With all the confusing "marketing terms" used on the front of the cartons, how are you supposed to know what eggs are actually good for you?
Without boring you by going too deep, I want to help you make your own educated decision next time you're craving an omelet!
🥚Regular eggs👉 Come from chickens kept inside, literally shoulder-to-shoulder in their own shit, being fed cheap grain. High in omega 6 fatty acids, with low nutrient value.
🥚Cage-free eggs👉 Come from chickens also kept inside, still shoulder-to-shoulder in their own shit, being fed cheap grain.
Wait... what? I thought they were cage free? Sure they are! But that just means they're still kept inside for the majority of the day, and are no better for you than 'regular' EGGS.
🥚Free-range eggs👉 Come from chickens that are allowed outdoor roaming, who get to eat grass at their leisure. These eggs will, as a result, be high in omega 3 fatty acids, with a much better nutrient content.
Just for reference:
💡Omega 6 fatty acids are inflammatory, and cause a variety of our most common health concerns. These are found in processed grains, and are a large contributing factor to heart disease and chronic inflammation in the body.
💡Omega 3 fatty acids are Anti-inflammatory, and help to balance excess omega 6 consumption. These fatty acids are typically found in greens, algeas, and fish (these are what your doctor said you need more of). They help with a variety of things, from brain health, to heart health, and even joint pain reduction. Basically, less inflammation = better life.
Eggs are a great source of a TON of other nutrients that we need (especially us guys) ranging from choline for brain health, and cholesterol to help our body to produce sexual hormones (keep that testosterone up!)
