Travels: What's the daily recommended number of egg yolks?



Number of egg yolks consumed in 1 day: at least 4 or 5 ...

I don't eat well when I travel except that day in Seville that I already blogged about. Basically I eat breakfast at the hostel, a lunch of a sandwich and fruit, and come back to the hostel for dinner of another sandwich or pasta or something equally of no nutritional value.

Sometimes I sample local sweets. In Lisbon I had pasteis de Belém, egg tart pastries made from a lot of egg yolks, from the bakery that supposedly has the best ones. They were delicious with a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Unfortunately during my two days in Lisbon, I decided that I would buy half a dozen eggs because my hostel had a very nice kitchen (for a hostel) and an omelette or hard-boiled egg would be a welcomed change. The day that I ate two pastéis de Belém, I had also eaten two eggs earlier in the day...

Gaston eats dozens of eggs every day. I think you're good. =)
