A Fresh Start to Each Day Includes Farm-Fresh Eggs
With each new day comes a fresh new beginning and an opportunity to make small strides toward eating and living better. Rather than diving into a full-fledged overhaul and setting unrealistic resolutions, commit to making three small, yet realistic, lifestyle changes.
1. Eat Wholesome Foods
Let’s begin with the first, and arguably most important, meal of the day: breakfast! To tackle the long list of achievements for the day, our bodies must have adequate fuel. When grocery shopping this spring, start with the basics to create a solid foundation for breakfast dishes.
LAND O LAKES All-Natural Farm-Fresh Eggs offer a premium, yet affordable, option that is ideal for wholesome breakfast dishes. LAND O LAKES EGGS come in four specialty varieties: Farm-Fresh All-Natural, Cage-Free All-Natural, All-Natural with 160mg ALA Omega-3, and Organic All-Natural. The eggs are produced by hens fed a high-quality, all-vegetable, whole-grain diet rich in corn and soy protein, with no animal fat or animal by-products. Eggs are gathered at the peak of the hens’ egg-laying cycle, which ensures that the eggs are as nutritious and delicious as possible. And, for the All-Natural Eggs with 160mg ALA Omega-3 per egg, the whole grain feed consumed by our hens is enriched with omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed, making each egg a good source of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) omega-3 fatty acids (providing 160 mg, or 10 percent of the daily recommended intake for this nutrient).
Eggs are an excellent source of protein (6 grams per egg) as well, and can help the family get off on the right foot in the morning. To get out of a breakfast rut, try a new twist on beloved breakfast recipes from the Land O’Lakes Test Kitchen.
Breakfast Scramble Wrap: Begin by combining sour cream and salsa in a small bowl. Pour a mixture of eggs, seasoned with mustard, salt and pepper into a skillet to cook. Top with sour cream, salsa and cheese. Serve wrapped in warm tortillas.
Broccoli & Mushroom Frittata: Sauté mushrooms and onions until tender. Add eggs and cook until almost set. Arrange red pepper strips and broccoli on top of eggs. Top with shredded cheese and serve in wedges.
Garden Scramble: Add fresh flavors by sautéing vegetables with garlic. Beat eggs, water, salt and pepper in a bowl and cook over vegetables in skillet. Serve with a sprinkling of cheese.
2. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
Make other small steps like committing to reuse and recycle goods in the home to help the environment. Simple changes to the daily routine, such as taking reusable bags to the grocery store and carpooling to work, can make an impact.
LAND O LAKES Specialty Eggs come in environmentally sustainable packaging made entirely from recycled paper. The packaging can be recycled with paper products in many communities across the United States.
In addition to being made from recycled paper, the packaging cushions and protects the eggs, while maintaining their freshness and quality during their journey from farm to grocery store to table. The recyclable fiber packaging:
* Allows the eggs to breathe
* Absorbs condensation
* Remains stable when opened and closed
* Cushions against shocks
* Creates a dry climate that helps prevent mold formation
* Allows eggs to remain stable throughout a wide range of temperatures (15 degrees F to 95 degrees F)
3. Connect with Friends and Family
Take time to create new memories with friends and families each day. Call your mother. Invite friends over for brunch. Eat breakfast with the family in the morning. A refrigerator stocked with LAND O LAKES All-Natural Farm-Fresh Eggs will ensure that breakfast served for those you love is always fresh, delicious and wholesome.
