Super-healthy, the Best Eggnog Recipes Come from Free-Range Hens
Alright, why do the best eggnog recipes come from free range hens? Because hens that are allowed to graze naturally eat a variety of grasses, bugs and worms. Consequently, they are healthy and produce healthy eggs--even better for us than most people imagine.
Caged hens in most commercial systems (95% of all eggs sold today) eat mostly corn meal. Corn has a lot of omega-6's and very few omega-3's (omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 83 to 1), thus the out-of-balance fatty acid profile in the egg yolks.
In short, why are these recipes the best eggnog recipes? Because they taste great and they're all made from heart-healthy, omega 3 rich grassfed eggs and milk.
"Simply the Best" Eggnog Recipe
4 grassfed eggs
Beat the eggs thoroughly. Grassfed eggs will have that beautiful golden orange hue. Add the sugar and flour. Stir vigorously. (You'll probably be tempted to sneak a taste at this point. Go ahead, it tastes like the Berlinerkrunzer cookie dough my mother used to make.)
Add the milk, vanilla and nutmeg. Stir thoroughly again. Chill and serve.
Some people prefer to add the nutmeg in the serving cup. Either way--it's delicious!
Traditionally made at Christmas, this is obviously one of the best eggnog recipes around. It's also one of the simplest. Why wait for the holiday season?
