Be a good EGG !

After today's FDA inspection of those egg-recall farms in Iowa, you can make a difference in your food purchasing.

EGGS - KNOW WHERE THEY COME FROM !!

Taken from John Robbins Post on Huffington Post:

From an animal welfare point of view, cage free eggs are far from perfect, but they are better. And from a public health perspective, cage-free eggs are a necessary and urgently needed improvement.



What can you do?
