    Eggs are a versatile and easy-to-work-with ingredient that provide fuel for your busy lives. Sweet or savoury, baked or fried, boiled or scrambled, there really is no limit to what you can do with them! As if that wasn’t enough of a selling point, eggs also have a number of other benefits…

    Benefits of eggs

    1. High in protein, which makes them the perfect post-workout or exercise option
    2. High in Vitamin D, which Irish people (through no fault of our own) tend to be lacking in!
    3. Contains nutrients including vitamin A, B vitamins, iron, selenium, zinc, and iodine.

    When to eat them

    One of our favourite things about eggs is that you can eat them at literally any time of day! Here’s a few of our favourite egg recipes for different meals…
