Eggs and Easter go hand in hand, but there’s more to these tiny bundles of protein-packed goodness than you might think.
According to the Colorado Department of Agriculture, “The incredible edible egg packs a lot of nutrition in a small package. One egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants, all for about 70 calories.” And since you can get them for anywhere from $2 to $5 a dozen (depending on whether you want extra-large, organic, free-range, etc.), they cost about 20 to 40 cents each.
If you like eggs, they make an inexpensive breakfast that will get you through the morning. If you don’t like them plain – fried, scrambled, boiled or poached – there are many other ways to employ and enjoy these cheap eats.
