You know you can count on me to point out when it’s National Grilled Cheese Month or even National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month. And because I believe in moderation, I feel it’s only right to point out that March is National Nutrition Month.
Hold on there, cowboy. Don’t click away.
A little nutrition appreciation never killed anyone. That I can promise you.
Besides, the theme for National Nutrition Month 2014 is, “Enjoy the taste of eating right!”
And I think we can all agree that eggs are a delicious way to enjoy the taste of eating right.
I could also point out that one 70 calorie egg is loaded with vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants. Not to mention, eggs are a great choice for pregnant and breastfeeding women because they are an excellent source of choline. Choline is a nutrient that contributes to fetal brain development and helps prevent birth defects.
Or I could just point you in the direction of this article and this article and get on to the business of celebrating National Nutrition Month with some Salsa Simmered Eggs.

The Average Betty Test Kitchen shared this information on National Nutrition Month and developed this recipe on behalf of Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs.
Safest Choice sources eggs from vegetarian-fed hens that are hormone and antibiotic free, from USDA certified and inspected Kosher certified farms.
The Safest Choice all-natural egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of salmonella in eggs before the eggs even enter your kitchen.
