May is National Egg Month!
PUT AN EGG ON IT
Now is a great time to think about diet and lifestyle choices to help reduce the risk for heart disease. Adding eggs to your diet can be an important first step. One egg per day is associated with a 12% reduction in the risk of having a stroke. Try adding that whole egg to your salad, as it will increase vitamin E absorption. Vitamin E is needed for the proper function of many body organs, especially the heart. Overall adding at least one to three eggs per day is associated with many positive health outcomes, such as increased blood levels of antioxidants and increased HDL (the good cholesterol) levels.

HOW EATING AN EGG AFFECTS HEALTH
AN EGG DISH A DAY
Does your idea for cooking with an egg include either "scrambled" or "fried" in the recipe title? We love a light fluffly plate of scrambled eggs with brunch on Sunday, but we also like to experiment with eggs in all kinds of dishes. To highlight the egg, for each day this month we are going to highlight a favorite egg dish of ours. Check back each Monday for another week's worth of recipes.
