OK, so I know a lot of people get hung up on mass produced vs. organic vs. local vs. grassfed .
I always like to support local growers/suppliers when I can. When I can get local beef, I do. Otherwise, the grocery store cornfed beef is fine-- in otherwords, it's not stopping my lifting/physical progress.
Ditto eggs. However, a friend gave us some eggs from her chickens who live in a small pen and get bagged chicken food, scraps, and get to eat the bugs and grubs. By the way "free range chicken" doesn't mean acres of open fields for a chicken. They tend to group in small areas. A small pen is plenty for a few chickens to roam around in.
Anyway, here are 2 eggs-- local and "Eggland's Best Omega-3 X-Large", supposedly "the" go to egg for people who lose sleep over Omega 3 and nutrition content in their eggs.
The little tiny egg is our friend's chicken's egg.
In hand, the little egg is heftier (denser) than the larger egg. Weighs more and isn't as liquidy to the shake.
