I have taken to eating raw egg yolks on a nearly daily basis. I get more than enough protein from meat, so I don't need the whites. To separate them, I crack them in a bowl, use a spoon to scoop out the yolk, and then move the spoon back and forth... (more)

I put two or three raw chicken egg yolks in my kale smoothie every morning and have for years. I get the eggs from a neighbor and have never had a problem. Just make sure the shells are clean before you crack them.

Okay guys. I recently discovered I do indeed like eggs sunny-side-up. However, when I go to eat the yolk, it kinda goos (yes, goos) all over the plate and I feel like I'm wasting the precious liquid gold...So, how you eat your yolks? I'd rather... (more)

The yellow color comes from carotenoids. Carotenoids are antioxidants and are used up during periods of immune stress, so any sick/distressed animal will have significantly less carotenoids in its body. In the case of hens, less to store in... (more)

Your farmer is brilliant--another new angle to hook people! I hate to break it to you, but there's no difference between a pullet's egg and a hen's egg. The difference you're tasting is in the quality of the eggs period. Yes, a pullet is a hen... (more)

Yes and no. We had free range hens and color does vary with the seasons, what they are eating and how many bugs and how much green stuff they like is available. In the middle of Summer you should see a deeper yellow yolk in a truly free range hen.... (more)

Why do many people outside of the Paleosphere believe that egg yolks are bad? What are some good resources that defend the consumption of whole eggs? Thanks!

The colour of the yolk depends on the level of beta-carotene and xanthophylls like lutein present, and so is a reflection of the content of the hen's diet. In many cases, a deeper colour is indicative of a higher quality, more nutrient dense diet... (more)
