We eat a lot of eggs in our house, the kids are big fans and there are many different ways to cook them that we can easily change things up and make new meals using them. On busy nights it is easy to make eggs, bacon, toast and fruit for dinner and that works for me since the kids are eating a well balanced healthy dinner. However recently I have been taking a closer look at where our food comes from. I have been doing that more and more over the past few years when I started cutting out processed food as a regular in our pantry. As time has gone on and I have looked more and more at the food we have been eating and something are making me not so happy.
We have discussed having chickens, but well there are many reasons having our own chickens wouldn’t work. The time involved, how much the smell, the wild animals where we live and the list keeps going. So the next best thing is finding meats and eggs that are “happy”. I know it might sound totally silly to want to have the food we are eating happy before it becomes a meal on my plate but the idea of my eggs sitting in chicken poop from tons of chickens doesn’t sound appetizing to me. So after reading far to many articles and scary things online about chickens and their eggs I was happy when Blue Sky Family Farms reached out to me and presented me a solution to what I was looking for, 100 percent Free Range and Pasture Raised eggs. The universe works in great ways at times, showing you a solution to what you have been spending hours looking up on.
So where can you get these eggs?
- Natural Grocers carries the Free Range Non-GMO Brown and Organic eggs in more than 100 stores in the Midwest, Southwest and Northwest regions.
- Whole Foods Market Mid-Atlantic and South Divisions carries three new offerings: Free Range Non-GMO Brown, Organic and Pasture Raised Organic eggs.
- Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets carries three new offerings of Blue Sky Family Farms’ Free Range Non-GMO Brown, Organic, and Pasture Raised Organic eggs.
The only thing my kids questioned at first is why the eggs were brown and asked if they would taste any different then the eggs they were used to seeing. Well a quick explanation on the egg color being different on the outside but its the same yoke and egg on the inside and then baking a cake with them cleared those two questions up really quickly 🙂
