It’s time for an EGGstravaganza!

It’s time for an EGGstravaganza!

Now that spring is officially here, we have eggs on the brain!  Easter is just a couple of weeks away and eggs are truly an icon of the new season.  Most folks know that eggs are healthy and delicious, but we thought we would share a few lesser known facts about the incredible egg. 

Did you know?

  • People have been enjoying eggs for a long, long time!  East Indian history indicates that wild fowl were domesticated as early as 3200 B.C. Egyptian and Chinese records show that fowl were laying eggs for man in 1400 B.C. and Europe has had domesticated hens since 600 B.C. While there’s evidence of native fowl in the Americas prior to Columbus’ arrival, it’s believed that on his second trip, he carried the first chickens related to those now in egg production.
  • Egg yolks contain choline, which helps promote normal cell activity, improves liver function, and helps transport nutrients throughout the body.  Choline also helps develop infant memory function, so eggs are a fantastic food for new moms!
  • The surface of each egg shell contains between seven and seventeen thousand tiny pores.
  • In the U.S. alone there are about 300 million egg-laying hens, each of which produce 250-300 eggs per year for a grand total of 75 billion eggs.  Wow!

So, now that we have you in the mood for eggs, drop on by The Original Pancake House for breakfast out in Denver.  With over twenty egg dishes on our menu, we’ll have your whole family shouting “hooray for eggs!”
