    Where would I buy natural egg powder?

      You can find NOW brand easily at http://www.amazon.com. Just be sure to purchase the plain variety, which is JUST egg protein.

    Hi Nell – i got to hear of you through the bulletproofexec.com – i see that in your recipe above you specify OMEGA 3 eggs … below is a copy and paste from a podcast transcript from bulletproofexec … what do you think?

    Regards, Greg

    “The way they make omega-3 eggs at most farms is they take
    flaxseeds, flaxseeds that are not suitable for human consumption and they feed them to the
    chickens and the chickens make these omega-3 eggs with incredibly pale white yolks. An old
    farmer friend visited the US not so long ago and saw an omega-3 egg, cracked it, looked at it,
    and said, “Was this chicken sick? I’ve only seen eggs like this from a sick chicken” and the
    answer was, “Yeah, the chicken was sick.” Chickens weren’t meant to eat a high-flax diet and
    they can barely produce eggs on those diets. Flaxseed oil isn’t particularly good for chickens or
    for people because it oxidizes so easily … In fact, you can judge the quality of a chicken’s diet just by the color of the yolk.
    You want the darkest orangest yolks you’ve ever seen. I also have had chickens several times
    and one thing that people don’t know in cities is that if you see a chicken carton that says “100%
    vegetarian fed”, what that means is, starving chickens. Chickens love bugs, they eat frogs, they
    eat meat … So, chickens
    who are vegetarians are starving and their eggs will not be as fertile and they will not be as full
    of choline and the important nutrients you need as if chickens had access to pasture and they
    could eat fresh vegetables and bugs.”

      Great question! Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post on the subject!

    Nell, if I do not have time to make anything up a shake before I head out the door, should this be the shake? I traditionally get up at 5am and am out the door by 6am and am not back home until 8am, so would this shake be a good first thing in the AM thing to have, and then at 8am I could have some eggs/green veg/fat?

    Sure, you could have it first thing in the morning; but I’d go ahead and add some greens right into the smoothie. I put raw kale in mine every time and I love it!

      Absolutely worth a try! Although it’s hard for me to know where you are coming from without knowing how you are currently fueling. Let me know if you’d like to discuss further and we can book a consult!
