Recipes From Your Heart with Eggland's Best

Did you know February is American Heart Month? Well, it is, and I think it's a great opportunity to learn more about heart healthy living, including in the kitchen. And since February is also the "month of love", it's also a great time to serve your family a great tasting meal made with love, using Eggland's Best Eggs.

By using Eggland's Best eggs in your next recipe (Maybe even this one!), you are getting a high quality egg that has better taste, less saturated fat, and more nutrition. Have you tried EB's eggs before? If so, you know exactly what I'm talking about!  And if you haven't let me give you a few more reasons why they are a great addition to your everyday cooking and eating. Compared to other eggs, Eggland's Best eggs contain:
10 times more Vitamin E
Double the amount of Omega-3's
Twice the amount of Vitamin D
3 times more Vitamin B12
25% less Saturated Fat
38% more Lutein

I don't know about you, but when I read things like that, it makes me happy to know I can feel good about giving my family something they love so much, like eggs, and still feel really good about what we are putting into our bodies. 

If you are always on the hunt for new breakfast or brunch ideas, than you will love this one. Or, if like us, one of your favorite things is breakfast for supper, this can easily be a simple weeknight meal; and one I think even the little ones will love. It has some very familiar flavors (think pizza) I suspect they will really enjoy, and be surprised you can get in a breakfast food! 

Oh, and my good friends at Eggland's Best has a pretty cool giveaway for one lucky EMM reader too! Just scroll down after the recipe for all the details!

This month, let's all try a little harder to remember our hearts, how hard they work for us, and do anything we can to make their job a little easier by living a more heart friendly life.
