I am going to purchase 5 dozen eggs at Giant Eagle - they have them on sale this week for $1.00 Dozen.
I'll hard boil 2 dozen to be eaten as snacks or used in salads or to make egg salad with.
The other three I'll leave fresh to be eaten throughout the week
Do I think I'll eat 5 dozen eggs? Probably not - But I bet I'll eat 6 per day or about 3.5 dozen.
6 per day @ 90 calories per egg would be 540 calories at a cost of approximately 50 Cents per day
Lets break it down on a per egg basis.
- $1.00 per dozen is 8.3 Cents per egg.
- Each egg gives me 90 calories
- So the cost per 100 calories will be about 9.25 Cents.
