Buying Egg Whites

Any of you that eat egg whites on a regular basis know the inconvenience of separating yolks, and the feeling you get whenever you throw yolks away.  I won’t eat yolks every day, despite their nutritional value, simply because of cholesterol intake.  But I think it’s very important to vary your protein sources to challenge your system in working for its nutrients.  My latest find is Real Egg, from Costco.  It comes in a case of 6 pints for about $9 and gives you egg whites ready to pour into your skillet.  This is a modern day convenience and one of the few packaged foods I eat.  They are very affordable since the equivalent in whole eggs is about $20.  The shelf life on eggs is great so don’t be afraid of not being able to use them before expiration.  If products like these can help you stay on a healthy diet, use them.  Today, I had a spinach scramble using the Real Egg product, roasted parsnips, and a slice of melon.  By the way, there are a lot of types of melons in season right now.  Try them all!
