So I'm ready to make some home made Mayo. I finally found a common store brand (I think it was Kraft) that used mostly olive oil, but still has bad stuff, including PUFA. But that's not what this post is about. In the process, I'm going to... (more)

Considering the egg whites are mostly water and a little bit of protein, and I only needed to use the white (for instance, a recipe) does it matter if it comes from a conventional egg? They are much cheaper, and they make slushies nice and foamy. (more)

put them in a blender with coconut oil, coconut milk, fruit, and walnuts and see what happens? It sounds like a good idea in theory. Edit: Sorry I forgot about the 'dessert' part..and replaced the veggies with fruit. Add sugar if you dare. (more)

Why do many people outside of the Paleosphere believe that egg yolks are bad? What are some good resources that defend the consumption of whole eggs? Thanks!

FWIW, I think egg safety is a reflection of where the eggs come from. It might be completely unfounded, but I feel a lot safer when eating free range eggs that came from the farm down road then battery eggs from a huge commercial operation.

I don't think there's any uniquely WAPF reasons to avoid egg white (such as avidin), it's just a matter of avoiding protein itself. The avidin is pretty quickly degraded through cooking. People on a hyperlipid/OD 80%+ fat diet might certainly... (more)

The egg white contains sulfur and the egg yolk contains iron and when an egg is cooked at a high temp, the two can combine to form ferrous sulfide, which is usually a green ring that shows up in the yolk in an over cooked hard boiled egg. Never... (more)

They are all in the yolk. The whites have no fat at all. But you might not need extra protein from added whites, unless you have a specific reasoning for it.
