Hi Blog Readers:
One of the cool benefits of being a FoodBuzz Featured Publisher is that every so often I receive food to taste, cook with and review for you! Last week I received a coupon from FoodBuzz and Egg-Land’s Best Eggs.
This was especially exciting for me because I love cooking with eggs… I love omelettes! I love egg sandwiches! Breakfast burritos… there are so many ways to make eggs! I have to say I do not usually buy Egg-Land’s Best because they are a little bit pricey, when compared to other eggs at the market. But I know that they are the best. The chicken they raise are on a strictly vegetarian diet, which I think is great. The eggs from Egg-Land’s Best have less saturated fat (yay!) The best part (I think) is that Egg-Land’s Best eggs have less cholesterol than traditional eggs (Egg-Land egg: 175 mg cholesterol; Traditional Egg: 213 mg cholesterol). Eggs are really high in important vitamins, too. They are a relatively cheap and easy way to get protein into your diet (who needs red meat!?)
Tonight I opened my coveted carton of eggs:
I mixed one egg in a small bowl:
Added garlic powder, a pinch of salt, a few cranks of freshly ground pepper. First I sauteed a handful of spinach. I removed the spinach and then added my spiced up egg. Final product on a whole wheat wrap with a palmful of light Mexican cheese, a a teaspoon (?) of ketchup and a splash of hot sauce:
On the side of breakfast burrito for dinner I had about half a cup of my homemade coleslaw (Bittman!!) I love this coleslaw and on top of that, my mom read an article yesterday that said cabbage is a super healthy food. Yum.
It all turned out really well, and it was a healthy dinner. I loved it and I really like Egg-land’s Best Eggs.
