Fun facts about me:
- My mother did not like cracking eggs, so I didn’t grow up eating eggs for breakfast very frequently. I was 20 before I ate quiche.
- I lived in developing countries for 10 years, where I got used to the taste of delicious, free range eggs. When I moved back to the states, the typical grocery store eggs didn’t taste or look the same. I started buying free range eggs, the only eggs I can enjoy!
Also, as science tells us, breakfast is awesome. So when I learned that September is National Breakfast Month, I definitely wanted to celebrate it with eggs.
I had the chance to choose between Pete and Gerry’s Certified Humane Free Range Organic Eggs or Nellie’s Certified Humane Free Range Eggs, and I got the Nellie’s and magic happened.
I didn’t actually take this “fried rice bear under an egg blanket” photo, but I do use eggs in fried rice probably three times a week. I was vegetarian for 17 years so my best cooking skills are in meatless dishes.
I also made a quiche but it wasn’t photogenic. It was, however, extremely delicious and certified humane free range.
When choosing your eggs, it’s important to pick an option that’s good for you, your family, and the hens. Certified Humane Free Range is a real standard you can trust. “Cage-free” might still mean the hens are crammed in a warehouse. So don’t be fooled by slick language!
To help you celebrate National Breakfast Month, Nellie’s Certified Humane Free Range Eggs wants to give one Mom Most Traveled reader (2) coupons for free cartons of eggs. That is 24 chances to enjoy one of nature’s most perfect foods, raised the way nature intended.
