    Everyone else: For your sake, and the sake of sanity, STOP eating only the egg whites. Egg whites contain none of the vitamins and everything else that makes eggs ****ing awesome. Egg whites block biotin absorption.

    Egg yolks are ****ing magic, they contain GOOD cholesterol, tons of healthy vitamins and nutrients, awesome for your fats. A calorie is not a calorie, whenever you are starving your body by feeding it things that contain no nutrients. Egg yolks contain enough biotin to offset the absorption blocking aspects of the egg whites. Never eat the white without the yolk. On the other hand, eat yolks by themself all day long.

    The cholesterol in the yolk can become oxidized and damage from over cooking, so don't over cook, or even cook your yolk at all. SOME of the biotin blocking effects from the whites are negated when cooked, so one thing I will do is separate them, cook the white and drink the raw yolks.

    Dietary cholesterol effecting blood cholesterol is bull****, the only time you have to worry about it is if you are consuming large amounts of damaged oxidized cholesterol. Your body makes way more cholesterol than you can eat - even with tons of egg yolks - and if you have high levels of blood cholesterol it's most likely from inflammation damage your body is trying to fix, and not from something you're eating.

    A babies brain develops almost entirely on cholesterol, breast milk is extremely high in cholesterol. High healthy fat and cholesterol is magic, stop throwing it away.

    I eat between 8 to 12 whole eggs a day, either raw or whites cooked and yolks raw. I would never consider NOT eating the yolks.
    Wow your a real eggspert!!!!

    HA HA HA Ha Ha Ha ha ha ha..... hum .... So boobs are cool right.

    Just kidding, in the winter I eat all my egg yolks, but I'm cutting right now and it's a easy way to cut calories. If I try going low carb I'm basically useless on anything lower then 200g so cutting calories that way isn't an option.

    I get people who freak out on me all the time when I say I eat 12 whole eggs a day.

    You will feel fuller and more satisfied by eating the yolks due to the high fat content, than by eating the fast absorbing protein of the white. If you want to cut calories throw out the whites and eat the yolks. IMHO.

    Or eat less eggs...

    Isn't this the most wonderful title?One of Scotland's national treasures. It is somewhere between a fish soup and a stew. Called 'Skink' locally. Whatever, it is a meal in a bowl and a very good one too. I could push the boat out and tell you you need Finnan Haddies to make it but I wouldn't be so cruel. Any smoked white fish will do. I used a mix of white and smoked cod. You do need the smoked fish to give the special flavour though. It is a perfect winter warmer or a good dish on a wet summer day here. Keep left over mashed potato to make this. It's a good use up.



    Serves 4

    Ingredients.

    750 mls / 1.6 pints full fat milk or a mix of milk and cream if you are feeling decadent
    A small handful of chopped parsley (reserving the stalks)
    1 bay leaf
    12 black peppercorns
    450 gms /1lb Smoked haddock fillets or any firm white smoked fish or a mix of smoked and plain fish. Whatever you have or whatever you fancy.
    5ogms/ 2oz butter
    1 medium onion chopped
    2 scallions finely chopped
    200gms/8 oz buttered mashed potato
    Salt and Pepper

    Garnish

    Chopped parsley and four poached eggs.

    Method

    Pour the milk into a saucepan large enough to accommodate the fish.
    Add in the bay leaf, peppercorns, parsley stalks and fish.
    Bring to the boil and simmer for five minutes.
    Remove from the heat and allow to infuse for five minutes or more.

    Remove the fish, strain the poaching liquid and reserve.
    Flake the poached fish removing any skin and bones.

    While the fish is poaching heat the butter in another saucepan and fry the onion until soft but not brown.

    Then stir in the strained poaching liquid, then the mashed potatoes until you have a thick creamy consistency.

    Add the chopped parsley leaves, chopped scallions and the flaked fish and simmer for another 4-5 minutes
    Season well with black pepper and salt if needed.
    Pour into serving bowls and garnish with chopped parsley and a poached egg.

    Poached Eggs

    You can of course poach the eggs in a saucepan of boiling water. A short cut is to put boiling water and a little vinegar into a microwavable dish. Make sure the water is enough to cover the eggs well. Microwave for a minute to make sure the water is good and hot. Swirl the water and drop in the egg and microwave for 30-40 seconds per egg. They will not cook a great deal after removal but will keep hot.
    subb'd for this recipe - reminds me of a fish soup I had in Scandinavia -


    Eggs: staple food. my wife gets farm eggs at here work - I eat at least 4 hard boiled eggs per day. Scrambled/poached/omlette/etc on the weekends.... E

    Is it worth the money to buy omega 3 eggs? IMO just eat more fish oil. Thoughts?

    I think that's more bandaid than solution. I would go ahead and buy the omega-3 eggs. Organic doesn't seem to matter. You'll get better prices buying locally or directly from a farm than you will from a store, unless you have something like a Costco's or Sam's Club that happens to stock them (mine does, and I get them at 3.60 for 18).

    Personally I would advise against Omega 3 eggs. The chickens are fed a diet high in flax seeds which are often times contaminated with high levels of mycotoxins and the fats are oxidized. Generally things like that are used as animal feed is because it's not fit for human consumption.

    From an article i found: "Additionally, I would STRONGLY encourage you to AVOID ALL omega-3 eggs, as they are actually LESS healthy for you. Typically, the animals are fed poor-quality sources of omega-3 fats that are already oxidized. Also, omega-3 eggs do not last anywhere near as long as non-omega-3 eggs. Remember, omega- 3 eggs are highly perishable and should be avoided."

    The salmonella scare also comes from CAFO operations which is disgusting way to cage animals - the chickens die and are often left for days a time rotting with other chickens around. Rats transmit salmonella into the feed which the chickens eat and can potentially pass it into the egg. The other possibility of getting salmonella is from the shell itself. (this is only a concern when eating raw eggs).

    Getting high quality eggs that are produced from farms that aren't disgusting is the most healthy way to eat eggs, and the safest.

    When I buy eggs in the store I get the free range / cage free / certified humane organic eggs. I think they are around $4.50 per dozen instead of the ~$2.70. You may have to look around some. The certified organic means the chickens are not fed GMO feed containing pesticides.

    When I don't get them from a store I get them from a friend with 25 chickens that lets them roam around all day in the sun eating bugs and everything else chickens were meant to eat, the yolks from his eggs are noticeably more orange from the additional nutrients the chickens can get.

    I've digressed... Don't buy Omega 3 eggs.

    I usually do 2 whole eggs scrambled with spinach, onions, green and red peppers, Italian sausage, and pepper jack cheese. I add a little tobasco as well once its cooked. Sometimes I'll use the same ingredients and make an omelet

    Right now I eat around 10 to 12 a day
    My record is 36 in one day.
    I normally scramble 3 whole eggs and 9 egg white. Hit them with some sea salt, pepper and franks hot sauce. Sometimes top with fat free cheese.
