Egg-straordinary Eggs

Not only are eggs a protein powerhouse, but the yolk is also jam-packed with some serious superpowers! 💪 Check out these egg-stra benefits:

✨ Immune-Boosting Zinc & Selenium: Move over, cold season! These nutrients found in the yolk are here to amp up your immune system and keep you feeling egg-stra strong all year round.

✨ Bone-Building Vitamin D: Forget the milk mustache, it's all about the egg yolk grin! With vitamin D, these hard boiled gems are here to help you build strong bones and teeth.

✨ Brain-Optimizing Choline: Eggs aren't just for breakfast, they're also brain fuel! Choline in the yolk is here to optimize your noggin, keeping you sharp and egg-stra smart.

✨ Eye-Enhancing Lutein: Who needs carrots when you've got eggs? The yolk contains lutein, a nutrient that's all about keeping your peepers in tip-top shape.

So skip the egg-scuses and make hard boiled eggs a regular in your fridge. 🐣🍳😂

They really are an egg- straordinary addition to your everyday diet. I’m cracking myself up here! And speaking of cracking…

Cracking Open the Yolk Myth

🍳😉 You may have heard that yolks are "bad" for the heart, but guess what? According to the American Heart Association, that's just a bunch of yolky baloney! Yolks are NOT the enemy.

In fact, they're an egg-straordinary source of nutrients and whole eggs can absolutely be part of a heart-healthy diet. So don't be afraid to embrace the golden goodness of yolks. ONE egg every day is perfectly fine.

Eggscellent Tips

When it comes to having hardboiled eggs on hand and ready to eat at all times:

Boil up a whole dozen at once FOR THE WEEK and keep them in the shells until you're ready to chow.

Or, if you're in a hurry, no need to scramble around. You can always snag some pre-hard boiled eggs for quick and easy meals or snacks.
