She may have been referring to the aromas that may generate from that many eggs tomorrow.......

5 a day is nothing to worry over.

I love eggs too, and if there's a limit, I haven't hit it yet. Am about to tie into a plateful of deviled eggs . . . that's if my everlovin' left any from having them for breakfast.

If you eat so many that you don't want to see another egg, that's too many. Otherwise, no limit - a nearly perfect food. They do need a little help on the fat/protein balance, so you might want to discard some of the whites or just make sure you cook them in some nice coconut oil or tallow.
