I often stand staring blankly at the choice of eggs at my local grocery co-op. There are so many different classifications and labels to decipher, it’s difficult to understand what they all mean exactly, and how to weigh the various pro’s and con’s of how they’re produced. Should I buy the brown, organic eggs? The multi-colored free range eggs (but they’re not organic!)? Or maybe the locally produced, farm fresh eggs (not organic, and they’re all white!)?
I always end up buying a different brand each and every time I go, cycling through the selection in the hopes of balancing out the negative aspects of each dozen with the positive aspects of another. Irrational, really.
