Eating eggs in summer.

.
I've been AWOL from this blog for a while. So much so that Joy Vazapully, who posted the following question, has disappeared from the blogland. I hope the eggs didn't get her.

Joy's question was: "There is a belief that one should not eat eggs in summer, do you think there is any reason?"

The short answer is no.

The longer answer is that, if they affect you in any way, don't eat them but apart from that no.

I know of no reason to be wary of eggs in summer. Obviously normal handling rules apply and you should be aware of the issue of temperature abuse and bacterial growth but that is a normal food hygiene issue and not specific to summer as such.

  1. Maybe that had to do with the habit of some people, who to this day, never place eggs under refrigeration? In fact, just a year ago, as I was discussing eggs with a local British expat, and he offered me a carton of his fresh eggs from his own hens, he remarked, "Mind you, don't put those in the 'fridge, does eggs no good, that."
    Three of the six eggs were green liquid... the cats enjoyed the other three.
    (I'm a cook by trade, I ALWAYS keep eggs under proper refrigeration!)

  2. Could do, Kitty. But that is not really summer specific; I keep eggs in the fridge all year round. Joy's issue seemed to be more to do with not eating eggs in summer; as if something awful would happen to you if you did.

  3. in my country India , most people do not eat eggs in summer , they have a false reason for it , they say that eggs have a hot effect on our body , that means if you eat eggs in summer , there is already too much heat in the outside and the eggs will produce extra heat in your body that will make you uncomfortable or ill , i feel its just a wrong perception.

  4. I think we should eat one egg everyday...if you feel excessive heat then have some curd in the evening...it'll cool you off...

    1. Your all answers are wrong... B'coz i eating 15 eggs per day in summers. And there is not any problem. But you have to use egg in b/w 3 days.. And most important don't eat the yellowish part of egg in summer. It have high amount of heat.

  7. Well in India and pak there are a lot of myths surrounding food.This hot and cold effect of foods and ill effects of certain food combinations seems to be based in ayurveda.I think its not true in most cases.
    I want to find out if eggs are bad in summer because I have issues eating egg in summer.I don't know whats the reason.I can eat as many eggs I want in winter but in summer if I eat just 1 egg everyday,in a couple of days i get rashes all over.
