Eggs are wonderful! Pearly white or light saddle tan in color, hen’s eggs are one of the most valuableeggs
foods we can eat, cost-wise and nutritionally. Each is its own unit and very transportable. They’re also an excellent source of protein, vitamins D and B12. Eggs play many healthful roles in our bodies as an excellent source for dealing with brain function, muscle strength and weight management. It’s also a healthy food for pregnant moms.

Eggs even act like baking power or yeast when it comes to raising cakes. Purchase eggs in various sizes from small to jumbo. Store in their original carton, in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
