Food intolerance can range from "throat closes and I die" to "I just feel better without". Personally, I know my body runs better without eggs (even organic, free range ones), but I know how good they are for me! Plus, they're delicious. Dairy... (more)

You have to keep the lights on most everywhere in the continental US. You can skip the calendula if you have growing grass still. The eggs (assuming they are pastured) will have more grains and fewer bugs in them.
