EB Mine Brunch

Usually I like to teach by doing.  When I introduce new foods to my parents, I don't give them a lesson on why they should want to incorporate it into their diet or the health benefits of it.  Instead, I'll cook up something tasty, and if they enjoy it (which is often the case), they'll start to use it themselves.

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 ;)

B certainly enjoyed his egg!

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!

i scramble egg whites with horseradish for flavor, and skip the butter for my heart

Cara said...

Your menu sounds incredible! Can't wait to see the recipes. Coincidentally we had a heart-healthy egg dinner tonight: falafel "benedict". Poached eggs over falafel and spinach with my hummus "benny" sauce. Chickpeas = heart healthy and delish!

I would say my favorite pairing (bacon) is not very heart-healthy, but I do love veggie omelets.

Carol said...

I like to add spinach and flax to my eggs, really great flavor!

I add egg whites to my oatmeal for extra fluffiness and protein

You know that I love eggs too! I love a simple poached egg over warm sauteed spinach and garlic. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. :-)

Mmm, eggs. I have an egg white scramble many days of the week. Right now, there are three 18-egg cartons in my fridge. My boyfriend was questioning why I need so many, but dude, we eat eggs all the time!

Elizabeth said...

Horchata dutch baby, whaaaaat??!

Joanne said...

Your brunch menu sounds DELICIOUS! I want that roulade. The filling sounds like everything I love all rolled up into a pretty hypnotic spiral of delicious.
