Too Many Eggs?

    I eat them almost every morning for breakfast, as I no longer do intermittent fasting. They are quick/easy to make, so it is hard to pass up the convenience factor.

    Honestly, though, what else can/should we be eating for breakfast. I eat bacon every now and then, but that takes awhile to cook, so it is more of a weekend treat.

    What other breakfast options are there besides BP coffee and eggs?

    BP Ice cream, any kind of seafood, bacon (that you cleverly cook ahead of time), avocados. Basically, anything that's just fat and protein.

  • Are there a lot of people who get brain fog from eggs?  I have suspected this in myself before, but I hesitate to blame the eggs.  Or maybe I'm just in denial.


    Yes Andrew68c20 I think I get brain fog from eggs - I had a sensitivity test done about 7 months ago and eggs were high on the list so I stopped eating them but when I started with BP IF recently I took them up again thinking I might have de-sensitized. But I have been finding myself catatonically tired even if I do everything BP including BP coffee Beans etc.  Had been having 2 soft boiled organic, pastured eggs for breaky with BP coffee...  (Dave's advice for woman over 40 ) Today was day 1 of not eating eggs and I am a different (happy and alert) person... Is it the eggs? - I think so... 


    Does anyone know if duck eggs are BP - I have read they have different protein and do not cause reactions in people with chicken egg sensitivity... Will try to get some and see if I react...  Would be interested to hear anyone's experience of this... I would LOVE to make BP ice cream... would duck eggs be OK for it???

  • Duck eggs should be BP, this page shows that the nutrient profile is similar to chicken eggs (just scaled up) 

    Get them from a local farm since they aren't industrially produced. Eating three right now after seeing them at a local butcher shop and they are delicious.


    Initial impression:

    They are larger than chicken eggs, with thicker/harder shells, had to thwack them pretty good on the counter to crack them well.

    They have a much larger yolk, maybe twice the size of what I am used to from chicken eggs. So if you're after the goodness of the yolk, then these may be a good bet.

    The whites cook firmer, otherwise taste like the best chicken eggs.

    The yolk seems to not break/run as easily, or maybe I'm just getting better at cooking them

    They cost $1 each out here

  • nice, i've been getting duck eggs as well, usually 2 duck eggs and 1 chicken egg for breakfast. i get mine for $5 a dozen from this lady at the farmer's market, and they are about the equivalent of 2 chicken eggs. i definitely recommend trying them if they're available and reasonably priced.

    Had totally forgotten about this thread. I've been eating eggs for the past few months now. The nausea and stuff isn't really a problem anymore, so I guess it's possible to hack an egg sensitivity. I can only guess that I had some gut issues and that eating well helped me work them out. Maybe it was a mucous thing; I'd done some longish stints of low-carbing around that time. Maybe I wasn't re-feeding properly? Either that or I just bought several bad batches of eggs that everyone in my house could tolerate except me. lol I don't eat them daily, but when I do, I tend to eat like 6-8 at a time. Now and then they'll give me a really slight stomach ache, but it doesn't last long.


    I love me some eggs. Still haven't tried duck eggs, but maybe I'll look for 'em next time I hit up the farmer's market.

  • You soft boil em? Ever since I figured out the soft boiled thing I've been pretty consistent with that. I've converted a few people to that method and they haven't looked back.

    Soft-boiled are tasty. I tend to screw up the timing so that the yolks end up fully-cooked, though. Poached is my personal favorite.


    I've been naughty recently. Been scrambling them and grating aged, grass-fed cheddar on top with a good bit of salsa. Best lunch ever!

    It seems to me that you're more likely to develop a "food allergy" or "sensitivity" by cutting a food out of your diet completely than by eating too much of it. This is especially true of anything requiring digestion by our gut bacteria (ie things that aren't protein, fat, or non-RS starch). Protein and fat are digested by our own bodily enzymes, and a real allergic reactions to most proteins is rare unless the person has a very leaky gut or their immune system is compromised in some other way.

    I was going through some old medical records and tests of mine.  12 years ago I tested high reaction to eggs and whey.  I love eggs and I am not sure of any reactions that I'm having. I wonder if a pastured egg is different from a caged hen egg with regard to food allergies.  The whey protein I can tell I'm allergic although I still use a bit of Dave's.  Pineapple is another offender and I am off the charts.  Did a recent 3 day juice cleanse and forgot about the allergy. My arthritis pain went through the roof.  Never again.
