Wake up to Eggs during Farmhouse Breakfast Week

22/01/2010

There are now more reasons than ever to celebrate Farmhouse Breakfast Week 2010, with a series of studies proving that eggs are not only a versatile and nutritious way to warm up winter mornings, but they are also packed with health benefits.

In addition to recent research which dispelled the myths surrounding eggs and cholesterol, two studies in America indicate the satiating properties of eggs can be used as a weapon in the weight loss war. So not only have the limits been lifted on egg consumption, but people trying to lose weight or maintain their figures should be actively encouraged to include more eggs in their diet.

Whether you prefer them poached, scrambled, boiled with soldiers or combined with a few leftovers to make an omelette, they are quick, easy and taste delicious. And with two eggs costing less than 50p, they are perfect for people trying to watch their wallet as well as their waistline.

Always use eggs bearing the British Lion mark, which guarantees that they have been produced to the highest standards of food safety.  All Lion Quality eggs come from British hens vaccinated against salmonella, are fully traceable and have a ‘best before’ date on the shell as a guarantee of freshness.
