    @Diane_56 - please ignore my post!


    Am I the only person on earth who doesn't like eggs?o_O

    I do believe they are very nutritious and a rather essential low carb food though, and I can manage a well done omelette. or when I was still eating bread, French toast, but otherwise they have to be well disguised in muffins, pastryless quiches, etc, before I'll go near them. But the very thought of soft, lightly cooked (AKA IMO sloppy) eggs gives me the creeps! :banghead::yuck:

    My Mum used to say "If you have eggs, you always have a meal" bless her:) I eat loads, hard boiled as snacks, fried/scrambled for a meal or crustless quiche with lots of veggies and cheese x

    when i was dyslipidemia 2 years ago, my doctor told me that I shouldn't eat an eggs. So, I stop eat eggs for 2-years till now. But when I joined our forum, I learn alot of new things.
    We still eat eggs even we're dyslipidemia???

    It is very, very old science that the cholesterol in eggs and some other foods will cause high lipids. This has been debunked with newer science. Our livers make our cholesterol as and when it is needed. If we have eaten eggs or any other dietary cholesterol our livers will just make a bit less. Only a small percentage of dietary cholesterol is used to make lipids - about 15% I believe. The benefits of eating eggs far outweigh any potential risks

    I can make soufflé omelettes - the yokes are beaten with a little warm water and cooked to form the base, then the whites are put on top in meringue style, and cooked gently under the grill, then the cheese is put on top and melted - the result is flipped over on itself to make a huge half circle gently oozing melted cheese - delicious.

    Plenty of oily fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, and tuna. They all contain omega 3. Others helpful things are losing weight (if you need to), reducing carbohydrates, more exercise.

    It was - I made a coffee & walnut muffin with 2 eggs & microwaved in a bowl instead of a mug, which will last me several days.
