  • Any meal can be built around eggs. They’re not just for breakfast anymore. Eggs are one of the best sources of protein, packed with 6 grams each. They are low in calories and a good source of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin B12, D and choline.
    This coffee cup scramble is a favorite for any meal. It works as a fun breakfast activity at slumber parties or a quick breakfast at your desk. It also makes a great snack after school or a light dinner before the kid’s game. Add some fruit, low-fat milk and whole grain toast for a balanced meal.
