Include Eggs in New Year's Resolutions to Achieve Health Goals

Friday, January 6, 2012

New Year’s, a holiday symbolic for fresh beginnings, is a time for people around the world to reflect on the year and set goals for the future. A few of the most popular New Year’s resolutions are to eat healthier, exercise more and lose weight. Those who pursue these admirable feats can prime themselves for success by including one staple in their daily diets: eggs. Often overlooked as a powerhouse of nutrition, one egg provides essential nutrients and high quality protein necessary to help you achieve and maintain health goals year round.

“The nutrients in eggs provide vitamins and minerals that protect against chronic disease and also supply the quality protein necessary for muscle development,” said Terry Tormohlen, a Colorado egg farmer and member of the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association. “If eaten for breakfast, they keep you alert all day and when enjoyed after a workout, they help build muscle mass. Additionally, buying eggs locally produced by CEP members ensures that you and your family are enjoying a safe and wholesome product. We encourage you to continue to support your Colorado egg farmers and buy local.”
