egg salad may be a bit of an underdog, but it’s worth celebrating this week.  No matter who you are, egg salad is for you.  Consider the power of eggs.

For those aiming for a healthy weight: Eggs are filling, keeping you satisfied for hours.

For pregnant women: Eggs provide brain-boosting nutrients—choline and lutein—for your developing baby.

For kids: Eggs are a kid and baby-friendly source of iron and vitamin D—both important for proper development.

For athletes: Eggs are a quick protein food for recovery.

For the environmentally conscious: Eggs are an earth-friendly protein source.

For the starving student: Eggs are inexpensive!

For the time-strapped professional: Eggs take minutes to prepare (even egg salad).  Save more time by buying eggs already hard-boiled or grab the chef-prepared Tarragon Egg Salad from Harmons’ Kitchen.

For any Utahn: One egg provides 11% of your daily vitamin D needs—crucial for the darker months.
