A Post-Holiday Protein Packed Recovery
First things first, getting back into a healthy diet. When you are busy or on the go, you need your protein. And a long day requires a lot of energy and trying to find the perfect source to give you that boost can be a struggle. Busy lifestyles can make getting your nutrient requirements quite difficult. Grabbing last minute snacks and drinks can become a bad habit that doesn’t always give you what you need, when you need it. Nutrition should never suffer due to lack of convenience! It is 2022, there is no excuse to compromise when there are so many healthy options that are ready in a pinch! If you are looking for an easy and delicious warm snack to keep you fueled for hours, EGG Bites! are a great solution.
New Meta-Analysis Findings: Eggs are Beneficial for Heart Health
Working in the egg industry is always an adventure – especially when it comes to the science! Researchers around the world are constantly conducting studies on diet and nutrition, and eggs are often in the spotlight. It’s been many years since the worry of eggs and cholesterol was in the news, and the most recent studies on eggs as part of a balanced diet have been wholly positive. That theme continues with this new egg-related study that was published in the American Journal of Medicine in January, 2021.

A True Canadian Horse Breed
Burnbrae Farms recently embarked on a new adventure with the purchase of a team of purebred Canadian horses. The history and development of the Canadian horse is entwined with the evolution of the country itself, and I’m sure most are unaware that in 2002, it became our national horse breed!

Kids’ Snacking Made Easy
Canadians love to snack, and that’s especially true for children. In fact, snacking contributes about 27% of the total daily energy (calorie) intake in Canadian children, who actually snack more than adults (21% of calories). But snacking is a good thing for children, as long as the snacks provide some nourishment. Little tummies get full quickly, so it’s hard to get enough nutrition at mealtime alone. Snacks can be used to fill in the gaps for foods that are not consumed at mealtime.

Food Loss and Waste
Reducing our environmental impact and supporting our communities has always been part of Burnbrae Farms’ ongoing commitment to sustainability. That’s why reducing food waste is so vital to our work. The average Canadian household wastes more than $1,100 worth of food per year! And with the cost of groceries on the rise in Canada, it’s more important than ever to make changes. Food waste happens beyond the home too: at grocery stores, restaurants, farms and by food manufacturers. Today I’ll share some insights as to how Burnbrae Farms is reducing food waste at our farms and manufacturing facilities, and I’ll add some tips as to how you can help at home, too.
