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.
