America is hooked on eggs. We use a lot of them in our favorite foods from pancakes to bagels, to cupcakes and cookies. Many of our egg-happy foods are borrowed from the French: soufflés, quiches, omelettes, remoulades, mayonnaise – just to name a few! Yet increasingly, reports of the egg distributing industry reveal the ghastly treatment of mother hens, toxic chemicals in the processing, and generally unhealthy care and feeding of the chickens that lay these ungolden eggs! The entire eggy mess makes the egg one of the more unhealthy foods we can eat, not just for our hearts, but for our souls too!

What is “Slow Food” you might ask? It is the organic and eco-friendly answer to Fast Food. Whatever McDonald’s or Taco Bell might be to you – chemically altered, fat infused, artery hardening, and diabetes-causing edible trash – “Slow Food” is the opposite. The healthy alternative to the nation’s carcinogenic diet, slow food is all-organic, nutrition-based and locally sourced.
