Eggs eaten in many forms are a part of what makes Easter so special. You can find them made out of chocolate, candy, jello or "real" ones too.
One egg contains over six grams of protein and 212 milligrams of cholesterol. You can eat one egg every day without harming your cholesterol and blood-fat levels. There are thousands of ways to eat eggs. My family enjoys them fried in a little butter and egg in the bread, which is made by cuttting a hole in a slice of bread and frying an egg in the middle of it.
Another recipe that is a favorite are deviled eggs, which you can make with all those eggs that you colored for Easter and for which you need a good recipe.

Eggs are also traditionally connected with rebirth, rejuvenation and immortality. They are very satisfying and help with weight loss by keeping you full. In order to eat healthy, you can also mix one egg with several egg whites for a healthy meal.
I also like them served with mashed or fried potatoes. Sunny side up or scrambled eggs with potatoes can be served for a scrumptious breakfast, lunch or dinner. My family loves this combination and I know yours will too. Enjoy your Easter holiday and if you don't celebrate Easter, just have a great meal.
