Eggs are truly an indispensable part of our diet. Every midnight craving can be satiated with omelette toast. Gym-goers say they cannot get enough of egg whites. Whether you want a source of protein that is somewhere in between vegetarian and meaty or are simply drooling over the exotic ways to make eggs, the nutrient-packed food is a special component of our diet that we love.

However, should eggs be eaten on hot summer days? While you may have personal beliefs about should you or should not be eating eggs on certain days, we want to say that eating eggs in the summer is okay. Actually, eggs are being eaten in such large quantities now, that one simply needs to wonder how much is too much instead of when and how. Many of us simply gorge on eggs every day because they are so versatile, hard-core egg lovers consume eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is for them that the question holds a lot of importance.

The answer is better than you think: eggs are a good source of protein, vitamin D, B6, calcium, iron, and minerals, thus it is absolutely okay to consume them during the summer. The misconception is that eggs have a lot of heat, and hence, they may do more harm than good during the summer. But actually, they do not cause any ingestion or stomach problems, as long as you eat eggs in moderation.

Many people eat ten eggs a day! However healthy or filling that may be, it is certainly not normal for an average person to eat those many eggs every single day. If you’d like to consume two eggs a day, that may not be an issue. However, avoid any scenarios of overconsumption. That itself may lead to problems.

Any excess addition to your diet can lead to serious health issues. One must consult an expert before doing so.
