  • Undercooked Eggs

    Ugh. I think I ate some undercooked scrambled eggs today. From the middle of the meal, I started to feel nauseous (not sure why I ate the rest, but I did). I've had major nausea & been "sick" (not vomit, the other one) ever since. Any suggestions to feel better besides just letting it pass through???

    If you're losing fluids (vomit or the other one ;-) ) make sure you're replacing them. Drink plenty, at least water, coconut water would be great if you can get it and if you can stomach it.

    Probiotics maybe?..

      Echoing Misabi, a little shot of probiotic is a good idea when gut flora get out of whack. Something with a wide variety of cultures is good, like kefir. Feel better soon!

        Yep, funny I was thinking of the capsules but I really should've thought about natural yoghurt & kefir.

        My dogs had a bad case of food poisoning last year (thanks to some "bargain" chicken frames that I picked up at a local supermarket for $0.70/bag instead of the usual $2.99 +.... alarm bells should've been ringing, but they were even selling them as soup bones instead of pet food!).
        Gave them some natural yoghurt each and they picked right up, but only had a little so they got bad again the next day. Had to go home to pick up some that I'd made earlier in the week (a coupla hours drive, we were staying at the beach a week) and after a cup of that morning and night, they were right as rain

          The chance of getting sick from *raw* eggs is very small. Dr. Mercola, who I don't particularly trust, says 1 in 30,000. The chance of getting sick from undercooked eggs is much smaller. Probably coincidence. I don't eat raw eggs but many here do.

              True as long as you're talking about pastured eggs from healthy animals. CAFO eggs, I would suspect, are a bit more dangerous. After all, who knows what conditions the hen was in, and how long those eggs sat in the supply chain before they ended up on your plate.

              Raw eggs from the farmer's market, though, I don't even refrigerate those. They stay fresh just fine at room temperature for 2-3 weeks. On the rare occasion that you get a rotten one, you'll know right away from the smell (and the way it explodes when you crack it). I have never gotten sick from raw eggs.

                  I've noticed that I've been getting sick pretty frequently from eating eggs ever since I switched to local/organic eggs. My guess is that the egg shells maybe aren't as clean when they come from smaller farms and they contaminate the inside of the egg when you crack them. I just posted a similar topic a couple days ago after being sick for the last couple days, which started right after I ate local eggs. I'd say it's been happening at least once every couple weeks. I'm switching back to the bigger name brands and am going to either boil them or make sure they are fully cooked from now on.

                    you know you are eating free range eggs when you find a bug in the egg when you crack it open. I grew up on a farm with our own chickens - used to happen once a year or so. Yes small producers eggs are less likely to be clean. Be carefull breaking the eggs and don't use your finger to swab the white out of the yolk. I recommend washing/drying the eggs first or cooking well.

                      That wouldn't do it unless you cracked the egg open and let it sit at room temperature for a while. If you're cracking them onto a frying pan there's no time for the bacteria to spread.

                      I usually undercook my eggs because just like an undercooked steak, they taste better that way ;-)

                        Dr. Mercola was specifically talking about conventional eggs.

                          You're better off not eating eggs.
