The Incredible, Edible Egg

Commonly regarded as a symbol of fertility, new life and rebirth, the egg is the ultimate symbol of spring. Whether an egg sandwich, fried, hard-boiled, pickled, poached, scrambled, soft-boiled, roasted for Passover or colored for Easter, a fresh-from-the-farm, pastured egg cannot be beat. Eggs are pretty much the perfect food. These nutritional powerhouses contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need. Consider the chicken; an egg contains enough nutrients to transform one single cell into a fluffy baby chick.
