(CNN) -- Get cracking! Today marks the very special occasion that is World Egg Day.
Since 1996, the International Egg Commission has used the second Friday in October to celebrate the incredible, edible egg. For a mere 70 delicious calories, you're also getting 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants.
The best part is you can prepare eggs as many ways as Bubba Gump can prepare shrimp. You can scramble 'em, devil 'em, poach 'em, serve 'em sunnyside-up, the list goes on.
