I have been eating eggs for breakfast every morning since I started this local adventure. I used to skip breakfast, but now I really look forward to it. We raise our own chickens and sell eggs, so we always have a surplus. In the summer the chickens run outside in the sunshine eating grass and bugs. They eat such a large amount that their grain ration goes way down! This makes their eggs high in Omega 3’s and other nutrients. In the winter months we give the chickens the chaff from the clover hay, so they still are getting some green in their diet along with their grain. Pastured hens eggs actually have 34% less cholesterol than factory farm hens. Just one of many reasons they taste 100% better.
