This Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Bread is a wonderful fall dessert perfect for serving on Thanksgiving!

 World Egg day is on October 9th and there are many great reasons to celebrate and enjoy delicious Canadian eggs. 

Just think about it, not only are eggs packed with essential nutrients like vitamins A, D, folate, iron, zinc
and choline but they are also super versatile.  You can made everything from Salad dressing to Cake using eggs or eat them alone for a protein packed meal. Talk about the perfect food!

I’m thankful that Canadian farmers work so hard to provide fresh eggs regardless of season.  Even Canadians in the Northwest Territories have access to local eggs!  Did you know that Rural Canadian farm families deliver more than 595 million dozen egg each year?  That’s a whole lot of eggs!

Since Canadians eggs are locally produced I am always sure that I am providing my family with a high quality food product. Be sure to look for the Grade A symbol before you purchase eggs for your family!  Canadian Eggs are available in classic white and brown eggs to free range and free run to organic, omegaΒ­3 and vitamin D enhanced.  No matter how you choose to feed your family, Canadian egg farmers work hard to provide you with choices.

While eggs are an affordable source of complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids, my favourite use for Canadian eggs is in my baking!

I was inspired by World Egg day to share with you this family favourite recipe that just couldn’t happen without Canadian Eggs:  Chocolate Swirl Pumpkin Bread!
