The Importance of a Good Breakfast: Ten Reasons Why Eggs Should Be Part of Your Morning Routine

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

The hustle and bustle of everyday life has many Americans rushing to get things done, especially in the morning. We rush to get the kids ready for the day and to get to work on time – as a result we often rush out the door without eating a balanced breakfast. Pressed for time and out of healthy options, we opt for pastries or breakfast bars that more closely resemble dessert than breakfast food. The choice to go entirely without breakfast or grab something less than desirable on the go can impact us long after our morning commutes. Fortunately, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association is here to share the healthy, affordable and convenient answer to morning madness – eggs!

Colorado Farmers Donate 300,000 Eggs in Time for Easter

Monday, April 25, 2011

As children across America dip white-shelled eggs into vinegar-and-dye tubs, a group of Colorado egg producers has donated hundreds of thousands of eggs to that state's hungriest residents.

The Colorado Egg Producers Association, a coalition of seven egg farms, has given more than 300,000 eggs to four Colorado food banks. This Easter marks the fourth annual egg-giving.

"As egg farmers, we feel it is important for us to provide eggs year round, especially during these tough economic times," CEP's Jerry Wilkins said in a press release.

"At two eggs per person, our donation will help put high quality, wholesome and fresh eggs on the plates of more than 150,000 Coloradans this Easter."

The Food Bank of the Rockies, one of the beneficiaries of the egg largess, hosted the CEP and the Easter Bunny at a celebratory event Tuesday. CEP members cooked omelets for the crowd.

The food bank says they're feeding 37-thousand people a month on the Western slope, and almost half of them are children.
