Fresh eggs opened my eyes.

Many of you have read my post about becoming a reluctant Vegan for health reasons, and here is the post to say why that decision will never work.

There are so many decision to make in a day from

  • what time to get up,
  • to shower or not,
  • what to eat,
  • one cup or two
  • cereal or eggs
  • kids TV or not

and the list can go on and on. As a reluctant vegan, one big decision I needed to consider was between farm fresh eggs in the morning and tofu. The question plaguing my was, “what is wrong with farm fresh eggs anyway!?”

You see, my parents, have free range happy chickens and we get fresh eggs during the spring and summer. I’ve been cracking fresh eggs for my kids for months and drooling as I did it. These eggs are beautiful and I wanted to eat them, so I went on a mission to discover why eggs were bad.

Truth be told eggs are bad for you, the ones that come from chickens sitting in their own filth and unable to move are bad. Go figure!! You are what you eat, as my grandma has said before. However the chicken eggs from my parents have numerous health benefits, which you can see for yourself here.

I didn’t want to stop at just eggs I wanted to see what was wrong with everything else that didn’t seem to add up. How could processed food trump the real deal? What were my grandparents eating? The diet the American people have has never been done before in human history and so far it is killing us.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!

  • If you want to eat animals loaded with antibiotics then perhaps you too will need antibiotics to fix whatever they gave you.
  • Low fat means they have put something else in it, and it came out of a factory.
  • GMO is an acronym you MUST educate yourself on. You would never want your kids drinking Deet.
Kelli over at Groom and Style has written a comprehensive guide on the benefits of grass fed products.

The Benefits of Grass Fed Products

She breaks down the mystery behind the term “grass fed” and shares info graphics (like the one below) that make it easier to appreciate the importance of “happy animals” and a healthy body.

I know for myself I feel better about eating humanly raised animals and my body is stronger for the rich protein and healthy fat from my parents chickens.
