Eggs are a great source of
protein, amino acids, fat, and other goodies such as choline, phosphorous, and

you’re hungry. Great for breakfast, lunch, a snack or dinner.
Great to have around in the
fridge as a quick snack. Terri, my wife, always has it on hand. Make your
mayonnaise from scratch in minutes since all commercial stuff has canola or
soybean oils in it. Add some celery, walnuts, pickles, or whatever else tickles
