Whether you are making plans to enjoy a family bike ride, scale a 14er or spend the day by the pool, eggs are a delicious and nutritious way to “fuel your fun” this spring and summer. For National Egg Month this May, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association offers a new way to hard-boil eggs and invites Coloradans to enjoy DTC Eats, an egg-citing summer event.

Get Healthy This New Year With the Incredible, Edible Egg

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

This month the United States Department of Agriculture released its 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which dropped the long-standing daily limit on the dietary cholesterol found in eggs and other foods. Coloradans trying to get their health back on track after the feasts and treats of the holiday season will benefit from adding eggs to a balanced diet, thanks to the high-quality protein and essential vitamins eggs provide. Whether you want to lose weight, get fit or just feel better this New Year, make sure eggs are on your plate this year.

Though eggs have previously been thought to increase blood cholesterol and risk for heart disease, years of research has shown that dietary cholesterol has little to no impact on blood cholesterol levels. The new Dietary Guidelines confirms that healthy adults can eat eggs regularly without significantly impacting their risk of heart disease. Further, it encourages Americans to eat eggs as part of its recommended healthy eating patterns.
