Today we – and the rest of the world – celebrate eggs.

Today is World Egg Day – a day set aside to celebrate, and recognise, the remarkable nutritional benefits of eggs.

We know they’re full of protein and nutrients…

High in protein eggs are one of the most nourishing foods on the planet, with one large egg containing a whopping 13 essential vitamins along with 7g of protein – essential for the strength and repair of muscles and tissues.

They can combat common nutrient deficiencies that often go unaddressed but are crucial for maintaining optimal human health and performance. Eggs have essential nutrients, including choline – aids in brain development and function; vitamin A – promotes eye health, resilient skin and a robust immune system, and vitamin D – plays a pivotal role in bone health.

What’s more, they’re so affordable, making them an excellent choice for all.


Here’s a quick and easy recipe for you to make (and it’s load-shedding-friendly, too):
