I have been buying pastured eggs at the natural grocery store where I do most of my shopping. The problem is that they are nearly $6/dozen and I go through a couple dozen a week. I'm looking for a cheaper alternative, but only if I can find one that isn't going to cause problems. These are my options:
-Pastured eggs - $5.69/dozen
-Soy-free, Omega3-enriched "free range" eggs - $4.19/dozen
-"Cage free" Omega3 enriched eggs from chickens fed a vegetarian diet - $3.85/dozen
Does "free range" mean anything more than "cage free?" I've come to understand "cage free" means there's probably an open window near the chickens. Also, would avoiding soy be something to consider? I don't mind spending the money on healthy options, but if I could save a few dollars here and there, it would be fantastic.
Thank you in advance for any insight you can provide!
