To celebrate World Egg Day 2022, Bord Bia has teamed up with Irish athlete Sharlene Mawdsley and TV chef extraordinaire Daniel Lambert, in a bid to encourage Irish consumers to ‘Crack On’ and choose Bord Bia Quality Assured eggs.
New figures from Kantar Worldpanel have revealed that consumers in Ireland purchased over 638 million eggs, proving that Ireland is still cracked about eggs. Despite changes in shopping and eating habits volume sales of eggs remain 7% higher than they were pre-pandemic in this country.
To coincide with World Egg Day, taking place this Friday, October 14, Sharlene and Daniel traded their knowledge in their respective fields, showcasing how eating healthy and nutritious dishes involving eggs, can feed into a busy and active lifestyle.
Sharlene, from Newport, shared her winning formula as she put Daniel through his paces on the track to help him train for a healthy run. In return, Daniel turned the heat up in the kitchen by coaching Sharlene as she prepared a delicious and healthy Bord Bia approved frittata recipe, with eggs taking center stage. This all helped to demonstrate how eggs can be an easy and nutritious way aid to fuel a healthy and active lifestyle.
Speaking about their participation in the campaign, Sharlene Mawdsley commented, “I’m delighted to team up with Bord Bia to celebrate World Egg Day. Eggs are such a staple of my diet whether I’m training or not. While I know my way around a racetrack, I wouldn’t say I know my way around the kitchen as well.It was great to learn from Daniel all the new ways I can prepare and enjoy eggs.”
Chef Daniel Lambert says that eggs are the unsung hero of most recipes, “Simply put, eggs are a nutrition powerhouse. They are beyond versatile and one of the best sources of protein available in any recipe – be that for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.”
