    My husband and I purchase/consume anywhere from 2-4 dozen per week. If you're feelin' good, I say keep eatin' them!

    Dodibott, all Groks did not live in the extreme northern and southern hemispheres. Hens lay eggs year-round in the tropics!

    Just remember that could be a decent Omega 6 load that needs mitigated.

    Umm, I live in Canada and my hens lay all year too! They just need a little shelter of course, as do we all in this part of the world.

    As to the protein thing, if you can make your own meat stock it's a protein sparer so you can eat a little less meat that way. Can you buy whole chickens? That would probably be pretty economical, you can use the whole bird and even boil the carcass twice for broth.

    I was wondering about eggs myself. I currently eat around 15 a week but thinking of upping that to around 30 as they are not only cheaper than meat, they are also very practical for taking around (boiled).

    Eggs are Mother Nature's healthy convenience food. (Currently eating around 14 a week, but aiming to get this back up to around 21).

GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    The correct answer is *263,344. When you get to that many eggs eaten, stop.


    *Lifetime.

    Funny thing about the poll... it specifically asks about medium eggs... which is not what I usually get.
    Most of the farmer's market eggs range in size kind of "you get what you get," and unless there's an amazing deal on medium eggs at the supermarket, I usually get XL or Jumbo (pastured, organic, cage free, free roaming, Omega 3... those are the buzzwords I look for on supermarket eggs).... I find I'm happy with a single xl or jumbo fried egg, whereas I want 2 medium fried eggs, so it's usually worth it to pay an extra 60 for the xl vs. the medium.

    SO and I go through about 1-4 dozen per week, depending on:
    Is he working? (job provides catered meals, including full hot breakfast w/custom eggs/omelets)
    Did I hard-boil any? (I will eat more if I can grab 'n' go)
    Am I in a breakfast kind of mood? (usually not hungry when I first wake up, and I'm often on the way to work within 30min of waking - but there are always exceptions, like days when I know my boss won't be in or I'm working from home, or...)
    Am I eating breakfast for dinner? (YUM)
    Am I trying a new strange recipe involving eggs?

    I eat 2-3 eggs almost every day. If I don't eat any eggs one day, I'll probably eat 4 the next day. They're cheap (even the organic, cage free ones!), tasty, versatile, filling, what's not to love?
