LOL...I know all about adjusting to those darn egg whites. I am back to eating them, but am pretty darn boring. Scrambled and add nutritional yeast to them, stuff them in a pita or wrap. Add cottage cheese, tofu, veggies, grilled onions and mushrooms to them sometimes. Occasionally mix some whites into orzo, quinoa, noodles, rice... Like LFF I eat some of that for breakfast. Have done that for a long time. Kind of like eating my meals backwards:)

Funny, but I prefer egg whites now. When I did eat hardboiled, before all of this, I would take off the white part. I know, nasty, but the only way I could eat the darn whites. Now I can't imagine eating a yolk. That plus the muscle cramps and a day in the bathroom with hives doesn't help. TMI but true.

Hey Mrs. K!
Remember its Egg WHITES. so by volume, its less than 5 eggs (and don't worry if you only are eating 3-4... I had to work up to 4-5 for a few weeks, finally making it in weeks 7-8 when I'd wake up STARVING)
anyhoo... here are the ways I make/use egg whites:

-breakfast sandwich/"mc"muffin style. Easiest way: stick a whole wheat english muffin or multigrain sandwich "slender" into toaster. spray a small round tupperware with non-stick spray, add egg whites and microwave for 1:30-1:45. put one side of 'bun' over cooked eggs, invert out of tupperware, add topped. Takes about two and a half minutes. You can add spices, chilis, fat-free cream cheese, cottage cheese, shredded cheese, or feta to the eggs if you want different flavor

-veggie & egg scrambles. I vary the type of veggies and the spices I use. I suck at omelettes, so mine always come out as scrambles. you can also add a little chicken or turkey or cheese or (my favorite) salsa to add variety.

-breakfast burritos. similar to above, using fajita veggies (green/red sweet peppers and onions) and salsa and a whole-wheat tortilla. again low-fat/fat-free cheese if you just can't stand them plain, but the salsa really should be enough. Avocado is also good.

-Fritatta or Mexican egg casserole. when I want to make a larger batch for guests or left-overs. There are several good fritatta recipes in SparkRecipes (salmon & cream cheese), but usually make them with a lot of veggies. Mexican egg casserole is my former MiLs recipe and seems heavy on the cheese but one serving is still only about 200 calories...

-fruit smoothies. Instead of using protein powder, I sometimes use pasteurized egg whites to make my fruit smoothies. less thick (using frozen fruit helps) but more 'clean'

-egg fried rice. lots of veggies(remove after cooking), half cooked egg whites, add a half cup of brown rice (refridgerated leftover rice works best), stir and re-add veggies, cook until done. yep, I even eat this at breakfast-- in fact, had it today!

That's what I got off the top of my head... anyone else??

I had such a hard time choking them down, myself. I ended up switching to cottage cheese so I would still have the protein. Although the diet was the hardest for me to follow! I am sure some of these other women have better ideas for you!
