    Oh no! Eggs are totally okay, my dear Islam is simple

    but onions and garlic are things you aren't supposed to eat before salat!

    I assume u read arabic?

    وقد نهى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم من أكل ثوماً أو بصلاً أن يقرب المسجد ، فروى البخاري ومسلم عن جابر بن عبد الله أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : من أكل ثوماً أو بصلاً فليعزلنا أو قال : فليعتزل مسجدنا وليقعد في بيته .

    وروى مسلم ( 564 ) أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : ( من أكل البصل والثوم والكراث فلا يقربن مسجدنا فإن الملائكة تتأذى مما يتأذى منه بنو آدم )

    Well I'm an iranian, so I'm supposed to know all this:

    Eggs (chicken eggs) are completely OK (halaal)... and there's a saying that the prophet Mohammad actually recommended the eating of onion and garlic, something about the nomads' mouths smelling so bad (from lack of personal hygiene) that eating onion would make'em smell better

    And besides, as far as I know none of the then-known foods are "not recommended" (makrooh) for smelling bad ! There are some foods that are makrooh or haraam (forbidden) for other reasons, though:

    - pig meat is haraam for containing possible parasites

    - crow meat is haraam because of religious meanings

    - cheese [as breakfast] is makrooh because of it's effect on brain's reaction time ( I know it sounds crazy... they weren't supposed to know that back then ! )

    - drinking water at night with your left hand and while standing is makrooh ( I swear to God I don't know why ! it might even be superstitious, not religious )

    ...and some others

    I found nothing in the Qur'an with respect to either eggs or onions.
