As a party planner, I love any reason to celebrate and I’m excited because I just found out that June 3rd is National Egg Day! These small but mighty nutritional powerhouses deserve to be recognized for all they do for our health and diets, so I have a few ways you can incorporate them into your daily diet.
Don’t get stuck with a “bad egg”. Not all eggs are created equal so make sure you pick the best egg! Try one with better-for-you attributes like an Eggland’s Best Egg. When you’re headed to the grocery store an easy way to make sure you’re getting a great egg is by finding one marked with the distinctive “EB” red stamp. Eggland’s Best eggs are the ONLY eggs that offer superior nutritional benefits like 6X vitamin D, more than double vitamin B12 and omega-3s, 25% less saturated fat and 10 times more vitamin E.
Now once you have your Eggland’s Best Eggs, go ahead and enjoy them! And what better way to celebrate National Egg Day then to make this awesome egg-centric recipe from Eggland’s Best – The Ultimate Breakfast Frittata!
Take a look at how fluffy, colorful and delicious this looks. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or maybe brinner! The egg creates a nice foundation to hold additional ingredients like potatoes, sausage and bacon...a good egg holds a recipe together! And this one which only takes 15 minutes to bake:

By using fresh eggs, your recipe will be fresh too! Eggland’s Best eggs come from hens fed an all-vegetarian diet consisting of healthy grains, canola oil and supplements like alfalfa and vitamin E. Plus, independent testing has confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs due to Eggland’s best unsurpassed quality processes and wholesome, all-vegetarian hen feed.
Another way to incorporate eggs into your diet is with snacks! A hard boiled egg is an easy item to grab and place in your kids’ lunchbox or into your purse on your way out the door! It won’t spill or make a mess...and I can boil a dozen or so during my weekly meal prepping! Snacking healthy with eggs will give you the energy you need to get through your busy days! And if you’re short on time, a bag of Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs are great to keep on hand!
