Anonymous asked: Something you might want to check out, regarding the humane eggs: http://humanemyth.org/
There are so many loopholes in the industry; it's shocking! So packaged eggs are never truly guaranteed to be completely humane, unless one actually visits the place and knows the farmers personally (so local would probably be the best, and there would be no wasteful packaging required).
I personally wouldn't eat eggs even if they were truly humane because they are just pockets of cholesterol and they do make me queasy (I was raised on a lacto-vegetarian diet, went vegan in high school). But good luck to you, whichever you choose!
Thanks for your input!! I really appreciate hearing everyones’ thoughts, because I am still working out my own. I grew up in an organic household and mainly ate locally. I have always “tried” to be a sustainable eater - but never really incorporated making drastic changes in my diet until now. I am attempting the vegetarian thing now, but still feel like I could eat locally and sustainably without being a vegan or vegetarian. I really care about not eating chemicals or unnatural products. I love animals, but I don’t see a big difference between exploiting cows for meat and exploiting underprivileged rural workers for soy plantations. So I am still working out my thoughts on whats good for the world and my body.
That website was really helpful, thanks again!!!
