Scrambled Eggs with Spinach, Chives & Goat Cheese

Nothing is better than farm fresh eggs. When shopping for eggs go for the brown ones to help support biodiversity in the food supply. This is important for one reason: All white eggs are laid by one variety of chicken, the White Leghorn, and most of our eggs are white. If there's a devestating disease that kills White Leghorn chickens we'd be facing a huge egg shortage siilar to Ireland's great potato famine. Brown eggs aren't necessarily healthier for your body, but they're heathier for the longevity of the country's egg supply.
