I love eggs. And eggs is my staple for my low carb diet. It is inexpensive, easy to prepare and if you hard boil them, easy to keep on hand for a quick snack.
And nutritionally, they are the perfect food. As a matter a fact, most high fat foods are very nutritious.
When you think about an egg, it is the perfect food. Eggs are where chickens come from once fertilized. There must be lots of vitamins and minerals in order to create a chicken. When we eat eggs we are getting lots of nutrition.
Eggs are a real food, created by God. I prefer real food like meat, fish, eggs and vegetables rather than the processed food that modern people eat. Real foods are just full of nutrition.
For example, white flour has so little nutrition, manufacturers are required to add vitamins to the flour.
Personally, I would prefer to get my vitamins naturally from the foods I eat.
When I choose foods, I try to get the most natural foods. So when I choose eggs, I go for the eggs that come from pastured chickens. I try to find meats from animals who were fed grass and not corn.
The thing that is great about an egg, is that you don’t have to question what is in it. There is not a label to read. It is simply an egg.
When choosing eggs at the store, the best option is to choose eggs that come from pastured chickens. This means that they are not confined to a cage 24 hours a day. The chickens sleep in a coop at night but otherwise are out in the fresh air during the day. They can eat grass or worms if they want in addition to the foods they are fed.
I would think that pastured chickens would be healthier so they would have better tasting and more nutritious eggs.
I used to go for the free range eggs, but then I realized free-range simply means that the chickens must be given access to the outside. It doesn’t necessarily mean the chickens are outside a good part of the day.
Another thing to look for when buying eggs is to look for eggs from chickens that haven’t been given antibiotics or hormones. Whatever the hen ate, is what we eat when we eat the eggs.
