Last month I mentioned April is a big month for eggs, but you can keep reaping benefits of eggs throughout the year. May is National Egg Month. Celebrate National Egg Month by continuing to have the incredible edible egg at breakfast or during another meal or snack of the day. Why not try a new recipe for eggs? This past weekend, I tried a breakfast pizza with an egg!

So why are eggs so great?

Also it is quite convenient that it is also National Salad Month, so why not merge the two holidays together and have a hardboiled egg on your salad!
