Top 5 Reasons To Love Eggs & How to Use Them

Eggs are incredibly nutrient dense

Just one egg contains 13 essential vitamins and minerals-- including those hard to get B vitamins like B2, B5, B12 and D, zinc, choline, lutein, and iron. One egg will also deliver about 6g of protein - enough for a "good source" for one serving. Even better, eggs contain all nine essential amino acids, making them a “complete” source of protein. All this for around 70 calories!


Eggs are incredible versatile 

Whether they are used a binding agent in a baked good, hard boiled in salad, or scrambled up for breakfast, there is an endless possibility of uses for the incredible egg.  We love using them in Appleton's Market Power Veggie Bites because they create the perfect texture and truly deliver on nutrition, taste, and satisfaction.

Eggs pack all the right fats

One egg only has around 5g of fat. They also contain healthy levels of omega-3 fatty acids (aka good fats) and the combination of these healthy fats and the natural protein from the egg is a powerhouse combo! Pair a scrambled or over easy egg with mashed avocado, lemon, cumin, salt and toast and you have a perfect meal. 


Eggs are real food 

Eggs come unprocessed in their natural forms - no need to alter them at all! This means a fresher, purer product for your body and a choose your own adventure for how you'd like to eat them. We love sautéing up some fresh veggies with scrambled and eggs and spices for a perfect heart-healthy meal.

Eggs are diet and lifestyle friendly 

Other than vegan, eggs fit into any diet and lifestyle! They are a perfect protein for those sticking to a vegetarian or flexitarian lifestyle, and are always low carb/high protein and grain free for those keeping to keto or gluten free diets (all of which Power Veggie Bites fit for too)
