As you know, I’m all about eggs. Not just any eggs – they must be amazing eggs. I’m talkin’ farm fresh, free range, happy eggs! They are such a wonderful source of lean protein and you can use them to whip up a meal in minutes. Egg dishes are perfect as a quick, easy and healthy meal anytime; great tasting and great for your waistline.

These particular eggs are from Boggy Creek Farm. They have the best eggs!  They are super fresh and you get to meet the chickens while you’re there.

I really love broccoli in my eggs. I know what you’re thinking, “Broccoli? With eggs?” but I’m telling you, you’ve got to try it.
