Lets fast forward to today. Today about every 3 weeks or so, my family enjoys heading out to our local farmers market on Sunday morning. It gives us something to do as a family and I am hoping to instill the right food philosophies in my children from a young age. So we visit Helen and pick up 3 dozen eggs. We are regulars and she is a sweet lady. My daughters have been taught about the importance of supporting our local farmers market. Why? Because for the most part, they are trying to sustainably grow clean produce without the use of fungicides and harsh chemicals. They are in direct competition with big retailers who maybe don’t care about doing the right thing as much. Lets get back on point. My daughters have been taught that the healthiest eggs are those that are “pasture raised” 24 hours a day on an organic farm. This means they are left to roam around on a pesticide free farm 24-7. This doesn’t mean they only get to graze on vegetables or grains outdoors a few hours a day or stored in a warehouse and fed organic food. You see, when raised the way nature intended, both chickens and their eggs are super healthy sources of high-quality protein and fat nutrients. Eggs contain complete proteins. This means they provide what your body needs to build, maintain, and repair skin, internal organs and muscles.
