Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked & Peeled Eggs: Instant Protein Boost for Any Dish

In the October issue of Men’s Health Magazine, editors took a close look at salads – a food that can be healthy but also can instantly become a diet buster.  From calorie-laden dressings to high-calorie salad add-ins, editors pointed to healthy, ready-to-eat proteins as one of the best ways to make, and keep, your salad healthy.

“Toss in Eggs,” says Clint Carter, Associate Editor at Men’s Health, “Two Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked & Peeled Eggs have 120 calories and 10 grams of protein.  Following a diet that’s moderately high in protein may help you keep weight off, a 2010 New England Journal of Medicine study found.”  In addition to being a good source of high-quality protein, Eggland’s Best eggs have 10 times more Vitamin E, 2 times more Vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3 and so much more.

Get started with two of our favorite salads, the EB Cobb Salad. with homemade Dijon dressing, and our Chef’s Salad, with garden-ripe cherry tomatoes.
