Everything has PUFA

"For a while, the vitamin A is very important, and the PUFA isn't crucial in the short term, so 2 or 3 eggs would be o.k., though in the longer run it's good to eat liver about twice a month, limiting the daily eggs to one or two." - Ray Peat (see http://peatarian.com/?qa=private-corresponding#22)
The overall intake of PUFA in your diet is likely more important than the absolute amount in eggs.

Why not just cut out the eggs entirely and eat a little more liver?
