Xfit Games and Good Eggs
Remember last week when I mentioned not to get me started on eggs? Well, today I’m going to get started on eggs. This conversation will be ongoing as the way we have access to food in California changes and our understanding of how important it is to eat food locally and from responsible farmers and processors. Did you know this about eggs in California? Now that we are 6 months into Prop 2, it’s nice to see that there hasn’t been any follow up “egg shortage” or mass panic stories at the local market because you couldn’t get eggs. It will be interesting to see over the course of the year if the increase in the overall price of eggs really does cause any significant commotion. This WSJ article is interesting as to the possible economic repercussions from the implementation of the law. Have you noticed an uptick in pricing in your favorite breakfast/brunch spot? It’s likely that Prop 2 is one of the reasons your breakfast tab is going up. But it’s also a start to a greater future for all of us. If every state gets in on the action, the prices will regulate and everyone wins. I guess one of the points I’m trying to make is to not take your food for granted. Every meal has a cost, all the way down the line, and the more of an interest you take in what goes into your body the better off we all get to be.
We’ll continue this talk and in the meantime read this fantastic article, showcasing our very own Connolly Ranch here in Napa, about why pasture-raised eggs are the only way to go. And if you get down to the bottom of the article there are some awesome recipes to check out.
