Can We Eat Eggs and Fruits Together? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat eggs and fruits together or one after another. Because there is no strong scientific evidence to show that they are harmful or beneficial when combined.

Eggs and fruits both are healthy foods. Eggs contain protein, vitamin B12, choline, iron, and other nutrients.

Fruits have vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals.

According to Ayurveda, eggs and fruits should not be eaten together, as they have different tastes, energies, and post-digestive effects.

Ayurveda believes that combining foods with incompatible qualities can impair digestion, create toxins, and cause diseases.

But according to science, there is not much evidence to support the idea that eggs and fruits are harmful when consumed together.

Some studies have suggested that eggs may increase the absorption of carotenoids, a type of antioxidant, from fruits and vegetables.

However, more research is needed to confirm the benefits and risks of this combination.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first. If after eating eggs and fruits together you experience any side effects, such as indigestion, bloating, gas, or nausea, then stop combining them. And if you can tolerate them, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of eggs and fruits you consume.

Because too much of anything can be unhealthy, and some fruits may have high amounts of sugar or acid that can affect your blood sugar levels or teeth enamel.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose fresh, organic, and local eggs and fruits whenever possible.

Because they are more nutritious, safer, and better for the environment than processed, imported, or genetically modified ones.

You can store eggs in the refrigerator for up to three weeks, and fruits in a cool, dry place for up to a week.

Do not store eggs or fruits in direct sunlight, near heat sources, or in plastic bags, as they can spoil faster or lose their quality.

Finally, remember, eggs are a versatile and nutritious food that can be enjoyed in many ways.

You can boil, scramble, poach, or bake them, and add them to salads, sandwiches, soups, or casseroles.

Fruits are a delicious and refreshing snack that can satisfy your sweet tooth and provide you with vitamins and antioxidants.

You can eat them raw, make smoothies, juices, jams, or pies, or add them to cereals, yogurt, or oatmeal.
