Industrial Egg Producers

Eggs For Breakfast - But At What Price?

Written by Jeff Siegel

A few years ago, I began transitioning my diet to one this is mostly vegetarian.

Don't get me wrong, I still crave and eat meat. But not nearly as much as I used to.

No, these days, I only eat meat once a day. And sometimes less than that.

For breakfast, I go vegetarian. Usually eggs, oatmeal or some variation of cheeses and veggies.

For lunch, I usually go vegan. Often it's just mountains of salad with all kinds of random grains, tofu and dried fruits. I'm also a fan of this insanely delicious Japanese Winter Stew that I discovered in the Moosewood Cook Book. And the Moroccan Couscous recipe in The Kind Diet has kept me well fed on many occasions.

For dinner, meat is on the menu. Although I've definitely cut my portions down by at least 50 percent over the past year or so. And quite frankly, at least two or three days a week, dinner is meat-free.

Now honestly, I don't really have a problem with eating meat. I don't think it's wrong and I don't think eating small portions of chicken, fish or steak will give you a thousand different diseases, as some folks would have you believe.

That being said, I have a huge problem with industrial farms. The way these places treat animals is absolutely despicable.

This is why we get all of our meat, dairy and eggs from local farms that offer responsible and sustainable alternatives to those disgusting industrial operations.

Now I'm not typically one to try to force my beliefs or values onto others. If you want to eat food that came from an industrial farm, that's your business. However, if you're one of the many Americans that starts off the day with a healthy portion of eggs, I strongly recommend you read this recent Op-Ed in the New York Times called “Is an Egg for Breakfast Worth This?”

You can read it here.

It is very likely that after you've read this piece, you will either quit eggs altogether, or seek out a local, responsible egg producer in your area. Because not only are fresh eggs from a local, sustainable farm absolutely delicious (you'll never eat factory farmed eggs again), but they tend to come from chickens that are treated well. And that's not too much to ask in a civilized society.
