    I was wondering how many folks are eating there eggs raw.
    I do so occasionally, but always get the eggs from healthy chickens.

    My eggs are hardly primal at all, sadly. I'm allergic to/intolerant of yolks, so I have to buy cartons of egg whites. It's a sad state of affairs. I miss whole eggs terribly (I developed the issue when I was 11 or so).

    Raw??? Ewuuuue, I won't even eat runny yolks.

    My eggs are either well scrambled with enough other ingredients so I don't taste the eggs, or my absolute favorite, made into custard using & . Hard boiled in salads is acceptable too, with plenty of dressing to mask the taste.

    Did I mention I don't like eggs?

    If I use raw or undercooked eggs, it's generally as an ingredient in something else, like mayonaise or caesar dressing.

    Always throw a couple raw eggs in when I make a smoothie.

    I love me a 5 min hard boiled egg. Cooked egg white holding in the gooey goodness of the yolk.

    Lectins in the egg white makes me say no to raw eggs on a regular basis. There also the chance (albeit very small) chance of salmonella contamination, and its not exactly high quality eggs im buying!

    Well, I buy the highest quality eggs available to me right from the chicken farm. And I do lightly pasturize them before making them into mayonnaise or anything else, because I had a bad case of store bought ones that made us feel funny for a day or so when eaten raw. So even though these chickens I buy from are good, I don't want to take a chance.

    I scramble my eggs and douse them with hot sauce since I generally hate most eggs without masking the flavor. I will eat them on a salad if hardboiled.....

    Just adding another comment: I don't think raw was necessarily how eggs were consumed traditionally. Seen Les Stroud cook a goose egg on bonfire coals and I'm sure that there are other ways to cook eggs with low heat aswell.

    Cooked makes more protein available.
