Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs For Pregnancy and Beyond

You know eggs are healthy, right? I actually think of them as a bit of a super food, at least with organic eggs. Eggs are especially great for pregnant woman. Get a load of this information:

Eggs are an excellent source of choline, a little-known but essential nutrient that contributes to fetal brain development and helps prevent birth defects. The National Academy of Sciences recommends increased choline intake for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Two eggs - including the yolks - contain about 250 milligrams of choline, or roughly half the recommended daily amount. The National Academy of Sciences recommends that pregnant women consume 450 milligrams of choline per day and that breastfeeding women consume 550 milligrams per day.

In addition to choline, eggs have varying amounts of three other nutrients that pregnant women need most. Eggs are a good source of the highest quality protein, which helps to support fetal growth. Eggs also have a B vitamin that is important for normal development of nerve tissue and can help reduce the risk of serious birth defects that affect the baby's brain and spinal cord development. The type of iron in eggs (a healthy mixture of heme and non-heme iron) is particularly well-absorbed, making eggs a good choice for pregnant and breastfeeding women who are at higher risk for anemia.

Eggs are not just good for pregnant women, but for all of you out there too! Those same vitamins that are so great for moms-to-be are great for you!

When choosing eggs, you want to be a bit particular. I only eat organic, cafe-free, grass fed eggs, and some of the best are from Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs. Pete and Gerry's care about their chickens and feed them only organic grains - free from pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, and medications.
These eggs are delicious and even have added Omega-3s, to really set them apart from most eggs. I used them to make a delicious frittata with veggies, scrambled eggs with pesto, and I hard-boiled a few to have on hand for some extra protein.

Buy Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs at all these locations. Try these eggs out for yourself to see how delicious and nutritious they are!
