Today's an exception.
Why, you might ask? Well, Eggland's Best asked me if I'd be interested in hosting an "EB Mine" Brunch to help raise awareness for American Heart Month (that's February, folks). Is my name Shannon? Of course! I love eggs! I love my heart! I love brunch!
So here it goes. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among men and women in the US. The easiest way to cut your odds of a heart attack? Not smoking, daily exercise and proper nutrition. This is where EB eggs come in. A great lean protein source, EB eggs also contain more than double the amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids (heart healthy!) and Vitamin D, and ten times more Vitamin E (associated with reduced risk of heart disease!).
Who's going to say no to an egg-centric brunch now? Especially when the menu touts an Egg Roulade (with Roasted Sweet Potato & Goat Cheese and Black Bean Avocado Puree), Meyer Lemon Cranberry Scones and an Horchata Dutch Baby with sauteed bananas and dulce de leche.
I didn't think so! You'll have to wait for the recipes, but in the mean time... check out Eggland's Best on Facebook for some other egg-cellent ideas ;)

In addition to providing me with an "EB Mine" Box, VIP coupons and $100 to host the brunch, Eggland's Best is going to give you a chance to win your own Box full of 2 FREE EB Dozen coupons, 1 FREE EB Hard Cooked & Peeled and a bunch of EB goodies (apron, spatula, whisk, cutting board, mixing bowl, scraper, coffee mug, tote bag, plush egg). To enter, all you have to do is tell me, what heart healthy ingredient do you like to pair with EB eggs?? Contest ends Wed, Feb 29th!
