SURE TO PLACE YOUR ORDER EARLY TO RESERVE THE BREED(S) YOU WANT
WE ARE A HOMESTEAD AND HOBBY FARM WHERE WE HATCH, RAISE AND SELL OUR 'HERITAGE BREED' AND EASTER EGGER 'PAMPERED PULLETS' AND HENS AS WELL AS THEIR FARM FRESH 'MULTI-COLORED' PASTURED EGGS ~ $ 4 PER DOZEN
"Eggs are one of the few foods that are a complete protein, meaning they contain all nine essential amino acids that your body can't make itself," says Joy Dubost, RD, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. "Once digested, those amino acids trigger the release of hormones in your gut that suppress appetite."
Don't discard the yolks --- about half an egg's protein lives in those yellow parts.
Adding vegetables to scrambled eggs or an omelet boosts its volume and fiber content for only a few extra calories ( an egg has 78, and a cup of spinach just 7 ).
