On 03.03.2016 by Molly Bray Yunek

March is National Nutrition Month®, which makes this a perfect time to review some of the best recommendations for achieving a healthy diet.

With new diet trends that focus on a “free-from�? platform, it may seem that eating healthy is becoming increasingly complicated. We are being told to select foods that are free-from gluten and free-from dairy. There are dozens of other elements misleadingly being labeled as dangerous for our health. U.S. adults not getting enough fruits and veggies Let us take this opportunity during National Nutrition Month® to step back and practice the fundamentals of healthy eating.

Baked Scotch Eggs with Guacamole >

On 02.17.2016 by Lindsay Livingston, RD

As a Registered Dietitian, I’m constantly touting the benefits of starting your day with a healthy breakfast. I’ve always been a breakfast lover and considering the fact that I pretty much HAVE to eat something within 15 minutes of waking up, I always find it somewhat baffling that there are people out there who don’t really care about breakfast. (Cough…my husband…cough). Say what?! Luckily for me, my 15-month-old son has definitely inherited my love of breakfast. In fact, his love is so strong that if he decides he wants breakfast and you don’t have it ready in about 30 seconds, a total meltdown will inevitably ensue. So, I do my best to plan ahead and make sure I have breakfast options cooked and ready in Read More >

If you are one of the 30 million Americans who skip breakfast you may be putting yourself at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.  Eating the most important meal of the day may be one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself from developing a disease that is expected to affect nearly 40% of Americans during their lifetimes.

Paleo Crepes with Strawberry Jam >

On 03.19.2015 by Gina Matsoukas

Paleo. If you haven’t heard the word before you’ve likely been living under a rock (a pretty big one too) for the past five years or so as this diet has seeped out of the small fitness niche it lived in and pretty much taken over the world. Okay, slight exaggeration maybe but seriously, I hear it everywhere. As someone that does CrossFit regularly, I’ve of course dabbled with it myself from full out Whole30 months (omg, give me the chocolate!) to where I’m at now which is eating paleo-ish a good chunk of the time. Here’s thing, I don’t believe peanuts and beans and are going to kill me, but I also believe we eat far too many carbohydrates. And then there’s the whole Read More >

We are proud that Safest Choice™ eggs has very supportive fans. Some share how happy they were to find a safe egg; some share stories; and others share recipes. That is why we have decided to share the stories of our friendly fans with you.

As a young girl in Texas wearing a flower print dress made from a feed sack, Ms. Grace helped her grandmother gather eggs from two dozen hens. She carried buckets of fresh water and feed for the hens. She also dealt with a nasty, mean-tempered red roster that watched over the hens. Apparently the demonic, evil foul Read More >
