an*the* Eggland’s Best ambassador. Or, as I like to say, the EGGvangelist. The below is a sponsored post. The topic, opinions, and childwithbluenailpolish are all my own.
There was a time when I cared not what I ate.
I dont judge my younger self (I was happily drinking & processed eating through college) because as with all things in my life I *needed* an AH HA! moment to change my ways.
That ah ha! was the gift of aging.
When I was younger I was happy to lose weight, maintain my loss and cared NOT what I was putting in my (fingerquote) temple (unFQ) as long as said temple was a lean, mean, clothesfitYAY! machine.
And then we began contemplating starting a family and suddenly I viewed everything through a different lens.
Not only did I start questioning what I put into/on my body—-I began thinking in terms of what my future child would consume too.
It was right around then I discovered Eggland’s Best Eggs & their notion of Better Taste. Better Nutrition. Better Eggs.
I was curious about the taste. I was *curious* about the nutrition. I was CURIOUS about the overall better eggs. I was *CURIOUS* about the cost.
Quite frankly I wasnt cheap so much as I questioned WHY on EARTH Id pay more for eggs when to the left & right in the refrigerator case were cheaper ones.
Cheaper eggs which pretty much looked the same.
On the outside.
Here’s what I found out:
The hens at Eggland’s Best are fed an all-natural, all-vegetarian diet of healthy grains and an all-natural supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp, marigold, and Vitamin E.
The feed contains no animal fat, no animal by-products, and no recycled of processed food.
The only ‘binder’ added is canola oil.
Eggland’s Best NEVER uses added hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. I avoid these for MY BOD—why would I wanna ingest them as a result of what my FOOD is consuming?!
I also learned the eggs-with-the-tattoos have:
- Ten times more vitamin E
- Four times more vitamin D
- Three times more vitamin B12
- Double the Omega-3
- 25% less saturated fat
- 38% more Lutein
I was sold.
Thats all it took for even this
still so much to learn about life younger misfit to realize Eggland’s Best provided more bang for my buck and, more importantly, more QUALITY food for my buck.
I was starting to follow the notion of G.(arbage) I.(n) G.(arbage) O.(ut):
Id just not stopped before to consider *I* was also ingesting any ‘garbage’ my food-producers consumed.
- From fertilizer to FEED do you consider what your food ‘consumes’ before you place it in your pie, err, egg-hole?
- Are you, too, willing to pay a bit more for quality food?
