  1. How do you eat them?

    Lately I've been wondering if I should cut down on the yolks...
  2. I usually do 3 whites + 1/2 egg yolk for my omelets.

    Interestingly, I just walked in the door from attending a seminar by an exerise physiologist/nutritionist and she suggested 2 eggs + 2 whites, which is more yolk than I typically use. Maybe because I grew up in a household that demonized egg yolks. LOL.

    I wonder how many times a week she would suggest having that, though. I'd be fine eating my version 7 days a week, as it's only 3.5 yolks a week. I would think that 14 yolks a week would be too much.
  3. I eat egg beaters ("fake eggs") or egg whites b/c of cholesterol issues.
  4. You know what I struggle with? The feeling of wasting food. Throwing away yolks. I know it's silly...
  5. You could save them to make something horrifically bad for you. I used to think I'd save them to make a creme brulee or something requiring a crap ton of yolks. Then I realized I'd never eat it.

    ETA: To get over that feeling, you could buy eggs AND egg beaters. Use the egg, add extra egg beaters for the whites.
  6. I usually eat the whole egg..and then will mix it up with egg substitute other times..just depends on what I'm making:smile:
  7. lol!!
  8. Do egg beaters taste OK? I've never tried them.
  9. Here's something interesting...I think it does work:

    Women on a low-calorie diet who ate an egg with toast and jelly each morning lost twice as many pounds as those who had a bagel breakfast with the same number of calories but no eggs, a study from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge reports.
  10. Depends on how the egg is cooked: hard boiled I tend to eat the whites only, sunny side up also whites only, but if scrambled I'll eat all of it.
  11. Wow
  12. I think the protein in the egg keeps you feeling fuller longer.
  13. I think they taste just like scrambled eggs. My bf is really picky when it comes to eat my "health" food and even he can't taste the difference.
  14. Thanks. I think I will pick some up this week and try them.
  15. ^ Yeah, dbf claims he doesn't like egg beaters but I just make them for him anyway and he can't tell the difference... sssshhhh:sneaky:
