Do you think the Egg should be the Official PaleoHacks Mascot?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created June 16, 2011 at 3:12 PM

Every morning I sit down to breakfast and the first thing I think of is YOU. That's right, YOU. Because, despite our divisions, this is what unites us every morning of our lives. We're all eating egg for breakfast. Now you might get all "Mavericky" some mornings and have leftovers from last night's pot roast but, admit it, 9 times out of 10, you're having that damm egg for breakfast.

You have a love/hate relationship with the egg. You would like to see something else staring back at you in the morning. Yet, when it's not there, you feel lonely. Like everybody else on Paleohacks, you have asked the question, "What can I have for breakfast beside eggs?" But the egg is sort of like the Terminator: he'll be back.

So resolution: shall the egg be the official mascot of PaleoHacks?

I like eggs, but I don't eat them every day. Frankly, I like the elephant motif currently used but if we were going to change the mascot I'd vote for an ungulate--bison maybe?

I didn't downvote you: but giving 'the finger' is a bit harsh for the poor lil' biscuit, ain't it? And, more seriously, bacon isn't included (as in 'allowed') in everyone's version of Paleo, not in mine for example, so might not be the best mascot :)

goose egg on the egg. I love eggs, but they don't love me. Where do you find egg laying chickens that do not eat soy and other grains? I can eat tropical traditions soy-free eggs about once every week or so without issue, but their feed still contains other grains.

No way Jose!

  1. I don't eat eggs very often, because of tummy troubles after having more than a couple.
  2. I don't eat breakfast, ever.
  3. Eggs are not great stylistically as a mascot. They lack a personable nature, and are often white, which blends in with background colors on websites.

This would definitely be better than the apples that have inexplicably been adopted even by paleoish blogs that actually don't really think apples are that healthy (Mark's Daily Apple, Whole Health Source and Perfect Health Diet). That said I tend not to eat eggs, but then again, I rarely eat breakfast either...

Sounds good to me. I get a little bit of anxiety if I run out of eggs for breakfast. My daughter commented the other day, "I think I'm addicted to eggs, mom." She will eat them anytime of the day, about 4 at a time. We eat a lot of eggs. Such a perfect food and versatile.
