Eggs are good for your Eyes

Yesterday was a rough day.

It started out like any other day… I woke up, made some coffee, and got to work. I hit a groove, and two hours flew by in the blink of an eye…

I was interrupted by a familiar sound, the growling of my stomach. I decide to address this hunger and I heat up an egg muffin that I had made a couple days prior. Now to be clear, this is not an Egg McMuffin… it’s literally just an egg baked in a muffin tin with some other stuff mixed in. It’s good, healthy… I substitute egg whites in for some of the eggs… anyways.

I placed the muffin of egg into the microwave, and heat for 20 seconds. I hear sizzles from the microwave gently heating my muffin, and then the timer expires. I open the microwave door, and immediately, the egg muffin explodes, hurling hot egg projectiles into my face and eyes. FFS.

I’m in shock and pain. I run to the bathroom to wash my eyes out. They’re red, but from what I can tell, I’ve gotten all the egg remnants out of my eyeballs and there is no serious damage. I was lucky…

But what I didn’t know at the time is that apparently eggs can be very good for your eye health! So at least I’ve got that going for me.
