Not allowed to have runny eggs! Bad badness Kersti!!
They're lion brand eggs - immunised and salmonella safe so I can :)
It's not salmonella it's about listeria. It's a bacteria that can kill a fetus at any stage of the pregnancy. It means no egg whites, no ham or any deli meat, no pre-packaged salads or anything from a salad bar. No sushi (the rice carries the bacteria), no soft serve ice cream (even in milk shakes)... In other words you can't have anything yummy until you're done breast feeding! Risk might be small but the consequences are not worth it.
Advice here is listeria no issue w eggs just salmonella (cheese/salami is problem) - we have different flocks - i totally avoided until doctor told me ok
We were told here not to have runny eggs because the egg whites are the problem...even cafe's wouldn't give me runny eggs! Just be careful, make sure the whites are fully cooked!
I believe you should only be eating hard boiled - they can't promise you won't get salmonella as that is inside the egg! And cooking till hard boiled is the safest way to insure to kill the bacteria. It means avoid homemade foods that contain raw or partially cooked eggs like mayonnaise, cake batter, eggnog etc. Runny eggs would be in there, as you can't guarantee the white has been properly cooked
Yep, my biggest issue is eating out - cheesecakes, creme brulee, salad dressings etc cos catering eggs not necessarily the guaranteed immunised ones. There was a huge deal in the UK in the 80s over bacteria in eggs and now they run this program to ensure they're safe - if you get the stamped ones they're the safest in the world.
Well that's good. Yeah eating out is very hard when pregnant! But it doesn't last forever!
What?! No cake?! Damn it.. I'm going to hate being pregnant!! That means no pavlova as well doesn't it? 😢
Pav is fine - eggs are cooked
