Options are great, right? When you have lots of options you can choose exactly what fits your needs, wants, values, etc…. but those options come at a price. Having too many choices can be stressful and time consuming!
A quick trip to the grocery store can turn into a daylong event. After deciding which yogurt to buy, whether to buy multigrain or whole grain bread, etc. etc… you have to choose between millions of eggs that all look the same.
The best egg for you depends on what matters most to you. Nutrition? The way the hens were raised? Price? Each one of these eggs has their strong points, so decide what you value most.
