An egg-free diet is a diet that eliminates eggs and foods made with eggs. Simple enough, right?
But maybe now you’re wondering why would anyone do that.
Well, that’s easy: just as with many foods, people can be allergic to eggs. Having an egg allergy means that your immune system reacts to the proteins found in eggs, and the main proteins that can cause it are those found in egg whites.
Some signs you might be allergic to eggs:
- flushed face, rashes, itchy skin
- your eyes, face, lips and tongue might swell
- you might have trouble swallowing
- you might even feel anxious!
So, if you find yourself having these signs after consuming eggs or products made with eggs, you might consider an egg-free diet.
What foods to avoid?
While many foods contain eggs, here are some of the most important ones to know about:
- Egg noodles
- French toast (yes, we know )
- Hollandaise sauce
