Partner content: Eggs for all!

Have an egg or two today! World Egg Day, celebrated this year on the 8th of October, is the 25th anniversary of this international celebration and an ode to the humble egg’s incredible nutritional power.
Eggs are a satisfying and healthy food for everyone, with “Eggs For All: Nature’s Perfect Package” being the 2021 theme. No matter your age or stage of life, from babies and pregnant women to gym aficionados and grandpas, versatile eggs have a place at every single meal of the day.
There is so much more to the egg than a basic boil, fry or scramble. Is there anything as nice as a birthday cake made with real eggs, or a pancake, scone or biscuit? How about egg pasta, meatloaf or twice-baked cheese soufflé?
Life’s too short to substitute glorious eggs. And they pack such a mighty nutritional punch, there’s simply no need to.
Other egg bonuses? They are easy to find, economical and one of the most adaptable and useful ingredients in the kitchen. Follow your egg tray out of your culinary rut with our potato omelette frittata served with chakalaka, a dinner-for-one, lunchbox, picnic, still-got-a-piece-in-the-fridge favourite that’s as good with tomato sauce as it is with spicy chakalaka or your favourite atchar or pickle.
You’ll also love our herbed brown rice salad with jammy boiled eggs as a gals’ gathering, book club main, bring-a-dish family feast, or Sunday side for that roast or braai.
Eggs for the win, all day, every day. Your body already knows it and your taste buds demand it!
