Eggs are one of those rare foods that seem to do it all: They provide an array of health benefits because they're high in protein and low in calories, and they can be prepared in many different ways.
For example, scrambled eggs are a breakfast favorite, and by far the most popular dish at that early morning meal. For lunch or snack time, hard-boiled eggs are a crowd pleaser and a provide quick pop of protein on a busy day. For parties and get-togethers, deviled eggs are a must-have appetizer or side dish.
While some studies show that eating too many eggs in a week can be linked to higher cholesterol (check out the egg's carton for nutritional facts), people around the world still buy millions of eggs every year because they love their taste and versatility.
And, if you or a family member have dietary restrictions, Tom Thumb also offers organic and fat-free eggs, as well as egg substitutes.
