Eggs are good for you when they come from healthy chickens that have free access to grass pasture, are fed an organic feed, and are properly taken care of. When the yolks are golden yellow–almost orange–and the shells hard, these are good signs. Very often even organic brands have pale yolks and thin shells. When we don’t know about the farm where our eggs are produced, it is difficult to know which brand to buy. If you don’t know your farmer and his/her practices, visit Cornucopia Institute’s organic egg scorecard. Their list and the ratings will help you make a good choice at your local, natural foods grocery. Once you find a brand that you have available locally, go to the scorecard and click on the name to open the criteria list with individual ratings. The long list of criteria which determines the rating is very educational! Check it out!
