After you color them … EAT THEM! They are good for you

after you color them, eat themThe poor little egg. It has gotten such a bad rap over the years. There were years when healthy eaters shunned the idea of the incredible edible … but that was when we were confused about cholesterol. Yes, eggs have a lot of cholesterol, but we have learned that this type of cholesterol is much less damaging than foods high in saturated fats. Eggs are relatively low in calories, are an amazing source of protein, high in disease fighting nutrients, reduce the risk of macular degeneration and may improve brain development and memory. Eggs are a great way to stave off hunger if you are trying to lose weight, a quick and easy way to feed picky eaters and can serve as an inexpensive meal option — even for dinner.

So, this year, when you are coloring your eggs and your kids are begging o do some more, let them. You can feel good about not letting them go to waste.
