Authen-tip: Fresh Eggs are Fabulous!

Many of you are lucky enough to raise your own chickens or live near somebody who does. I am so jealous because nothing tastes better than a farm-fresh egg! When it comes to purchasing eggs, I always recommend getting organic and cage-free eggs from a local farm. A lot of food stores are now carrying local farm products which is fantastic because you get the health benefits from eating fresh eggs and you support a local business. Eggs are a good source of protein and selenium, which is a nutrient important for thyroid hormone metabolism. They also contain bone-building vitamin D, vitamin K, vitamin B2 and B5. For an easy on-the-go snack, hard boil some eggs in advance so you can just grab one out of your fridge when hungry!

Daily Nutrition Nibble: Eat some Farm Fresh Eggs!

Live near a farm? Do you have access to cage-free, organic eggs? Eggs are a good source of protein, Vitamins A and D, zinc, and iron.
