Sunny Side Up Please!

My friend Tammy and I both had our minds on eggs the other day. Maybe it’s our wish to see the sun and our need for Vitamin D. Tammy found some great info from Mother Earth News that says, eggs from pastured chickens (meaning-chickens who roam free eating bugs, grass, lettuce and the sort) have 4-6 times as much Vit D compared to a regular supermarket egg. That’s fanominal!!!!

Here are some other good nutritional facts:

• 1⁄3 less cholesterol
• 1⁄4 less saturated fat
• 2⁄3 more vitamin A
• 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
• 3 times more vitamin E
• 7 times more beta carotene

You can read the entire article at Mother Earth News

The eggs in the picture show the back egg from pastured chickens eating bugs, grass and old produce. The egg in front is from uncaged chickens on organic feed but no greens. Your goal is bright orange yolks.
