hi! does anyone have the drop on eggs in the Houston TX area from free-range hens, fed a diet free of soy? While a feed-free diet is ideal, I don't think it is possible in this area to keep your free-range chicken population without... (more)

Here in South OC it's pretty tough to find grass fed beef. I usually only find it in places like Whole Foods, Sprouts, or Costco. It's very expensive and there's not much documentation or anything to ensure me that it's grass fed, grass... (more)

On the note of eggs: I can't find any pastured eggs in the area that are reasonably priced ($5 a dozen, which is WAY out of my price range, considering how many I eat) so I focus on getting eggs from animals that are well treated. I... (more)

First of all, please enlighten me to the difference, nutritionally, between these. Also, while it seems pretty obvious, maybe you could distinguish between "Free Range" "Cage Free" and "Pastured" eggs. I'm thinking that free range is the same as... (more)

I think that La Bahn Ranch, one of the biggest egg sellers at the farmer's markets here, is in Temecula right? Most of the farmer's market sellers are within a few hours by car at most. Could be worth the drive if you plan on patronizing a... (more)

My cousin pulls these eggs from the roost, puts them in cartons on her counter. No cleaning or refrigeration, stuff stuck to them, which I understand should be no big deal. My son had a couple for breakfast on Sunday, and puked hours later after... (more)

If you were already suspicious of the eggs because of your son's barfing after a MOUNTAIN RACE, you might have created a bit of a subliminal suggestion to yourself that maybe the eggs were bad. The mind is a powerful thing, and I've freaked myself... (more)

A free range off the farm soy free chicken is between 21-27$ around here at 5$ and change a pound. A dozen soy free free range eggs is 8$. We generally eat one chicken per week and use the carcass to make broth for soup which is also made once... (more)

I buy pastured stewing hens, the retired egg layers. 2 for ten dollars from a local farmer who also produces pastured lamb. Their organic young hens are about $20 so i think this is a good deal. Slow cook for a while then remove the meat, put... (more)

I have been searching for a decent local-ish egg source since I go through tons of them and feel ethically and nutritionally compromised when I buy the battery eggs, and I feel fairly the same way when I buy the pricier "free range, omega-3" eggs... (more)

wow, I would love to eat those eggs! I think $2 a dozen is a steal. They sound like they really take good care of their chickens, to me that's the most important part. Organic feed offers the same nutrition as non-organic feed, but I think a... (more)

I know I will get a lot of heat for this questions. However, here it goes: I'm currently limiting fat intake on workout days. My lunch usually easy sauteed vegetables with lean ground beef and 5-6 egg whites. This scramble is delicious (on off... (more)
