Colorado egg farmers invite Coloradans to celebrate Colorado Proud Month

Friday, August 22, 2014

DENVER – August 2014 – Colorado is a powerhouse of agriculture, bringing delicious, healthy produce such as Palisade peaches, Rocky Ford melons and Olathe sweet corn to Coloradans’ taste buds this season. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association, a membership organization representing seven farms, wants to remind Coloradans that in addition to seasonal fruits and vegetables, eggs are a food staple that shoppers can buy locally and enjoy year-round.

“Thinking about where food comes and buying locally is a high priority for many people today,” said Jerry Wilkins, president of CEP. “By purchasing Colorado-produced food, available at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants across the state, Coloradans can trust that they are getting quality food while supporting local producers. For example, when you purchase locally produced eggs, you are not only getting high-quality fresh products, you are also supporting Colorado's farmers, ranchers, processors and the state’s economy.”

DENVER - June 2014 - With the protein and nutrients they provide, it’s no wonder eggs are a go-to breakfast food for many people around the world. Eggs provide the long-lasting energy needed to keep people going strong until lunch. And with so many ways to cook them – scrambled, hardboiled, fried, sunny side up – it’s easy to see why so many choose to start their day with eggs. But did you know that eggs could be a healthy, tasty option any time of day? With fewer calories, trans fats and sugars than your typical junk food snacks and fast food meals, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association wants you to know that eggs are a nutritious alternative for many of your daily meals.

“Eggs are extremely versatile to cook with, making it easy to work them into lunch, dinner and everything in between,” said Dave Turunjian, a Colorado egg farmer and member of CEP. “Though many view eggs as strictly a breakfast food, eggs can add high quality protein and essential vitamins, with minimal calories, to your other meals as well.”
