National Egg Month
Did you know May is National Egg Month? I thought I'd share a little information about the cruelty that takes place in the egg industry (even with free-range). I find it empowering to learn more about where my food comes from and the impact it has on the lives of other living creatures. I hope you do as well. I'm in no way perfect, just trying to be a little more compassionate in the way I live my life. So in honor of this month, I'm boycotting eggs. We don't eat many eggs in our home. When we do, it's usually when I've baked something with them. And even then, it's usually eggs from rescued chickens.
The eggs in these pictures are from rescued turkeys, ducks, geese and chickens. These eggs weren't appropriate for consumption, because the flocks had just been dewormed. But they sure are beautiful, aren't they?
