Mediterranean Baked Happy Eggs in Avocado make breakfast Egg-xtra special!
Mediterranean Baked Eggs in Avocado is soooo tasty! Avocado eggs are great anyway… but with Happy Eggs they are fantastic!!! I love how the Happy Egg Co. wants us to feel good about buying their eggs because of how they treat their animals! I have learned so much valuable info from Happy Egg about what really is and isn’t free range.
I’ve always thought there was “organic” and “non-organic”. Apparently, I have been wrong… very wrong indeed! Let me explain and shed some light. Happy Egg’s “Free-est of the Free Range” treatment. What does this mean? Why does it matter? What’s the difference between Happy Egg’s and other brands? All of the answers are below. 🙂
When brands say, “Organic” this means– hens have access to outdoors, but often that access is a tiny door inside a crowded barn that few hens will actually use; plus, there is no guarantee that when used, they’ll have pasture outside.
When brands say “Standard Free Range” this means-– to meet HFAC standards for free range, the required minimum outdoor space that farms must provide is just 2 square feet per bird. Happy Egg calls themselves “Free-est of the Free Range” because they give their birds 10x more square feet per bird and over 8 acres of outdoor access for their hens to forage across each day!
When brands say “Cage Free” this means– Hens do not live inside a wire cage, but also means hens do not get to go outside- or conditions are cruelty free. Permits just 1.5 square feet of space per bird, typically inside a barn.
When brands say anything, “Caged” this means– Unless packaging says otherwise, you are most likely buying eggs from caged hens. Hens spend their entire life indoors in overcrowded wire cages without enough space to even stretch their wings.
Side note: My little Carter bug LOVES Mediterranean Baked Happy Eggs in Avocado. He loves all eggs. Every which way!! He takes after his momma and is a total egg lover too. 🙂 Now… doesn’t that make so much more sense when Happy Egg’s say “Free-est of the Free Range”!!?!? Gosh, it sure does to me! I am so happy to know that at the Happy Egg Co., they truly love and care about their birds and that makes me feel so great about loving their eggs!
How incredible that all of this magic comes from 31 family farms in Missouri and Arkansas! Choose Happy Eggs and know WHY you are choosing them too! And enjoy the taste difference– you don’t have to know why to do that. 😉 Look for Happy Eggs signature yellow carton at your local grocery stores. Your taste buds will thank you!! 🙂
