Tuesday's food and pastured eggs

What I ate today: 2 deviled eggs (made with nitrate free bacon and chives from my garden), chocolate creation, Organic apple, raw almonds, pineapple sausage, peach with half and half, bacon cheeseburger (no bun, no condiments), side salad with ranch dressing, one cocktail.

Went out to dinner with a friend this evening and was able to avoid the french fries and only had one cocktail, a Lynchburg Lemonade. Delicious on a warm summer's day!

I was lucky enough to find a vendor at the farmer's market last week that had pastured eggs. If you have never had pastured eggs, make the effort to seek them out. The yolks are deep yellow, sometimes orange. The shells thick and are varied in color-tan, white, light green, even light blue. The taste is.....fresh. That is the best way to describe it. You can actually taste the freshness. Sure they cost a little more, but they are so worth it. Pastured eggs actually have nutrients, unlike the factory farmed versions that we are all used to. Imagine the benefits they are giving your body. I'd say that's worth the extra cost.
