I’m not sure how only white shelled eggs being sold in supermarkets came about. Probably something to do with white equaling purity in the psychological minds of America. But until maybe 15 years ago, the supermarket shelves were only lined with white shelled eggs.

However, since the “organic” and “free-range” labels have come along, brown eggs are now synonymous with healthy and organic. (The organic label itself is problematic; but that’s another complete blog post.)

Hens eat everything from grass to insects to commercial chicken feed. Healthy chickens require a far more diverse diet than massive factory farming provides and that’s one of the reasons why those brown shelled eggs often have thicker shells. Those small farm hens get better nutrition.

Things have been a little slow in the kitchen lately.

But I thought this McDonald’s burger from 1996 reminds me why I cook or go out to a quality restaurant.
