eggs yolks contain most of the vitamins that come from an egg...so instead of all egg whites add a yolk or 2 and get some of those vitamins! emoticon

    I just adore the Yolks but can't go beyond 3 yolks/Week---thanks to my heart condition---but will definitely follow your advice and eat them as often allowed!!!

    A friend of my mother's is doing nutritional research at the University of Connecticut- she says the egg is pretty much the perfect food, containing the right proportions of protein & good fat, and also that cholesterol from food has little impact on your ldl cholesterol levels. So 3 cheers to DannieRae!

    Also, the vitamins and biotin in the egg whites won't to utilised / taken up by the body without another component from the yolk. SO at least add 1 yolk to your egg whites.
