Little Thumbs Up: Eggs (August 2013)

Hi everyone, August has finally arrived and I am happy to announce that I will be hosting this month's "Little Thumbs Up" event.What is ? It is a cooking/baking family-oriented event organized by Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids and Doreen of my little favourite DIY  and each month, one rotating hostess of this event will nominate an ingredient (preferably something healthy for your family).

Are you ready for some egg-tion?

My chosen ingredient for the month is - we are an egg-loving family and I believe eggs is an ingredient which you can use to create many delicious, healthy and nutritious meals for your family. Feel free to use any kind of eggs - chicken eggs, duck eggs, salted duck eggs, century eggs, quail's egg or even fish eggs. You can also link any bakes which uses eggs ( it is NOT necessary for eggs to be the main star).A large chicken egg typically contains 72 calories (17 calories in egg white, 55 calories in egg yolk) . Eggs contains lots of vitamins and minerals, and the nutrients in eggs can play a role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health and more. Eggs also contain the highest-quality protein found in any food and provides the energy families need to perform their best on important days.
