Eggs: Pastured


The eggs of a pastured laying hen can be called “pastured”—and once again, there is no substitute. They are rich yellow, with more omega-3 fats and vitamin E than eggs from chickens who never go outside. I don’t buy eggs from hens whose diet is enhanced with fish oil, but the yolks do show more omega-3 fats. That said, the egg is a perfect food, and I would serve cheap eggs if cheap eggs were all I could find or afford.
