Green Your Breakfast: How Do You Like Your Eggs?

Organic eggs Good morning! This week’s tips are about how to make your most important meal of the day more eco-friendly.

Tip #2: Think through your eggs.

Whether you like ‘em scrambled or sunny side up, your first decision about your eggs should be that they be organic and cage-free. When you buy organic eggs, you’re supporting ways of feeding and raising animals that are free of pesticides and other chemicals, GMOs, and unnecessary antibiotics (to find the best brand of organic eggs near you, check out the Cornucopia Institute's organic-egg scorecard). And when you buy cage-free eggs, you’re diverting your money away from polluting factory farms. To be certain, however, that the yolks you’re frying (or boiling or baking . . .) are pure, consider how much fun it could be to keep your own chickens.
