Free Range Eggs and Allergies

Recently I’ve noticed that I get allergies whenever I would eat regular eggs. What regular eggs? The white ones that can be bought from groceries.

The thing is, it doesn’t happen when I eat the brown ones or the free-range eggs. They can easily be spotted because they appear to be brown and some would have spots.

How they are different is the regular eggs come from farms where the chickens would be given shots, feeds and mostly not permitted outdoors, while their free-range counterparts would be raised without the use of antibiotics, hormones and would mostly eat grass and small insects outdoors.

So earlier my brother showed me where to buy hardboiled free-range eggs. So yes I am very happy because this is a great after gym snack since I didn’t have time to prepare them myself. ^-^

These native chickens would then lay brown eggs that are more nutritious because their moms have more exposure to sunlight which the chicken’s body convert to vitamin D. The best part is since they are hormone and antibiotic free, they tend to be better for people like me!
