Sponsored: Eggcellent news

Written by 

ingles dietitianEggs are one of the least expensive and most versatile sources of protein that you can find in the supermarket. Think about it, you can cook or bake with eggs. You can eat eggs for breakfast, lunch or dinner or use them in a dessert. You can scramble, fry, poach, soft or hard boil eggs!

EGG-citing facts:

One large egg = 75 calories (5 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein) 

Eggs contain all 9 of the essential amino acids.

Eggs are an excellent source of choline and selenium and are rich in leucine. 

Eggs can be safely stored in your refrigerator for weeks.

Eggs cook quickly. 

Did you know:

There is NO nutritional difference between an egg with a brown or a white shell? The shell color is due to the type or breed of chicken! There are even eggs with blue or greenish shells!

Ingles sells hard-boiled chopped eggs on our salad bars and we have packages of whole hard-boiled eggs in the DAIRY section.
