I'm a bit confused. I thought you guys were vegan. How can you eat eggs if you're vegan?
Hi Anonymous,We are both strict vegetarians, but we've just been sort of testing out the vegan diet. While neither of us drinks milk or eats much dairy anymore, we are not strictly vegan. A lot of the time we end up eating vegan because that just tends to be the food we prefer – veggies, grains, etc. But I'm definitely not giving myself the vegan label. I still haven't stopped eating cheese (I can't help myself), and I would really LIKE to start eating eggs again if I can get them from an ethical source. The difference (for us) between eating ethically produced eggs vs. chicken is that the animal isn't dying to produce the product. Some chickens lay eggs and live very long happy lives.
I love your thoughts on eating eggs again. I was an adament vegetarian for 3+ years, but as my running and weight training increased my body CRAVED more protein (that I just wasn't getting with my veg. diet). My fiance and I joined a CSA and receive weekly eggs and I LOVE them! I started out eating more egg whites, but now consume probably one whole egg/day. I sometimes cook them into my oatmeal for an added protein boost! Anyways, I love your blog and can't wait to hear more about your farm experience:)Sally
Ginna – the internship will be all summer long and ends in August. At that point, I'll need to find a job just like everyone else! Scary! :)
First off, congrats, this is completely amazing!!! I read this and was SO excited for you and SO jealous all at the same time. The photos are lovely. I bet the kitchen is amazing! How exciting that you'll be cooking farm to fork dinners. You are going to rock it girl!! And after a successful dinner you can jump in the pool ;) 2nd, I could never take eggs out of my diet! Last summer I bought only farm fresh eggs from the market in Charlotte where I sold ota.bars. Since moving to CO I at least would always buy organic/cage free, but still prefer farm fresh. I found a market that opened in the winter and have been getting farm freshies since about February. I cherish them!! I know exactly what farm they came from and don't mind forking over the extra $ for them. And, I find that eggs actually help my digestion. With all of the greens + fiber, the eggs have helped out ;) haha
This sounds amazing! I would love to have those rows of herbs, I doubt I’d ever leave that farm! :)
