    Eggs

    The shell on eggs today are so thin, that they almost crack when you take them out of the carton, just the lightest taps and the crack open. Jumbo eggs get smaller and smaller it seems.

    Many years ago I would buy jumbo eggs and they were 100 calories each, today I think they are 70 calories each and the shells were far thicker.

    Used to get huge brown eggs even at supermarkets, now what they do have are half the size.

    What the hell happened to eggs

    Do you have the information on the source? That is not my experience in Northern VA. The eggs that I get from my local farmers market are superior to what I get at the grocery store.

    The sad fact is that there is a lot of fraud in the "clean eating" movement.

    They are probably just not getting enough nutrients. I would imagine they need more calcium. Sad.

    I have a carton of freerange brown organic eggs in the fridge, I looked at the carton all it says organically fed and humanely raised and the name of the farm but it has a commercial feel for some reason
