His Majesty, the egg, is one of the most complete and useful foods in the human diet. They belong to the group of high-protein foods and can replace meat; one serving of two medium or even larger eggs can be equivalent to one average serving of meat.

Eggs from organic farms are of much better quality than those from mass-farmed and mass-fed poultry. The eggs have a richer flavor, and the yolks are a deeper yellow color. The taste difference is especially noticeable in dishes like eggs Benedict or eggs Florentine, where the eggs are a key ingredient. Buying eggs from a farm is also more humane, as the hens are typically allowed to roam freely and have a more natural diet. When buying eggs, look for farms that produce them using sustainable practices. You can often find these at farmers markets or other local retailers.
