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.
“With the weather warming up, many people are spending more time outside doing activities such as hiking, biking and swimming,” Jerry Wilkins, president of CEP. “We need the essential nutrients and protein found in eggs to fuel our bodies as we get outside and get active.”
One large egg contains six grams of high-quality protein in only 70 calories. Eggs also contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral your body needs. All of the nutrients found in eggs play a role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health and more. Fuel your body with a healthy diet, including eggs, so you can enjoy the beautiful weather and fun outdoor activities spring and summer offer.
