Eat as many as you want.

Remember though. Yolks contain fat, but good fat at that, that makes a single egg around 70 or so calories. So take that into effect for your "fat" macro-nutrient.

Egg whites on the other hand are a lot lower in fat and calories.


Egg whites are sadness.


I ate 10 egg whites this morning with a wrap and sriracha sauce. I feel happy, my but my stomach will feel sad later (I have a love/hate relationship with sriracha)


Whatd you do with all the yolks??


I made these delicious cranberry orange breakfast bins a few weeks ago. The dough required a whole egg and 4 yolks.
I had to eat an egg white omelet and I was very sad.
The yolk is the delicious part


Threw em away, lol. I don't like egg yolk. For me, it leaves a nasty chalky taste that takes hours to go away.

I make sure to get my fat from olive oil / peanut butter though throughout the day, instead of egg yolk.


Blashpemy!!!

At least get the cartons of the whites


More expensive than just throwing the yolks away, which is really kinda crazy.

I can understand tossing the yolks if you really just don't like egg yolk. Just don't toss em because you think they're bad for you or something.

Eat eggs whatever way you like them best.

Why don't you just buy cartons of egg whites instead of wasting half of your eggs?


I do. I keep a box of 8 dozen whole eggs in my fridge and about 5 cartons of liquid egg whites at all times. I use them A LOT for protein shakes, pancakes, dinner ideas, etc.

Sorry for the long explanation, just thought it might help understand the process a little better.


Not at all - that was actually very helpful, thanks. I was one of those annoying children who could never be fobbed off with a non-comprehensive answer to any 'Why' question, so that was ideal.

Thank you all for the responses and ideas - very much appreciated. I shall wend my merry egg-eating way onwards without concern flowerforyou

P.S. Funny how tastebuds vary - I love yolks, but find the whites a bit plastic-y, a little bitter and very unappealing, on their own. With the yolk, and a bit of pepper and grated parmesan... just fine.
