Can We Eat Brinjal and Egg Together? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat brinjal and egg together or one after another. Because there is no scientific proof that they have harmful interactions.

Brinjal and egg both are healthy foods. Brinjal contains fiber, manganese, and potassium1 and egg has protein, iron, and vitamin B-122.

According to Ayurveda, brinjal and egg are incompatible foods that should not be eaten together or one after another.

This is because brinjal is a sattvic food that promotes mental clarity and spiritual growth, while egg is a tamasic food that induces dullness and ignorance.

Eating them together can cause imbalance in the doshas and lead to health problems like indigestion, skin diseases, and mental disorders.

But according to science, there is no evidence that brinjal and egg have any adverse effects when consumed together.

In fact, some studies suggest that brinjal and egg may have synergistic effects on lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating brinjal and egg together you experience any side effects, such as nausea, bloating, or rash, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate them, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of brinjal and egg you consume.

Because brinjal can absorb a lot of oil during cooking and egg can be high in cholesterol, you should limit your intake to avoid excess calories and fat.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose fresh and organic brinjal and egg.

Because they have more nutrients and less pesticides than conventional ones.

You can store brinjal in a cool and dry place for up to a week and egg in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Do not store brinjal in the refrigerator or near ethylene-producing fruits like apples and bananas, as this can cause it to spoil faster.

Do not store egg at room temperature or near strong-smelling foods like garlic and onion, as this can affect its quality and flavor.

Finally, remember, brinjal is a versatile vegetable that can be used in various cuisines and dishes.

It is rich in antioxidants and may help prevent cancer and diabetes.

Egg is a complete protein that can support muscle growth and repair.

It is also a good source of choline and selenium, which are important for brain and immune health.
