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.

By buying eggs from free range hens and using them in the eggnog recipes, we are able to eliminate one of the negative aspects of most commercial egg yolks: an inflated omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.

Omega-3 and omega-6 are two kinds of polyunsaturated fats. When consumed in the proper ratio, they are health promoters. Animal and human studies have linked omega 3’s to improved cardiovascular health. Omega 3 fatty acids are associated with reducing inflammation, discouraging blood clotting and expanding blood vessels. Whenever possible, use omega 3 rich eggs in your eggnog recipes.

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
6 tbsp sugar
3 cups grassfed milk (use regular milk if you can't find grassfed milk)
1 tsp vanilla
1 or 2 pinches flour
1 or 2 pinches nutmeg


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?
