I was very excited to find local, organic, free-range eggs at the farmers market. So along with the peppers, onions and tomatoes I got there, I made omelets. Sorry about the lousy photo, mine started to fall apart as I was removing it from the pan-Murphy's Law! and the kids had already eaten theirs. It was very cool to get eggs that were all different colors and sizes. So unlike the uniform factory farmed eggs that you get at the supermarket.
I don't eat eggs often simply because I try to limit the amount of animal products I consume. But when I do, I make sure they are free-range and organically raised to avoid antibiotic, hormone and chemical residues in the eggs. This also ensures they haven't been fed genetically modified foods, and that they are raised humanely. Healthy chickens produce healthy eggs.
I eat the whole egg, not just the white. I find it sinful that so many people think it's a good idea to throw away the most nutritious part of the egg- the yolk. It contains all of the vitamins-A, D, E, K, B12, folate, choline and more. The white really contains just protein. Like all whole foods, the entire egg should be eaten. The cholesterol in eggs has never been shown to raise blood cholesterol. Eating a high-fat diet has.
