The “Incredible Edible Egg” is one of the healthiest all-natural foods being packed with a number of nutrients.
One egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals in varying amounts, high-quality protein, unsaturated fats and antioxidants, all for 70 calories.
There are hundreds of variations of eggs. Treat yourself to a nice Eggs Benedict or maybe visit IowaEgg.org for some great recipes ranging from omelets to desserts.
While the eggs that Americans typically consume come from chickens, a wide range of poultry (like ducks and geese) provide tasty gourmet egg varieties. Quail eggs, for example, are considered a delicacy in many countries.
