Eggs are very nutritious and a high protein food but not something I eat often. The occasional omelette when we have breakfast out and egg that is in other foods is my intake. On the other hand, one of my boys loves making himself a brunch of scrambled eggs so they are a regular supermarket purchase. It is said to be healthy to eat up to six eggs in a week and this brings back memories of our first trip to the UK where my husband and I stayed with various members of his family. I went from eating no eggs to having 18 eggs in one week! They love a hearty breakfast consisting of bacon and eggs and it’s impossible to say no when it is placed in front of you. I couldn’t look at an egg for quite some time after that six week trip!
There are many proverbs about eggs, with the following being a few of my favourites;
“Eggs cannot be unscrambled.”
“You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.”
“Eggs and promises are easily broken.”
“Fat hens lay few eggs.”
And last but not least, one that I use quite often;
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
