How eating eggs at breakfast helps with weight control


By Carol Harrison, RD, ​http://www.Yummylunchclub.ca 

Have you noticed that when you eat eggs for breakfast, you’re less likely to feel hungry before lunchtime? I’ve done some digging into the research, and the results may inspire you to get cracking with eggs more often in the morning.  

Does your breakfast have enough protein?

How can you get long-lasting energy in the morning? Eat eggs for breakfast!

One of my favourite breakfasts is rustic whole grain toast topped with arugula, avocado and poached eggs. Not only is it super tasty, but it also gives my body what it needs in the morning – protein!

5 fantastic reasons to eat egg yolks


By Shannon Crocker, MSc, RD, www.shannoncrocker.ca

Don’t skip the yolk!

Creamy, soft poached eggs with whole grain toast and a hot, frothy latte—that’s what my breakfast dreams are made of.

If you love egg yolks as much as I do, then you’ll be happy to know that there is plenty of scientific evidence that they’re super-nutritious.

Ottens Family

What would you like people to know about quality hen care?

“To us, it is all about providing the best care for our birds – it’s the focus of everything we do. It is important to provide water, food and a comfortable environment for our hens. It is our job to make sure our hens live a good and healthy life. When our birds are healthy, they produce safe, high-quality, nutritious eggs for Ontario consumers.”

Why did you choose this housing system?

“We chose different housing systems for our hens to be able to give consumers a choice in buying eggs.”

Corput Family

What is your family history?  

“My grandfather bought our farm in 1967 and he and my father milked cows until 1994. That year, we made the transition from dairy cows to broiler chickens (chickens raised for meat). In 2008, when I purchased the farm from my father, I decided to take on a new challenge - growing pullets.“

Chaudary Family

How did your family become egg farmers?

“Both of my parents were born in Pakistan. Before moving to Canada in the 1970s, my parents moved to Saudi Arabia and then to Denmark. My family settled in the Niagara region and bought our first egg farm in 1977. As a family, we continued to work and grow the farm. Before deciding to farm full time, I briefly moved to Louisiana to work on the resurrection of oil wells. After three years, I decided that being an egg farmer was what I wanted to do, so I moved back to the family farm.”
