Beyond breakfast: eggs for lunch, dinner, snacks and more

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Nothing wakes you up in the morning quite like a cup of coffee and a plate of eggs, bacon and toast. Considered a breakfast staple in many kitchens around the world, eggs provide the nutrition and long lasting energy needed to make it until lunchtime. Whether they’re scrambled, hard-boiled, poached or sunny side up, everyone’s got their favorite egg dish to wake up with. But did you know that eggs are a tasty option at many other times of the day? With less calories, trans fats and sugars than your typical fast food meals, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association wants you to know that eggs are a nutritious alternative for any meal or snack.

“Eggs are one of the most versatile foods to cook with, in addition to being one of the most nutritious,” said Terry Tormohlen, a Colorado farmer and CEP member. “Typically viewed as a breakfast item, they’re also perfect for any meal or snack during the day. If you’re looking for a substitute for meat, eggs provide the highest-quality proteins available.”
