Do you prefer your eggs with or without the yolk? It’s no secret that the yellow insides of the egg are flavorful and satisfying; however, some consumers prefer to skip the yolk and go for the egg whites instead. Because while eggs come with many health benefits, they’re also high in cholesterol. But if you stick to only egg whites, you avoid those extra grams of cholesterol, and are left with protein and nutrients instead.
According to Livestrong, a single egg white yields 6 grams of protein and no fat. Livestrong also notes that a single egg white offers provides you with plenty folate, selenium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. So, it is evident that egg whites can and should easily be incorporated into a healthy diet — the only question is: how? Not many consumers want to drink egg whites for breakfast, so we’re highlighting six egg white recipes that make your protein game just a little more interesting.
