Cooking Light’s Healthy Options for Egg Breakfasts

Eggs are good for you, but they are often scorned for the company they keep, including hash browns, full-fat cheese, and bacon. When you’re dining out, side dishes, sauces, and added fat used to make eggs can add hundreds of unnecessary calories to your favorite menu items. But that’s no reason to shy away from eggs, which are relatively low in calories, packed with high quality protein, vitamin and minerals, and choline, which is necessary for your child’s developing brain during pregnancy and infancy.

This Cooking Light piece offers great suggestions about healthier egg dishes in restaurants. When you’re making eggs at home, always use fortified eggs for the greatest benefit. Eggland’s Best eggs provide 10 times the vitamin E, triple the vitamin B12, and twice the vitamin D of regular eggs. Eggland’s Best also supply double the omega-3 fats, which are necessary for peak brain development and vision in developing babies and young children.
