Our ladies are laying three eggs a day now. This leaves us with 21 eggs a week, which means I can justify being on team Swanson/Knope up there regarding having breakfast for every meal.
The timing of our chickens producing more eggs and deciding to reduce our meat intake (sorry, Ron Swanson) could not have been better. Eggs have provided a nice, backyard-sourced meat alternative. Yes, sure, chickens produce environmental waste. But given that we free range them, feed them organic food when they can’t range and use their waste materials (pine shavings and poop) to supplement our compost, it’s pretty much the circle of life around here.
If you’re looking to eat less meat but still have some animal protein, or if you just like DELICIOUS FOOD, here are three super-easy-yet-kind-of-gourmet egg meals for you!
