When it comes to eggs, people usually don’t pay much attention to what they buy even though eggs have been in the spotlight over these past few years!

Do you know that:

Fresh eggs can be stored in a refrigerator for four to five weeks beyond the packed on date.

If you find you have left over egg whites, you can freeze them in a flexible ice cube tray, seal them in an air-tight bag and then use them as needed. Defrost them by placing the egg whites into a bowl and place this bowl into another bowl filled with hot water.

Eggs are unique in that they contain every nutrient known to be essential to humans. The reason for this is that nature designed it as a total life support system for a developing chick. Add to this that eggs are economical and you have a near perfect food!

Of course you can eat chickens eggs but you can also eat quail eggs, duck
eggs and turkey eggs.

One ostrich egg is equal to twenty to twenty four large chicken eggs!!
