There are only around 8 calories in an egg, and they're rich in B vitamins too, meaning that they are great if you are dieting or just want to eat more healthy. It is estimated that around 15% of people have only a drink for their breakfast - which will have your tummy rumbling by lunch time!
British Lion eggs is partnering with the WRAP Love Food Hate Waste campaign for British Egg Week to highlight the important role that eggs can play in helping to minimise food waste.
This year’s theme is ‘eggs make a meal out of anything’ and British Lion eggs has worked with WRAP to develop a collection of recipes to show how easy it is to use eggs to make healthy, quick and economic meals from the most commonly wasted ingredients. These recipes will feature in a dedicated British Egg Week section on their website.
The British Lion is the UK's most successful food safety mark with nearly 90% of UK eggs now produced within the Lion scheme. WRAP's campaign, Love Food Hate Waste, helps raise awareness of the issue of food wastage and offers easy ways for individuals to reduce the amount of food they throw away.
WRAP works with businesses, individuals and communities to achieve a circular economy through helping them reduce waste, develop sustainable products and use resources in an efficient way.
With recipes including Eggs Benedict (or even just a boiled egg with brown bread soldiers for dipping) to get you salivating, why not have a crack at cooking with eggs and fill yourself up?
