Denver chef appreciates the egg as much as a parent as he does a culinarian

In spreading the good word about eggs as World Egg Day (Oct. 13) rolls around this year, one might expect me – as a chef – to approach the topic from a culinary point of view. I will most definitely make a little time do so later in this piece, but before that, I’m going to detail my appreciation and love for the egg from another perspective; that of a time-crunched parent.

It’s tough to think of another food that provides the all-around health portfolio that eggs bring to the table, and yet also comes in an abundance and diversity of simple, quick recipes. There are 2-minute methods to whipping up various dishes, such as an egg-sausage-cheese breakfast bowl – a pretty efficient way to send your kid out the door for school. Egg sandwiches make a perfect, snappy and hearty lunch on the weekends, and the good ole’ hard-boiled egg is a heck of a substitute for a sugary snack any day of the week.

During my 35-plus years of fueling athletes, I’ve had the pleasure of working with every level of sports, from the developmental program for USA Hockey, to the collegiate ranks, and with all of the professional leagues.

My name is Dave Ellis, and I'm a veteran sports registered dietitian who lives in Colorado Springs and travels coast-to-coast implementing high-performance fueling solutions for some of most progressive teams in the U.S.

While the needs of athletes change over the course of their careers, there is one common dietary thread I’ve witnessed; eggs. And what better time to draw attention to this icon of clean eating and its rightful place at the table of healthy living than on World Egg Day (Oct. 13).

World Egg Day set for Friday, Oct. 13

Monday, October 9, 2017

One of our favorite days of the year is just around the corner!

World Egg Day is celebrated every year on the second Friday in October and was first celebrated in 1996. Since then, people around the world have continued to celebrate eggs as an excellent, affordable source of high-quality protein and their vital role in feeding people around the world. Every day, egg farmers across the globe join together in their commitment to provide high-quality eggs to help feed the world’s hungry.

Here at home, America’s egg farmers continue to balance their operations with firm commitments to the people they feed, the animals they care for and the environment we all share.

Pedal the Plains riders enjoy discussions, eggs-on-a-stick with CEP representatives

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) representatives this past weekend took part in a whirlwind of activities out at the three-day Pedal the Plains.

CEP Executive Director Bill Scebbi, CEP Industry Relations Manager David Collie, and CEP Outreach Events Coordinator Terri Heine – along with her husband, Jerry – engaged in great conversations about agriculture and all things eggs with the 1,200 riders who participated in the event.

And thanks to Terri’s hard work in the kitchen, the CEP group also served up thousands of bite-sized egg treats, including CEP’s famous eggs-on-a-stick.

Pedal the Plains serves as an opportunity for cyclists to learn about farming, ranching and other rural industries, while also experiencing the unique culture, history and landscape of Eastern Plains communities.

And each year, CEP and a number of other ag organizations use the event to connect face-to-face with the many urban residents who participate in the bike ride.

In the whirlwind of a new school year, let the nutritious, versatile egg be of service

We’ve entered an exciting time of the year for many families, as the late summer and early fall is witness to kids storming back into the classrooms and into the many activities that accompany the school year.    

However, it can no doubt be an overwhelming time for parents, with the calendar rapidly filling up quickly on youth-focused time commitments, and while also trying to address the many aspects that can determine a child’s performance in school.

There’s not one single solution that can bring calm to this frenzy, but – as crazy as this might sound – the incredible, edible egg can certainly be of service.   

Parents and educators know that children perform better in class and in afterschool activities if they’re consuming nutritious and protein-rich meals. This vital component of a student’s life has even been the focus of policy at the highest levels of government in recent years, with school-meal programs at the center of much political discussion.
