DENVER – July 2016 – To celebrate National Picnic Month this July, Colorado Egg Producers Association (CEP) invites you to learn about all the ways you can add eggs to your summer menu when packing a picnic and preparing on-the-go foods. Whether you are planning a family vacation, sending the kids off to summer camp or enjoying a day by the pool, eggs are a delicious and nutritious addition to your day.
“One large egg contains six grams of high-quality protein, plus many essential vitamins and minerals, in only 70 calories.” said Brandy Gamoning, marketing manager for NestFresh and CEP member. “Eggs can fill your picnic basket with the nutritious fuel your body needs, including Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, choline and all 9 essential amino acids. Plus, eggs are naturally gluten free, have zero carbs and no sugar.”
