Eggs are an excellent FAST FOOD, workout recovery food, protein/breakfast on the go, lunch on the run, dinner in a pinch. Let's face it, eggs offer COMPLETE nutrition nicely packaged in a protective shell! Our eggs are packed with MIRCO nutrition since the hens are eating plenty of grass and herbs that are growing in mineral and beneficial bacteria soil that allows us to absorb nutrition you can not find in most store bought eggs, YES- even organic eggs. 

Unless the birds are foraging OUTSIDE, they are missing the 5 essentials for life (clean air, water, soil, sunshine and a stress free lifestyle). Organic, cage free & free ranged birds are still being raised in houses so they do not enjoy the 5 essentials of life. You can fortunately now find GMO free and pesticide free eggs in the stores and sometimes you can still find some raised on grass too, but then the FDA requires them to be washed in chlorine to be sold in stores. We leave our eggs dirty to ensure the protective membrane remains on the permeable shell until you are ready to wash and cook them.  

In season, between April & October each year, stock up on and enjoy local pasture raised gmo free eggs. Egg season slows down in October as the grass starts to hibernate for the winter. Once winter solstice is here, our hens molt and stop laying eggs until the grasses start to grow again around April. We do still have some eggs in the winter (birds molt at different times), but not enough for everyone to enjoy some and the few families that will get them are limited to just one dozen per week. 

Fortunately our eggs can be stored in a fridge for up to a YEAR safely. You actually only need to hold eggs for about 6-8 weeks so if you start storing 8 weeks worth of eggs now and then rotate them each week in the fridge, you will definitely have enough to ration them in your home when the birds molt. I generally hold 15 dozen eggs for the winter because I will not feed my family eggs if I do not know where they came from.

You might find that your teenagers can eat a dozen eggs at a time if given the chance to free feed. This is a great thing to allow them to do when eggs are flush in the spring and summer. Interestingly, these teens can generally only do that for about 3 days before their body naturally gets satiated with egg medicine and then they are on to the next seasonal food item! I think the money we spend to keep my teen satiated is cheaper and far more healing than anything else I can fill him up with. The best part is that he can boil his own eggs and even CLEAN UP when he is done. I like to keep a dozen boiled eggs ready every week. We just boil them in the morning on Sunday and see how far they go. Sometimes we can make them go 3 days, but may times they are gone by the end of the day. 

In the egg video, Dr. Barnes speaks about selenium in eggs and the benefits of it but did you know that selenium is ALSO a heavy metal chelator? Interestingly, the selenium levels in our day trip seafood also make our wild caught day trip tuna and other fish safer to eat than the store bought variety.
