About 2 1/2 years ago I started raising a small flock of chickens in our backyard. With all of my sons allergies, I thought it would be good to take some control over where some of our food comes from- and what goes into it. I haven't bough eggs from the store in over 2 years and my son loves them - the eggs that is!. With 4 hens currently laying, we have more than enough for the 2 of us, the neighbors get them handed over the fence on occasion, and I sell the rest to co-workers or friends. They all swear that our eggs taste better than what you get in the store and I feel better knowing we aren't eating some chemically processed crap.

Although I can agree with this article for the most part, I think there is a serious disservice being done by NOT promoting the organic egg. 93% of corn is GMO and corn us high on the chicken diet. If you want to eat a diet free of GMO's you need to eat organic. This should be STRESSED. Not all eggs are created the same and the coloring by itself is obvious to that. Eat your eggs. Don't eat pesticides built into your food!

There's a lot to love about the humble bumnut or cackleberry. It's natures fast food, cheap, full of vitamins and minerals and easy to cook. A 'googie' for breakfast can keep you going right up until lunch, they are as nature intended them to be ..... perfect!!

My thirteen chickens and I all agree that eggs are amazing, and that people who refuse to eat the yolk don't know what they're missing.

And of course you have to say to cook until the yolk is firm, but I love my yolk runny and delicious.

I was told by a lady that sells eggs to wash them before cracking them as well. Never thought of it before but makes sense.

"Cook eggs until yolks are firm." No. If I am frying an egg, the yolk will not be firm. No. Otherwise interesting information.

In some cultures the eggs are served any time of the day, for example growing up
I always had fried eggs and french fries every evening with a good chunk of crusty bread.

Waycat .... There are several reasons why eggs are refrigerated in USA and not uk. The most notable being that in UK hens are required to be vaccinated against salmonella, US has no such requirement, refrigeration hinders the bacteria growth, if present .

I eat 3 eggs every morning, that's 21 eggs per week. Sometimes I eat the whole egg, other days I may have 2 eggs and omit the yolk for the 3/rd egg. I feel great and have a busy lifestyle.

I have to disagree with the recommendation to store eggs in the fridge. Here in the UK all supermarkets have their eggs out on shelves, not in the fridge - so what's the point in putting them in the fridge when you get home?
They are so much easier to cook with at room temperature rather than chilled.

And forgive me, but I just can not understand why some people have such an aversion to eating egg yolks, instead just option to eat the whites. I mean, an egg is the ultimate complete food - the yolk is tasty, full of nutrition and when you think that it nurtures a growing chick, it MUST be good for you!

I think just eating the whites and discarding the yolks is a criminal waste of good food.

I don't think eggs are mandatory. Here the thing, certain foods are not easily available in other countries which is why God naturally made various food available for each culture. The beauty of this day and age is that we can eat foods from other cultures. I'm sure the benefits from eggs can be found in other food. If food isn't poisonous I'm sure it;s free to eat.

Interesting article - however, it does not say anything about eating egg whites only! Because of the high cholestral - we have switched to egg beaters and egg whites only. Is there a benefit? Also - by not eating the yoke - do we lose the vision benefit and other benefits of the yoke?

Interesting article...
I find it sort of interesting that it conflicts with the advice given via the SP nutrition tracker. If I had two eggs for breakfast I'd already be over the amount of dietary cholesterol recommended for my calorie range. When I do go over the range, the nutrition feedback cautions to be careful how much cholesterol you consume.

If all the studies quoted in this article are true about dietary cholesterol not necessarily raising blood cholesterol, why is the nutrition tracker and feedback cautioning me?
