Having more cows than people, Montana is well known as a state big on ranching and farming. At Farmer Boy Eggs, we are happy to produce eggs from free-range chickens while also supporting the local economy and providing a healthy food choice to the people of Montana. The best part about Farmer Boy Eggs, however, is how delicious they are to eat! Pair them with a few other local MT staple items and you are on your way to a healthy breakfast that not only tastes good but supports local farmers and ranchers.
Protein for Breakfast
With an average of 6.5 grams of protein in a large egg, scrambling up a few of them is a great way to start your day. If you want to add some additional sources of protein, however, try one of these products from local ranchers and processors:
Sausage from Farm to Market Pork and Beef. Located in Kalispell, Montana, Farm to Market supplies pork and beef that is born, raised and packaged on their family farm.
Some Veggies on the Side
As your doctor would surely tell you, no meal is complete without some vegetables. Add some color to your plate with an order from The Western Montana Growers CoOp C.S.A. With over 20 delivery sites, this C.S.A is the easiest way to get your share of freshly grown, Montana produce, but if you would rather not sign up for a weekly delivery check out their list of local farmers and producers.
Add Some Fruit
Another healthy and delicious addition to any breakfast is fruit! Here are some wonderful Montana options:
Peaches and Nectarines from Forbidden Fruit Orchard. Located in Paradise, Montana, these hand picked treats are delicious.
Cherries from Glacier Fresh. Grown in Big Fork, Montana, these Flathead cherries are a Montana specialty you can’t miss.
Watermelon from Dixon Melons. Grown in Dixon, Montana, these vine ripened melons are a local favorite.
Don’t Forget the Dairy
Dairy can be an additional way to add protein, but it also supplies some great flavor and vitamin D. Here are some Montana favorites:
Make Something Sweet
We all know a healthy breakfast leads to a great day, but adding in a sweet treat can also do wonders for the mood. Here are a few great options:
