Recently, a woman selling me eggs at my farmers market apologized for the price. At $6.00 a dozen, she felt they may be too expensive. I assured her they were not. What else can you buy for fifty cents that is high in protein, low in salt, sugar, and fat, and contains only about 80 calories? Add to that the versatility of eggs, and they seem like a genuine bargain to me. When I got home, I hard boiled a few and added them to some fresh salad greens, homemade croutons, and sliced red onion, and tossed it all together with some mustard vinaigrette. It was delicious. In fact, it was a lot tastier and healthier than a large coffee beverage that costs nearly as much. So, the next time you hear someone complaining about the price of eggs, you may want to politely suggest that they think again.
