In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Eggland’s Best (EB) will be supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. From September 15th to November 15th, Eggland’s Best will be turning their distinctive red “EB” stamp into a pink “EB” alongside a Susan G. Komen for the Cure running ribbon logo. Eggland’s Best will also be pledging $50,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which will help expand the foundation’s mission to discover and deliver the cure for breast cancer across the globe.
Did you know that in the past year, with the help of companies including Eggland’s Best, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been able to invest an additional $75 million in research, as well as provide more than 600,000 women with free screenings and over 100,000 with treatment assistance?
What scares me though, is how many of us have had our lives touched by this disease. :( Eggland's Best sent on over some information I'd like to share with you:
Exercise may help reduce breast cancer risk. Research suggests four or more hours of exercise weekly may help reduce the risk of certain cancers, such as breast cancer – that’s just 35 minutes a day
When trimming calories, it’s important to make sure you don’t skimp on good nutrition. For only 70 calories, Eggland's Best eggs supply a perfect portion of complete protein, while providing two times more Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as 10 times more Vitamin E compared to ordinary eggs.
Preliminary evidence suggests that, as part of a healthy diet, vitamin D and choline can help to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Eggland’s Best eggs are an excellent source of these nutrients, containing double the vitamin D of ordinary eggs in addition to 25% of the daily requirement of choline.
We eat eggs on a fairly regular basis here -sometimes as part of breakfast (I make a mean taco omelet!), and often as part of my baked goods. One of our current favorite recipes, Homemade Pepperoni Bread, uses two eggs. I really do try to make sure we are eating properly in our family.
