Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to each and every one of us, whether it's hitting the gym every now and then or eating healthy at the dinner table. We want to be healthy not just for our own sake, but for those around us.  Here's your opportunity to share how eating eggs plays a part in your healthy lifestyle with your fellow BlogHers for the chance to win $1000 and six months of free eggs from Eggland's Best!

If eating a healthy diet without sacrificing great taste is important to you, you're going to love Eggland's Best eggs.  These eggs are nutritionally superior to ordinary eggs without giving up one bit of the great egg taste you love.  Eggland's Best hens eat an all-natural, all-vegetarian feed; strict quality and production standards are always followed. They've even been awarded the Gold Medal for Superior Taste. Eating well never tasted so good!

Here's some egg trivia you probably didn't know:

• The United States Government has granted Eggland's Best a patent titled "Eggs Compatible with a Cholesterol Reducing Diet and Method of Producing the Same."  How cool is that -- their own patent!

• Clinical tests have shown that people on a low-fat diet who ate 12 Eggland's Best eggs a week did not increase their serum cholesterol level -- their eggs have 38 mg less choleste/rol than ordinary eggs.

• Eggland's Best eggs have 10 times more Vitamin E than ordinary eggs. One egg provides 25% of a person's recommended daily allowance of Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to protect body cells and tissues. Eggland's Best eggs have 100mg of Omega 3 per egg compared to only 37mg in an ordinary egg. Omega 3 fatty acids are termed "essential" and are believed to be beneficial for heart health, brain and eye function, infant development, and alleviating hypertension.

• Cutting back on saturated fat is recommended for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health and Eggland's Best eggs contain 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs.
