You bet we will get down with Easter Brunch. Easter Brunch is one of the best gatherings because it revolves around one of our favorite foods and an important one to our health at that– the egg.
“Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat than the yolk. Eggs are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper” -BBC Good Food
