I am getting asked much more frequently if it’s ok to eat eggs, and if so, what kind of eggs? Yes! It’s ok to eat eggs, and when possible, pasture-raised organic is the way to go. I eat eggs every single week.
Big eggs, small eggs, brown eggs, white eggs, cage-free eggs, organic eggs? I haven’t always given them much thought. I just grabbed whatever eggs were at hand. Then we moved across the country to southern California. I quickly discovered that not all eggs are created equal. Once I got over my childhood memory to not eat too many eggs (too much cholesterol, or so I was told then, by non-doctor well-meaning family members), I had to get serious about what eggs to purchase. I love eggs; I love them scrambled, in omelets, hard-boiled and soft-boiled (oh I could rhapsodize about the egg cups alone for a while). Given a choice, I want brown eggs. They seem more real to me, more authentic. I want cage-free, organic brown eggs.
