Here I am, sitting in my room with a pint of ice cream when I get the sudden urge to look at the label. Turns out, ice cream has eggs in it. I checked online & it was confirmed, most ice cream has eggs in it. This got me thinking...why is it that while pregnant you are told that raw eggs are a no-no when it comes to what is safe to eat...yet we make so many exceptions?? For example...nobody ever questions a pregnant woman who eats ice cream, mayo, or most salad dressings...but you are scolded if you eat cookie dough, cake batter, or other obvious egg-filled goodies. So my question is...is it just a made up wives tale that raw eggs will harm you, or should we actually be giving up the other conveniences like ice cream & mayo?? Why would they be any different??
