How to look for a fresh egg

BROWN or WHITE? Brown eggs come from brown chickens, and white eggs come from white chickens. Nutritionally, there's no difference, but brown eggs are often a little bigger, have a richer taste and darker colored yolk. That may be because brown chickens are larger than white ones and eat more food. If it seems like brown eggshells are harder to crack, it's probably because they come from younger chicken. 

Eggs are a perfect and whole food. It contains vital protein, nutrients, as well as a wealth of helpful antibodies that mainstream science is only beginning to understand.
