Eggs Are Always A Good Choice

No Paleo/Primal Diet would be complete without Eggs.

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. $1.00 per dozen is 8.3 Cents per egg.
  2. Each egg gives me 90 calories 
  3. So the cost per 100 calories will be about 9.25 Cents.

  1. Hi there! Anita from Had to stop by after seeing your comment over at praugstepchild.

    We eat a lot of eggs at our house for the exact same reason - they're cheap and healthy. Between myself and 2 kids, we go through 5 dzn easily in a week.

    Yes, we should be clucking by now... ;-)

    Costco is a good place to pick those us (1.49/dozen if bought in the 5 dozen packs). On the weeks I can't get to Costco and they're not on sale anywhere else, I'll pick them up at Target for 1.69. (Yes, Target, the discount department store. Crazy huh?)
