Healthy Benefits


Pumpkin provides one of the most abundant sources of beta-carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A. It also contains a hefty amount of fiber and is a good amount of vitamin C and iron.

Egg-Land’s Best eggs are better for you than regular eggs. They contain more vitamin E, 100 mg of Omega 3 and 25% less saturated fat than regular eggs. You’ll find them in most supermarkets.
