Pastured vs. Free-Range Eggs

Where do you get your Eggs?

If you get your eggs from the supermarket, you never really know how long they’ve been sitting there on the shelf or how ago they’ve been transported to the supermarket, etc.

So, you think if you buy Organic eggs from the supermarket you’re eating healthy?

Or, you think if you buy eggs that say Free-Range from the supermarket, you’re eating healthy?

These terms have been hijacked by the food industry into making you believe that you are eating healthy.

Eggs are one of the most economical ways to increase the nutrients in your family’s diet. Eggs are full of vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin E, omega 3 fatty acids, beta carotene, cholesterol (which is good for you), and saturated fat (also good for you).

Buy only pastured eggs from local farmers who keep their chickens outdoors and let them roam around in the sun, eating bugs and worms.  I also only buy eggs from farmers who do not feed their chickens soy.  They are not really that much more to buy from your local farmer.

Here are photographs to compare eggs:

Which Eggs would you rather Eat?

I choose to get fresh eggs from the chicken farmer that have the proper nutrients without antibiotics.
