Maddy’s Egg-cellent Fried Rice
This month we’re making fried rice, a staple in my diet! This is something I eat for lunch before an afternoon workout. It’s a great option because it’s got a perfect mix of carbs, protein and veggies to keep me full through a workout – and it’s also just tasty! This time around I used broccoli and green onions, but you can really use any veggies you’ve got on hand: peppers, mushrooms, carrots, cabbage - they all work! Really the things you need are garlic, ginger, soya sauce, rice and eggs.
Innovations in Agriculture
In January, I was live on the air with home economist Peggy O’Neil, the host of the radio show Food for the Future on CFPL 980. The show was part of a monthly series, Food for Thought, in which Peggy unpacks some of the “big ideas” about food and food systems to stimulate lively discussions and find the way forward together. On the show, we discussed innovations in agriculture, a global priority to ensure there is enough food for everyone. I explained that the need for innovation is ever-present in all that we do at Burnbrae Farms, and that a combination of family values and sustainability have influenced virtually every decision throughout the years.
Exciting Nutritional News on Egg Protein
Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein. In fact, when ranked scientifically among other protein sources, eggs come out on top. Now, a new study published in June 2022 did a deep dive into the specific benefits of egg protein. Turns out, this high-quality protein source plays a role in protecting against sarcopenia, building muscle, and helping with weight maintenance.
Maddy’s Ramen Inspired Noodle Soup
Soup is a staple in my diet – and this noodle soup is hearty, nutritious and warming. I love coming home after a damp and chilly outdoor practice to a big bowl of soup.
Maddy’s Valentine Carbonara
It’s the season of love. And what better way to show love, than through food? Carbonara is my favourite pasta because it’s a recipe that makes just a few ingredients really sing.
The Vital Importance of Vitamin D
I always make sure to choose foods that are rich in vitamin D, and I also take vitamin D supplements if needed. Why? The body’s immune system requires vitamin D to fight off any invading bacteria and viruses – even respiratory tract infections (such as the common cold). Vitamin D also helps quell inflammation and researchers continue to investigate other possible functions, such as protecting against multiple sclerosis and depression.
Maddy’s Leek & Gruyere Omelette Recipe
Happy new year! Athletes, just like most people, are looking to nourish their bodies with good food come January. After a season of treats, some protein and vegetables are my biggest craving. It’s all about balance! This month, I’ve loved making leek and gruyere omelettes using Burnbrae’s EGG Creations! Whole Eggs Original.
