The Pink Dozen

During the past six weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of being one of Eggland’s Best Eggs’s “Pink Dozen,” 12 special bloggers interested in great food, healthy lifestyles and helping Komen find the Cure®. Chosen by Eggland’s Best, and stamped with Komen’s pink ribbon and Eggland’s Best signature logo, the Pink Dozen have showcased the best of everyone involved.

More complicated than executing the world’s largest Easter egg hunt, the search for the Cure® is taking place at top breast cancer research facilities around the world. For every new “egg” found, comes more questions and more avenues, which subsequently need pursuing, and that takes money. Lots of money and Eggland’s Best has contributed $50,000 to help Komen’s researchers find the Cure®.

As America’s Number One branded all natural egg, Eggland’s Best has been the 2010 recipient of the Good Housekeeping Seal from Good Housekeeping Research Institute; one of the 25 healthiest Foods for Women by Prevention magazine; one of the Top 125 Foods for Men by Men’s Health annual nutrition awards; one of the Top five “superfood” picks according to American Baby magazine, as well as a host of other nutritional awards this year alone. Since Eggland’s Best Eggs comes from all natural, organic fed, uncaged chickens, it was an easy “scramble” for Eggland’s Pink Dozen bloggers to get creative.

The Pink Dozen Blogs were over easy; videos were sunny side up, and some were even “yolk, yolk” funny:) Bloggers contributed their favorite recipes from omlettes and frittatas, to heart healthy pumpkin bread. One blogger made a breakfast burrito video of the Tiger Rock TaeKwonDo Academy before they walked in the Jacksonville, NC Veteran’s Day Parade and another had an Eggland party with fun egg games like an egg toss, eggs on a spoon race, an egg hunt and “pink the ribbon on the egg” all captured on video. As another Pink Dozen blogger put it, breast cancer “needs a swift kick in the Huevos!” Since eggs were the one food that didn’t send shivers up and down my spine during chemotherapy, I thought it was fitting I was chosen to be one of the Pink Dozen. In addition, Claire Robinson, Food Network chef and host of the 5 Ingredient Fix, also teamed up with Eggland’s to share the news about the Pink Ribbon eggs.

Just as Komen supports great researchers, Komen also embraces great financial supporters like Eggland’s, and in turn, the Pink dozen embraced what some nutritionists call the perfect food. Sounds like a winning recipe for everyone, especially anyone who wants to find a cure for breast cancer, and who isn’t on that list?
