Brainwashed By Big Ag: Dirty Eggs

Introducing a new series I could also call, "I Can't Believe You Just Said That." Please feel free to share your own stories, either by e-mail or in the comments below. They might just become future installments!

My friend Kim told me that recently she had a houseguest who refused to eat the eggs from Kim's pasture-raised, grass-fed chickens. That was because the houseguest only eats white eggs.

Her reason? "Brown eggs are dirty."

My mother threw away the eggs I gave her from our pastured hens, too.

That reminds me of a friend telling my Guernsey cow was a bull because she had horns!

As if an udder looks like a scrotum!

It's pretty amazing to hear what people have to say sometimes. Tells you that we need to keep getting the message out there about real food.

When I showed a visiting friend that the fresh farm eggs I'd just bought included green eggs, she looked at me suspiciously and asked "what are they like inside?" Sigh.

It begs the question: What is it that has separated us from what real food looks, much less tastes, like?
