Egg Advice

There is a lot of interest in how what you eat can affect your rosacea. Some foods can cause a flareup in rosacea symptoms. Also the makeup of your diet in general will affect your health for sure and also your rosacea.

Eggs are not one of the more common rosacea triggers. But of course, every rosacean is different, so we can never say "never" on any food trigger. Give them a try and watch your rosacea to see if it reacts. Hopefully, it won't. :)

There will come a point when the spammers are rather more helpful than the members.. ;)

Really??? Care to put your money where your mouth is, Mister? :)

Anyway, I have deleted the multivitamin spammer's post, so your message stands alone and seems even more wryly cryptic than usual.

Kindest regards,

LOL I had to read back to see who was spamming! Glad you cleared that one up, Aurelia!

I have no problems with eggs. I have learnt that eggs contain a good amount of protein, good fat and low in carbs. Perfect combo.

You may not like this idea but you could try it if you like...

Grab yourself a blender
Crack 2 or 3 eggs into it (free-range are best)
Add a tablespoon of a good quality unsalted butter
Sprinkle of a good quality ocean sea salt (the good natural salt - unprocessed)
Whizz it all together and drink

If it tastes awful to you (as probably for most), add in some natural yoghurt, a banana and/or some berries for flavour. Kind of like Egg Nog without the alcohol.

This should keep you full even past lunch time.

Please do let me know if you try it. Feedback would be great.

You aren't afraid of salmonella from raw eggs? I thought raw eggs were a total "no no" due to bacteria. Since I don't eat meat, I like to eat eggs now and then for protein (have to watch the cholesterol, however) but I always cook them.

I'm not afraid of salmonella. I have 8 chickens and know that the eggs are as fresh as they possibly can be - fresh from the chooks' bum to me! LOL If it worries anyone else, add a small amount of boiling water to the blender in order to par cook the eggs.

I read about an elderly bloke who ate around 20 eggs a day. His cholesterol was lower than those of similar age who did not eat as many eggs a day. Through other reading I have done over the years, I do not believe that eggs create a problem with cholesterol levels. I do not believe that all we read about diet in the media is correct. That is, the diet pyramid should be turned up-side-down to maintain a truly healthy body.

Just my opinion from what I have read.

Okay, since you have your own chickens, I can see why you are not worried. I would love to have some chickens in the back yard, I grew up with chickens and like them, but we have not figured out how to do it yet. Maybe one of these days.
