We’re all familiar with the phrase “you are what you eat.” Simply put, it means quality in, quality out; the body is a finely tuned machine, and when you supply it with quality fuel you’re rewarded with quality performance. The better you eat, more nutrients you extract and the better you feel.
If you’re trying to improve what you eat, some smart initial changes would include:
- reducing or eliminating highly processed foods
- cutting back on fatty and sugary foods
- increasing fruit, vegetable and water intake
- favoring “superfoods” (nutrient dense foods) and foods high in antioxidants
- supplying your body with lean proteins throughout the day.
Have you considered that you are also “what you eat eats?” Just like we should aim for a varied, healthy diet in order to reap a full spectrum of nutritional benefits, the animal protein we eat should have had a varied, real food diet in order to provide maximum nutritional impact.
At Eggland’s Best, the hens are fed an unique, all-vegetarian that consists of healthy grains, canola oil, and an all-natural supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. This feed contains no animal fat, no animal by-products, and no recycled or processed food. As a result, when compared to ordinary eggs, each Eggland’s Best large egg contains:
- 25% less saturated fat
- 10 times more vitamin E
- 3 times more vitamin B12
- 4 times more vitamin D
- double the Omega 3s
- 38% more lutein
- a good source of vitamins B2 and B5
In fact, Eggland’s Best eggs are the “recommended egg” by the American Vegetarian Association.
Plus, just one large Eggland’s Best egg contains just 60 calories. Eggland’s Best never uses added hormones, steroids, or antibiotics of any kind. That all adds up to an egg that’s more nutritious with a better taste.
You are what you eat, and what you eat eats! What changes can you make for a more nutritious diet and better overall health?
