Seasonal Feature: Eggs
Easter & eggs go hand-in-hand, so what better time of year to feature these little nutritional power-houses.
Eggs are full of high quality protein, 11 different vitamins & minerals, healthy fats (including omega-3) and recent research shows eating eggs has very little effect on blood cholesterol levels.
Incorporate them into your diet with lovely poached eggs for breakfast, easy frittatas for lunch or dinner, and of course, in all those wonderful home-baked cakes!
The best way to store eggs is in their carton, in the fridge. An egg at room temperate ages 7 times quicker than a refrigerated one, and the carton reduces water loss & protects the eggs from absorbing flavours from other foods.
If the kids want to decorate hardboiled eggs and then enjoy them for Easter lunch - it is best to use eggs which are a few days old. The fresher the egg, the more likely the white will stick to the shell!
