two words: garbage disposal

it seems like a waste, but it's so much cheaper to buy regular eggs than liquid egg whites. also, having that metric of 'one egg white' helps with portion control.

Here are two suggestions I found...

EGG YOLK SHAMPOO:

Whisk a few egg yolks and apply them to your hair and scalp, combing through in order to achieve full coverage. Leave the yolks for a few minutes, then rinse out using cold water. This method gives hair a natural protein treatment, as well as helping to prevent dandruff due to the sulfur component of egg yolks. Even eating egg yolks is considered good for hair—if you're worried about cholesterol, feed the yolks to your dog or cat to give them a shiny coat.

EGG YOLK FACIAL MASQUE:

Egg yolks contain vitamin A, which is used in many skincare products designed to target acne. To use egg yolks as a masque, simply break up the yolks with a fork and spread over your face and neck. Leave to dry and then rinse off with cool water.

I would say make ice cream, most of my recipes call for egg yolks. Also, cream....so it doesn't really work unless you have someone you can give the ice cream to. Smile

I am dieting and my husband is not. I eat a TON of egg whites. When separating my eggs, I put the yolks in a tupperware container with a tightly fitting lid, and store in the fridge. I add them to whole eggs I make my Husband for breakfast. Occasionally I find that I have more yolks than I can use in a safe amount of time, so I have an ice cube tray specifically for them. I place one yolk in each chamber and freeze them into little yolk cubes. When frozen solid I will place them in an airtight freezer bag. If I make a recipe that calls for egg yolks, I let a few cubes thaw in a bowl in the fridge. I have also used excess yolks in garden compost, (there are a ton of nutrients in egg yolks that can make a garden very hardy). I even hard boil eggs and will use the whites as a topping for salads and save the hardened yolks to crumble with whole hard boiled eggs to make egg salad for the Hubby. There are a ton of uses, and I hate wasting food!

yep me too Very Happy

I'm a big believer in trying to eat the food we have the way nature intended it to be. However...

if you are going to only eat the egg whites, throw the yolks out (or give to your cat, or to the garden. if you don't want them in your body because you think they are not good for you, is it loving to give them to someone else to put into theirs?

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
