One thing that I won’t miss this summer is running out the door to get to school. Our kids are big on breakfast and they will not settle for just cereal, but I recently started having them help with the morning breakfast routine. My kids eat eggs and turkey bacon every day, and I always felt that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. That’s why I don’t really mind taking the extra time to make healthy meals in the morning. We try to eat healthy as much as possible, so I was excited to try Nellie’s Free Range Eggs.
Nellie’s is committed to providing better lives for hens, which means better eggs for you and your family! Coming from the first Certified Humane® farm in the country, Nellie’s girls (aka hens) are never caged and have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want. I know it can be confusing when it comes to selecting eggs. Free Range eggs title means that most times of the day and year, the hens are free to roam outside as they please. This is very different from Cage Free, which sounds good, and is better than being in a tiny cage, but still basically means that you are in a massive warehouse of a barn with hundreds of thousands of other hens, in floor to ceiling caged enclosures, with no access to the outdoors. So not exactly idyllic.
Easy to prepare, inexpensive and nutrient dense, eggs are one of the most versatile and nutritious meal or snack options around. Plus, they’re a great first food to get kids into the kitchen and interested in cooking at an early age. In the summer, we tend to take a lot of day trips and the kids don’t want to get up early. So, I try to have the sandwiches ready to go, so it’s a quick but healthy meal before setting out for our adventure! Nellie’s offers some great promotions and coupons on their website, be sure to check them out.
