Brown Eggs Are (Actually) Local Eggs (This Time)

We have been eating eggs much more regularly for a few months. We have "egg night" once a week, and we've been adding eggs to some salads, as well. I'm excited to have been stocking our fridge with eggs from local Williamstown chickens (through the Wild Oats Co-Op). They are wonderful.

According to Mr.Breakfast, there is no nutritional difference between brown and white eggs (making the claim in the jingle erroneous), but there is a difference between farm fresh eggs and those from the grocery store shelf that have been transported from who-knows-where (even if they're brown). Farm fresh eggs are tastier and fluffier, and sometimes more yellow. Mostly though, it just feels great to be supporting a local farmer.
