Eggland's Best eggs are both nutritious and delicious!
One of the most underrated health foods of all time has got to be those protein-packed morsels of yummy goodness known as eggs (I did a YouTube video on these recently). They're inexpensive, readily available, and chock full of so many healthy benefits for those who consume them. But not all eggs are created equal which is why I'm pleased to tell you about Eggland's Best eggs.
Without the use of any hormones or antibiotics, Eggland's Best creates superior quality eggs thanks to a nutrient-dense diet designed specifically for maximizing the vitamins and minerals that are produced in each egg. The difference you receive from these eggs is startling, too:
- 7 TIMES more of the antioxidant Vitamin E than regular eggs
- 3 TIMES more essential omega 3 fatty acids for heart health than regular eggs
- 185 mcg of lutein for excellent eye health
- Studies show eating eggs lowers calorie consumption
- Studies also show that eggs fill you up
What makes these healthy eggs even better is the fresh taste that comes from being shipped directly to supermarkets within 1-2 days after they are laid. Eggland's Best eggs have been named the Best Tasting Egg Award from American Culinary Chefs Best for the past 5 years in a row (2002-2007) and Woman's Health Magazine identified Eggland's Best as the "Best Eggs" in their September 2007 issue. Additionally, ShapeYou.com gave Eggland's Best a "Great Gear Of The Year" award in 2007.
With all these accolades, you would think a company like Eggland's Best would be going around boasting of their accomplishments and thumping their chest for producing superior products for a discriminating consumer. But they don't have to do that when the quality speaks for itself. These eggs are AWESOME and you really ought to try 'em for yourself to experience the difference.
