MS and Diet: Eggs

Vicki Health Guide April 05, 2010
  • Did you eat your share of Easter Eggs?Yesterday was Easter, the day of many boiled eggs. Some MS diets, especially vegetarian, recommend MSers stay away from eggs.

    Fun question!

     

    I did not directly eat any eggs this weekend.  Personally, I love eggs and a good egg-and-cheese sandwich is often my goto quick meal.  The protein found in eggs helps to keep me going, especially for breakfast or brunch.

    Fun question!

     

    I did not directly eat any eggs this weekend.  Personally, I love eggs and a good egg-and-cheese sandwich is often my goto quick meal.  The protein found in eggs helps to keep me going, especially for breakfast or brunch.

     

    However, yesterday I did partake in a rich, decadent chocolate mousse my boyfriend's mother had made.  I've never made chocolate mousse and later looked up recipes to get a better idea of what nutritional value was involved.  Yikes, loads of eggs, sugar, and whipping cream.  No wonder my body was saying "stop! stop!" while I was enjoying the taste.

     

    So, indirectly, I did have some Easter eggs.  Although hard boiled might have been better.  Undecided

    since my boys are grown and left the nest i don't do the easter basket thing any more but eggs seem to be a staple in my diet cooked any way but my number one comfort food is soft-boiled eggs served on cut up toast--i never have noticed any difference in my ms when i eat eggs.

    Do chocolate eggs count?

    I do eat eggs, but they have to be scrambled or in omelets. Does that count? Do they maintain their nutritional value? I hope so! I love 'em.
