Eggs: a Comparison

One egg has about 75 calories, give or take a few, and 13 essential nutrients in varying amounts – including the highest quality protein, choline, folate, iron and zinc. Eggs also play a role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health and more.

Robin Eggs (made by Whoppers) however only have about 22.5 calories per egg. (And there is no reason to buy organic, because they don't make them and oh, it wouldn't help anyway.) And they, too, play a role in weight management, albeit a negative one...

So, I have reached a new low in my Robin Egg addiction: stealing them from my son's Easter Basket when he isn't around...and I would be totally ashamed if it weren't for the repulsed look that took over his face when he tried one on Easter morning. I figure, although he likes to hoard his candy (as well as the majority of the candy from his sisters' baskets that they supposedly "gave" him) he probably won't mind me eating one or two of these beloved eggs...an hour... Hopefully he won't miss them because I may have just eaten the last one. Ho hum. I suppose I need to run an extra mile tomorrow to make up for my vice. Why, oh why, can't I love real eggs this much?

Ok, I vow now that today will be the day I break my habit...DOH! I just had another one! ARGH!

Ok, for real this time...

Shoot, nevermind...
