Did you know that eggs contain the highest quality protein, 11 vitamins and minerals, are a source of healthy fats (including omega-3 fats) and that the yolk is one of the only foods that's a natural source of Vitamin D? We're not eggs-aggerating, those are facts! And with Australians eating an average of 217 eggs per person each year (with numbers growing), it's safe to say that WE LOVE EGGS!
