    do you eat eggs on a weekly basis? [​IMG]

    Just curious. I tend to eat eggs daily and I know this is probably not good for me but I love them! Are they really that bad? [​IMG]

    Yes it is good for you!

    I have vowed not to eat another egg until my girls start laying.

    that person was downright WRONG!

    the gov. is telling everyone that this margarine is way better for you than eggs but a teaspoon of that stuff will wreak more havoc on your weight and health than millions of eggs!

    I would most anything can be bad for you in large quantities. You probably shouldn't eat a dozen eggs a day for breakfast, just like if you ate a dozen apples you'd be sitting on the toilet all day. [​IMG] It's all about balance...lol...this coming from me, who clearly is unbalanced in the sweets department.

    I agree with the whole margarine thing too. We only use real butter, mainly because most margarines have the same amount of fat as butter and margarine is also structurally similar to plastic. :eek:

    I agree on the margarine and butter - we only use butter.

    We're not eating many eggs..... cause my girls aren't laying very many - we get perhaps 1 a day from the bantams, and today we got a weird one I believe the first from one of my standards....
    But once they get going, we'll eat as many as we can......

    [​IMG]

    I don't believe they're BAD fo ryou to eat too many - every couple of weeks the health industry comes up with something else that will kill us..... I don't listen anymore! [​IMG]

    We eat them in fits and spurts...we may eat a dozen in a week, then we may not touch an egg for the next. It also depens on if I'm baking, making eggs for breakfast, or cooking them in something.

    We were using real butter for the longest. Hydrogenated anything is bad for you. We stopped using it when we were both told our cholesterol is elevated, so the hubby started buying I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. I don't really like it, plus it's got the hydrogenated stuff in it, and it doesn't do as well in baking. I'm seriously gonna try to sneak some real butter back into the house.
