If I were to be able to replace the fish in my diet, I would beg for more eggs from SWAMI.
The yolk is a diamond food for me.
I'm allowed 9 each week.
I really could eat 18.
If I were out of multivitamins one day, I would instantly eat 6 yolks for breakfast.
I would make sure I had all 3 in one week: quail, chicken and duck.

Strange thing - was intestinally off yesterday, 3 hours after my yummy 2-egg breakfast.
Don't think it was the eggs' "fault", though.

Quoted from ruthiegirl
I don't find eggs to be ALL that energizing. Yes, they're a good source of protein and healthy fats, but I don't find eggs to be particularly nourishing as compared to other animal proteins. I eat a lot of them because they're economical, but I'd feel just fine if I didn't eat them at all, so long as I got enough protein from red meat, fish, and poultry.
I agree.  They're neutral on my SWAMI, which is how I feel about them.  If it weren't for the two tablespoons of ghee I have with them, they wouldn't satisfy me at all.  Unless, perhaps, I were to eat 8 of them.

I use two eggs as a sort of pizza crust, scrambled then fried on both sides in a pan.  Then top with fried-in-ghee peppers or zucchini and melted whole milk mozz cheese to glue it all together on top.

OTOH, lamb is wonderful.  And coffee, of course.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I love lamb too. I think I would be ready to choke SWAMI if it takes lamb away from me.

What a great idea! Totally grain-free pizza crust!
Any other cool ideas for how to use eggs, this is the place for 'em,

(even though How To Use/Tweak SWAMI has been moved by Admin/Mod to another thread, thank you - See "Food Ratings" in the SWAMI Forum).

I eat eggs about once every 4-6 weeks...when suddenly out of nowhere I crave them....eat them and
for the next 4-6 weeks have no desire to eat them again...In fact, if I eat them when I'm not craving them they make me feel itchy.... This is how it's been my entire life...There has got to be some nutrients in eggs my body decides it wants and has to have...and then it's satisfied from whatever two eggs might provide.  On an allergy test, eggs tested as my highest allergen...which most of the time, seems to be true!

I guess it's the amino acid profile in them. I have heard they are easier to digest after a bout with diarrhea when they are cooked lightly.

Are we all talking about organic eggs from pasture-raised chickens? Never mind 100% all natural or hormone/antibiotic free, if they're fed corn, we're going to get corn (I imagine this would be the case with eggs, though I've never seen it mentioned here beyond eating the chicken itself).

Anyone know?

And if they scavenge flies, you're going to get flies. Read the article and follow the link. Chickens love to eat bugs and are the best pest control versus flies on an organic farm, says Mother Earth News.

I'm fortunate to have a source for organic, pasture raised, junk-free eggs. I can attest to their exquisite flavor and texture (and nutrient content, presumably). They aren't eating pesticide laden anything, but I don't know if their food source includes corn meal. Winter months particularly.

I'll ask my HFS about this, but does anyone know if the corn lectins would show up in the eggs? It would seem there is a degree of separation between eating the chicken -Vs- the egg, but I wouldn't assume this.  Nor would I stop eating eggs if there is. Gotta draw the line somewhere.

Also hoping there is a degree of separation between the eggs and the flies     


PS Just did some searches and it seems organic chicken feed consists wheat,  barley, oats, and soy.

The more I think about it, though, if the lectins were present in the eggs, the eggs would not be recommended in the first place, right?

Regarding egg quality....I have found an "heirloom" egg....organic, free range and out of all eggs,
this seems to taste better to me than most.  And it doesn't give me that "I'm going to puke" feeling
when I smell them cooking like other eggs often do.  That's always been one of my issues....the
smell (that I can perceive) but nobody else can when eggs cook in a pan with oil...(even the very best of oil) I can even "smell" that off odor when eggs are hard boiled and then peeled.  There must be something about the feed that really bothers me.

This is what I buy although it does say they've been fed cereal grains....even though pasture fed.

http://www.heirloom-eggs.com/MaransBrown

And then I wonder...given I'm gluten intolerant, are any of these "grains" gluten grains?  Is this what
causes random but insane itching when I try to eat eggs?

Geez, I thought it was just me. We only poach, bake or hard boil eggs in this house beacause I can't tolerate the smell of them frying. Ghastly!

Love eating them that way, Over very easy, with toast.

I love them over easy too....on a gluten free toasted bagel....

Exactly. I was going to say slaughterhouse incinerator, but that would be a little too abstract for most.

My guess is that there is a protein here that you aren't getting anywhere else, so when your body gets low, it wants the eggs.  Once the need is fulfilled, the body rejects the eggs until it needs that specific part again.  

It may be the part you are allergic to is the part you aren't absorbing from anywhere else and only get it from the eggs...

Is there any food more instantly invigorating than eggs?
(Just ate breakfast - 2 over easy and it was ... powerful.)
For non-Bs too?

Quoted from san j
"What is it about eggs, that the second you taste them -- if you need them, I guess -- you're like Clark Kent becoming Superman?

Quoted from san j
Wondering precisely what it is.
It can be almost magical, like an Energy Potion.

Quoted from san j
I feel the yolk is particularly immediate in its effects, if it's pierced and runs -- from a fried or poached or boiled egg. It's like what happens to Popeye when he eats his spinach!


Well, wouldn't you know it...Just had dinner here:
1. Salad vinaigrette with feta
2. Hardboiled eggs (warm) and raw carrots with horseradish mayo

...and as soon as I tasted the egg yolk it was like boingngngng...
the sun coming out.
Pretty dang amazing, time and time and time again.

Sounds like the heat was way too high. Some older people call that old brown stuff "skin." An elegantly fried egg has no "skin!"
