Eggs. They’re what’s for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. And snacktime. And dessert. My favorite eggs are in dessert… cupcakes, creme brulee… Eggs make every meal more delicious and nutritious.

Wow! I love eggs, but I don’t eat that many! LOL! I was thinking of incorporating more eggs whites into my diet!

I bet I eat 500 eggs a year, especially when I think about how many different items I make have eggs as ingredients.

My family eats a lot of eggs, but I haven’t a clue how many over the period of a year.

If the average person consumes 250 eggs a year, then i’m above average! I try to eat an egg (or two) for breakfast each morning. The best protein ever. I also loved the fact on the infographic that said 3.8 million Colorado Hens produce about 1 billion eggs. Wowzers!
