The Facts About Eggs

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on November 29, 2010

As November comes to an end so does my partnership with Eggland’s Best and the Pink Dozen. I know that I’ve brought to your attention the great things Eggland’s Best is doing for breast cancer research, through their generous donations to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Eggs are a fantastic source of protein and most of us know that they contain a myriad of vitamins and nutrients vital to a healthy lifestyle. But, have I told you how incredibly nutritious Eggland’s Best eggs are?

See for yourself how Eggland’s Best eggs compare to “ordinary” eggs. It’s quite remarkable, really.

Eggland’s Best eggs contain 10 times more Vitamin E than ordinary eggs, four times more Vitamin D, 115mg of Omega 3, shown to be beneficial to cardiac health, 25% less Saturated Fat, 75% more Vitamin B12, over 50% more Vitamin A, 15% more Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), 200 mcg of Lutein, shown to contribute to eye health, and 10% of the daily recommended intake of folic acid.  In addition, one Eggland’s Best large white egg contains just 175mg of Cholesterol compared to 215mg in an ordinary egg.

If all of that is not reason enough to make eggs – more specifically Eggland’s Best eggs – a big part of your diet, check out the post I wrote a couple of years back that lists a dozen reasons eggs why you should love eggs. You’re sure to find a few more good reasons to get cracking!

Eggland’s Best Holiday Baking Party

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on November 21, 2010

On Friday some of my best friends and I spent the entire afternoon doing one of our favorite things – baking! Eggland’s Best sponsored this fabulous baking party and we even had door prizes! We made Quiche, Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies and homemade ice cream, all with Eggland’s Best eggs. (See recipes below.)

QUICHE

Line pie pan with pie dough and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer with grated cheese, sauteed spinach, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions and diced tomatoes. Pour mixture of 6 Eggland’s Best eggs and 1/4 cup milk. Bake at 375º for 45 minutes.

VANILLA ICE CREAM

Beat 2 Eggland’s Best eggs in a large bowl until thick and lemon-colored (about 5 minutes). Add 1 cup sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Stir in 2 3/4 cup half & half, 1 tablespoon vanilla and 1 cup whipping cream and pour in to ice cream canister. Follow manufacturer’s directions. Makes 2 quarts.

Holiday Baking with Eggland’s Best

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on November 3, 2010

Eggland's Best, breast cancerIt’s November and with November comes the beginning of the Holiday rush, with Thanksgiving right around the corner and Christmas soon to follow. I know I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know, but this time of year brings lots and lots of baking for the Youngs. Boy, do I look forward to the sweet aromas that will fill our home!

Eggland’s Best Eggs will be used in all of our Holiday recipes, not only because of their great taste, but also because they are packed with more vitamins than other eggs on the market AND they contain less cholesterol than all other brands.

In addition, I am happy to report that Eggland’s Best is continuing their support of Breast Cancer Awareness with their generous donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and their pink ribbon stamped eggs through November. This alone would be reason enough to purchase these  tasty eggs, but the deliciousness and health benefits are an added bonus, don’t you think?

I plan to share some of my favorite recipes in the weeks to come, but would love to hear about YOUR favorites, too. Will you give Eggland’s Best a try in your recipes this Holiday season? Trust me, you won’t be sorry!

The “Pink Dozen” Help #FightBreastCancer

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on September 30, 2010

Somewhere in the world a woman dies from breast cancer every 69 seconds.

Wow.

It saddens me to know that every single one of us have been effected in some way by this awful reality. Maybe you have beat breast cancer or know and love someone who has suffered from it.

Today you can show the world the power of pink by uploading your photo to the Susan G. Komen mosaic. Or, you can sign the petition to show your support in making cancer a global priority.

It only takes 69 seconds to help #fightbreastcancer.

Tomorrow – the first day of October – begins National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I am excited to say that I have teamed up with Eggland’s Best as one of their Pink Dozen ambassadors.

Not only is Eggland’s Best going pink this month by placing an official pink ribbon stamp on EB packaging (as well as on each individual egg!), but they have also made a $50,000 donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help #fightbreastcancer!
