EGGScellent Eggs!

Do yourself a favor and carve out a little room if you can for some chickens! Eggs are one of God's wonderful little protein packages for us.
Free range chickens lay beautiful and delicious eggs. The hens that are allowed to bask in the sunshine, eat bugs, seeds, and grass will lay eggs far more nutritious than poor little factory farmed hens. Even when it says  "organic", or "Free range" or "cage free" on the egg cartons, beware! Creative statements are often made and if you could see the living conditions with your own eyes, you would be disgusted.

Before there were factories, there were everyday people raising gardens, chickens, a Thanksgiving turkey, goats or cows for milk, and keeping bees. You don't have to live way out in the country to do these things, either. Enhance your life- slow down, savor life and all it holds, the way it was meant to be lived.
Eggs from pasture raised hens as opposed to factory farmed have:
(according to Mother Earth News Magazine)
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
4 to 6 times more vitamin D

  1. Oooooo look at the purdy blog! '-) It looks great!!

    I know what you mean about REAL farm fresh eggs. I get my milk & brown eggs from an Old Order German Baptist farmer (they live like Amish). And I was just there this morning! It was such a beautiful day around her ~ 1st in quite a while ~ that I think most of the county decided to take a buggy ride...I was driving around "horse apples" nearly the whole way! lol

    Glad you like your new blog look.

    Blessings from Ohio...Kim<><
