It’s no secret that eggs are traditionally served as part of a well-rounded breakfast. They’re scrambled, boiled and poached to perfection as the ideal match for bacon and toast on countless plates every morning. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association would like to remind you that eggs are also a delicious choice for lunch, dinner and snacks – and are a healthier alternative to calorie-laden meal options like burgers and fries.
“Eggs are one of the most versatile foods to cook with, in addition to being one of the most nutritious,” said Mike O’Connor, a Colorado farmer and CEP member. “They’re typically viewed as a breakfast item, but they’re perfect for any meal or snack of the day. If you’re looking for a substitute for meat, eggs are one of the highest-quality proteins available.”
