28 Jan Pregnancy Registered Dietitian Discusses Nutritional Value of Eggs
The egg industry has been facing criticism for the cruel treatment of hens, and it’s important to note that not all eggs are created equal. Recently, Dairy Queen and McDonald’s announced their commitment to using cage-free eggs, with Dairy Queen aiming to make the transition by 2025. Consumers can support ethical practices by making informed purchasing decisions. Additionally, the nutritional value of an egg is directly influenced by the hen’s living conditions.
Throughout history, eggs have symbolized many things, such as fertility, life, and the universe. From Persia to the United States, coloring eggs is a longstanding tradition that has been passed down through generations. As we celebrate various holidays and faiths, we hope for good health, vitality, and happiness.
Who knows, maybe all of that can be found on your plate.
