Story at-a-glance -

  • The husband of author Emily Farris decided to experiment and put several of their homegrown eggs on the grill after making dinner one evening, only to discover a decidedly delicious smoky-flavored perfectly cooked egg for his efforts
  • Eggs are rich in the essential nutrient choline, which your body uses to normalize metabolism, as a neuroprotective substance and to regulate homocysteine; choline deficiency may lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), one of the most common forms of liver disease in the U.S.
  • The egg is versatile, lending itself to being baked, fried, steamed, poached, boiled or added to other foods. By the 1970s concerns over cholesterol dropped the average daily consumption of eggs, but a 1999 study from Harvard University demonstrated there was no association between eating eggs and heart disease
  • High-quality, pasture-raised hens produce nutrient-dense eggs with bright orange yolks; consider purchasing from a local farmer, raising your own or seeking out store-bought eggs ranked high on The Cornucopia Institute Organic Egg Scorecard

Eggs can be made in multiple ways. And while delicious, they're also considered one of the most perfect foods as they have the highest quality protein you can purchase. Eggs have no carbs, no sugar, are naturally gluten-free and are packed with nine essential amino acids.

Many locally sourced eggs will have a brown shell, but this has nothing to do with the flavor or nutrition. The shell color is an indication of the breed of hen. White eggs are more popular in CAFO productions since the breed is smaller and needs less food to produce the same number of eggs. Some chickens will lay eggs almost every day, while others only once or twice per week.
