The Breakfast Club for February
“Breakfast Club: Because breakfast should be more interesting
than tea & toast or coffee & cereal. “
February – Eggs
- British Lion Eggs
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods money can buy – they are a natural source of many nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins and minerals. A medium egg contains less than 80 calories.
Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12 and vitamin D. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, biotin, pantothenic acid and choline. Eggs also contain essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus, iodine and selenium.

With the previous limits on consumption due to their cholesterol content now removed, eggs are a healthy fast food for all the family, especially if combined with vegetables and salads as part of balanced meals.
Welcome to the Breakfast Club for February! The Breakfast Club is Helen from Fuss Free Flavour’s event and I have the pleasure of guest hosting event for February. The theme for February is EGGS! Eggs are a wonderful source of nutrition, see above, and they can be used in all sorts of breakfast dishes, from the humble boiled egg, cooked breakfasts, scrambled eggs, poached eggs through to the very elegant eggs Benedict. You can ADD eggs to breakfast recipes too, such as pancakes, drop scones, muffins, omelettes and breakfast bakes and cakes, and then there is the classic Kedgeree. And then you can use in that lovely of breakfast conserves, Lemon Curd, the possibilities are endless. If you are vegan and don’t eat eggs, please use an alternative such as tofu, but please do enter into the Breakfast Club fun!
