supplements are expensive. Am I better off just eating egg yolks than spending $$ on processed vitamins?

Absolutely you're better off eating egg yolks! They're one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! Supplements are really for more if you're allergic to an ingredient that contains a nutrient or if your diet is so low in calories you... (more)

I have taken to eating raw egg yolks on a nearly daily basis. I get more than enough protein from meat, so I don't need the whites. To separate them, I crack them in a bowl, use a spoon to scoop out the yolk, and then move the spoon back and forth... (more)

I use my hands to separate the yolks from the whites, making sure to pinch off any white that wont come off easily. Then I lay the yolks onto a paper towel and roll them around on it and eventually off into a container. The paper towel removes... (more)

Okay guys. I recently discovered I do indeed like eggs sunny-side-up. However, when I go to eat the yolk, it kinda goos (yes, goos) all over the plate and I feel like I'm wasting the precious liquid gold...So, how you eat your yolks? I'd rather... (more)

I generally add yolks to things like soups prepared with bone broth. Or, make a bowl of rice and while it is steaming hot stir in the yolks.

Yeah, it's the quality of what the chicken is eating, not their age. Free range chickens will make better eggs than anything you can buy in the store.

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!

Do you think it's safe to eat eggs over easy? My 2 year old loves 'dippy' eggs, but I'm concerned about salmonella. I've tried googling, but I find so much of the information is contradictory. Anyone know any reliable sources on the subject?

Placing the eggs in a 142-degree water bath for, say, 5 minutes is NOT the answer. Let me explain: the bacteria is killed at 142 (actually 135) degrees, BUT it takes longer than 5 minutes for that temperature to reach the inside of the egg to... (more)

Don't know about buying them, but they are pretty easy to make. If you can't find duck eggs, chicken eggs work too, they'll just be smaller and less intensely colorful. Separate the yolks(and find something else to do with the whites), bury them... (more)

Free-range eggs may be broader, and have more of an orange colour to their yolks due to the abundance of greens and insects in the diet of the birds. An orange yolk is, however, no guarantee that an egg was produced by a free-range hen. Feed... (more)
