Free range chickens doesn't really mean much. All it really means is they are not in a cage but it doesn't mean that they are out in the field eating bugs and grass.

Here is one of hundreds of recipes for seaweed salad. http://www.food.com/recipe/seaweed-salad-247035
It is my most favorite foods to eat. I have found that people that eat it love it too, but too many people are afraid of it and refuse to try it.

Agreed, guess I should have clarified. Our eggs come from my wife's parents farm and I can watch them eat bugs and grass. Tasty.

If you live somewhere that you can raise your own chickens and are of the mind to do so it could be rewarding. Chickens can also be a perfect natural pest control in your garden.

I had two burgers for dinner. I didn't add cheese = healthy. On a side note, I rarely drink pop/sugary drinks and have been trying to get away from processed crap. I find I don't hurt as much as I used to. Shrug.

I cannot tell the difference between store bought eggs and farm fresh eggs I get from a coworker, however I prefer the fresh eggs because I know they do not contain any bullshit...the yolks are different color though

Also I would like to say because of friends like Kerry I have ventured into trying vegetarian dishes and attempting to follow her lead in staying away from processed foods. It is very difficult with a wife and kids who fight and shut you down though
That is the benefit of only having dogs. Actually I eat a lot of veggies and I am never hungry. I am down 37lbs since Jan 5th and at my lowest weight in a very very long time.

Free range chickens eat a lot of bugs and other variety that makes their eggs a lot tastier. Just crack one next to a white store egg, the yolk on the store egg is super pale in comparison.

Not a full recipe, but we roast kale about once a week. It's really good. Remove the super thick, tough stems (i.e. those as thick as your pinky), cut into bite size pieces (they shrink a bit), drizzle with some olive oil and salt, and then roast in an oven at 400* for probably 8 minutes. Keep an eye on it - once it starts to brown up it's ready, and if you don't catch it browning and take it out it will burn pretty quickly. Kale is a super dense green and when cooked like this it gets crunchy with really good flavor. Great substitute for potato chips as a side to burgers. Probably take you a try or two to master it but it's cheap.
To truly be free range they are pastured eggs (not pasturized). We buy those and the thing is that they are all different sizes and they do taste better.
I love making kale chips too. I got that recipe from wakebabe. I also make zucchini chips using the same recipe.

You are right, the correct term for truly free range is eggs from pastured chickens.

I'll start it off with my normal breakfast:

Three brown organic eggs, scrambled, very very light olive oil in the pan
Diced fresh green pepper
Diced fresh jalapeno
Diced fresh onion
Slice up whatever breakfast meat I have ready to go to add (No bacon )

Pour on plate and sprinkle with some ground chipotle pepper.

Use grass fed butter or ghee (clarified butter) instead of olive oil, olive oil shouldn't be used in high temps it is a very unstable fat for heat and more or less becomes rancid with the heat. Don't get me wrong, it's great to use in it's cold unprocessed state.

Also why no bacon? Bacon that is naturally raised and nitrate free and isn't rubbed with sugar is just fine? Probably less processed than other "breakfast meats".

What? There is a world of difference in taste - to me!! The yolks of pastured chickens fresh eggs are so much more rich and buttery tasting. Maybe if you are scrambling them you don't notice it as much though. I bet if you went back to grain fed, caged eggs you would notice a difference right away.

I love duck eggs too.
