I was on my computer the other day while Bev was watching her regular afternoon show (The Doctors) where a group of doctors discuss a variety of health and medical issues, when the subject of eggs came up and it caught my attention. If you stop by here fairly often, you know I've been known to eat the occasional egg and I can't remember exactly what the doctor said but it was something along the lines of - new studuies have shown that eggs are really very good for you (the ninja food).

Did you have eggs for breakfast this morning? There are endless recipes for great tasting dishes with eggs, so there's no reason you can't enjoy them for breakfast every day.
Eggs are all-natural and packed with a number of nutrients. One egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals in varying amounts, high-quality protein, unsaturated fats and antioxidants, all for 70 calories.
Eggs' nutrients can help you with weight management, muscle strength, eye health, brain function and having a healthy pregnancy. Particularly important for aiding healthy brain function and pregnancy is choline (pronounced KOH-leen), which is amply present in eggs.
Eggs are the perfect choice for breakfast. The protein in eggs provides steady and sustained energy that starts your day off right. Now, what's for breakfast tomorrow?
