For those of you who may be hunting for eggs soon, we’d like to put out the call for REAL EGGS.
What are Real Eggs?
Well, as with real milk and real meat, this means eggs produced the way Nature intended — eggs coming from hens raised on pasture.
When compared to the USDA’s nutrient data for conventional eggs coming from chickens confined in factory farms, the eggs of pastured hens have:
- 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
In short, they’re much more nutrient dense. And they’re healthy. Rather than being loaded down with so-called “bad” cholesterol, they’re actually rich in the cholesterol your body needs to keep your memory in tip-top shape, your mood serene, and all your organs and cells repaired.*credit to Foodrenegade.com
