Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month? It's a great reminder of how important it is to eat a healthy diet and get adequate exercise. When it comes to diet and deciding how to eat healthy, eggs have been a source of confusion. Are they healthy, or not, for a nutritional diet? That is the question many have asked. According to NestFresh.com, “Eggs are a complete protein, meaning they have every amino acid your body needs. They have iron, calcium, and every vitamin, except Vitamin C.”
What about the cholesterol in eggs? NestFresh.com states that, “. . . Dietary cholesterol has much less impact on serum blood cholesterol levels than previously theorized. Most nutritionists will tell you that if you want to lower your cholesterol levels, removing cholesterol and fat from your diet is not the way. It is more important to avoid hydrogenated fats, trans fats and saturated fats specifically.”
You Can Feel Good About NestFresh Eggs
NestFresh eggs are high quality and come from hens that are free from hormones and antibiotics. Their hens are also free-range, non-GMO, and treated humanely, so you can feel good when purchasing and eating NestFresh products. NestFresh's motto is: “Humane, sustainable eggs produced at family farms across the country.” I do feel better buying products from the family farms, especially the ones that produce NestFresh eggs, because they are truly dedicated to providing a quality product. And, they provide a quality life for the hens, too.
In addition to shell eggs, NestFresh also produces liquid and hard-cooked eggs. Where can you buy their products? Go here to see a list and map of where their products are sold.
You can also check out their website. It's quite educational. I especially like their “Get Egg-ducated (FAQ)” section, which answers a lot of questions I've often thought about, but didn't know the answers to. For example: “If an egg floats, is it bad?” or “What is that red spot in my egg?” I can't tell you how many eggs I have thrown away because of that red spot. But, after reading about why it's there, I no longer feel the need to throw them out. Click on the above link to learn more fascinating facts about eggs!
