Heirloom Eggs, Pete & Gerry’s



My morning, at least five mornings of the week, start out with a whole egg plus and egg white and some gluten-free bread or corn tortilla. (And my cholesterol is under 150!) 
My typical morning breakfast of a whole egg, egg white and some GF bread

Recently, Pete and Gerry’s sent me some samples of their gorgeous and delicious heirloom eggs to add to my morning routine. Look at these green-shelled beauties! Produced by the Ameraucana hens, they are a super fun change from your everyday white or brown shells. And for picky eaters, green shelled eggs might just tickle the funny-bone enough to try!

Pete & Gerry's Heirloom Eggs

Pete and Gerry’s has a long standing commitment to humane treatment of their chickies. From their website: “Our Ameraucana and Marans hens are Certified Humane Raised and Handled. Our farms meet all standards of the Humane Farm Animal Care Program. In fact, we were the first Certified Humane egg farm in the country. The Certified Humane Raised and Handled label guarantees that we believe in the welfare of our hens. To learn more about the Certified Humane Program, check out their website at http://www.certifiedhumane.com

Pete and Gerry’s packaging is conscious as well: “But the most important reason is that when our plastic carton is recycled again, it's less harmful to the environment than a recycled pulp carton. Our cartons are made from PETE1, the most commonly recycled plastic.” 

I will be running a contest soon for a chance to win half a dozen of these special Ameraucana eggs. Sign up to my newsletter now or stay tune to this space for more information!

Thanks to Pete and Gerry’s for the egg-celent treats!
