I work out first thing in the morning and I'm planning on having sweet potatoes and egg whites with some spinach for a post workout meal as described in the success guide. When you make egg whites, what do you guys do with your yolks?

Thanks!

I think separating yolks and whites is too much work. I would eat chicken breast as my protein and save the whole eggs for later.

You can make mayonnaise with yolks and I would guess that you could scramble them. There is a lot of good nutrition in the yolks, so you don't want to throw them away.

Do you know the forum rules? Review them at http://forum.whole9l.../6-forum-rules/

 

I think the value of doing a Whole30 is to begin seeing meat, fish, eggs, veggies, and fruit as the good stuff and to start thinking of everything else as stuff we have to make do with occasionally.

I'd just eat the whole egg and be done with it!

I would just eat the whole egg, anyone care to share why this would be bad after work out?

If you have a dog, they love egg yolk's and its great for them, their coat's get very shiny :)

Cysgr8, the idea is to avoid fat post workout because you want quick absorption of carbohydrates (which fat delays/hampers).

OP, I agree with Tom...separating eggs is such a pain for me, I'd just go with a hunk of chicken instead. But making mayo's what immediately comes to mind

If they're quality eggs and for some reason I don't need the yolks they get mixed into cat food for a treat for my furry kids.

For me I just eat the whole egg but I'm working out hard enough right now to warrant a Pre or Post workout meal so my opinion is probably not relevant to your situation... When not doing a W30 those yolks would do nicely in a coconut milk ice cream though! :)

it's not a BAD idea, it's just not ideal. get comfortable with the basics THEN start worrying about the tweaks
