Anyway, I eat at least 2 a day to help boost my protein, and if I don't have my eggs in the morning I totally drag. I also can't stomach meat right now, and not the biggest bean fan (not to mention they digest badly for me if I eat enough to really be a big protein factor, this pregnancy's thrown my tummy for a loop!).
But I hear the argument that they are an allergen - my 2 yr old still can't eat them. However, our naturopath points to new studies showing exposure to things inutero can actually help child tolerate them. Of course, I also get my eggs organic, free range and straight from an herb farm where the happy little feathered creatures peck amongst the herbs. So, they are super extra tasty, and have all those extra nutrients (same thing I read mentioned the vita k thing is only true for "grazing" free range eggs).
That's just my .02
