Egg Allergies: What Can I Even Eat Now??

It’s funny, I was visiting with The Mermaid about this egg thing, mulling over all the things that eggs are in and she said to me, “It probably would be better to focus on the things that you can eat rather than the things that you can’t.”. One of the things that I love about training with The Mermaid is that is pretty much her attitude about everything. She is always positive, always supportive and always says the exact thing that I need to hear.

So while the list of things that I cannot eat, or should try to eat only every four days (I don’t understand the logic between the every four days thing…) is long…

  2. Dried eggs
  3. Egg solids
  4. Breaded and batter-fried foods
  5. Caesar salad dressing
  6. Cream pies, fillings, and puffs
  7. Crepes and waffles
  8. Custards
  9. Puddings
  10. Ice cream
  11. Eggnog
  12. Eggrolls
  13. Egg substitutes
  14. Coffee drinks like cappuccino (eggs are sometimes used to help create the foam)
  15. Lollipops and other candies
  16. Marshmallows and marzipan
  17. Mayonnaise
  18. Meatloaf and meatballs
  19. Meringue and frostings
  20. Pastas
  21. Sauces, including Hollandaise and tartar sauce
  22. Simplesse (fat substitute)
  23. Soufflés
  24. Soups and consommés

Eggs by Other Names:

  1. Albumin
  2. Globulin
  3. Lecithin
  4. Lysozyme
  5. Ovalbumin
  6. Ovovitellin

So, what can I eat? Well, in a nut shell, most healthy foods… So unprocessed foods, like fruits, veggies, meats, nuts, ect are obviously safe foods. So maybe, in the long run, this is just going to be healthier all around? Right?
