    Pre making eggs

    If you pre make your eggs for the week or even a couple days at a time. Will it be rubbery the next day or couple days? I'm starting a new job next week which has me getting up a lot earlier. I'm just trying to save some time in the morning if I can

    I've never done it. I don't think I would eat eggs that were cooked several days ago, other than boiled eggs.

    Should I just eat boiled eggs instead and take out the yolk? Also I've had boiled eggs with yolk taken out and filled with natty PB. I've only had 2-3 eggs like that at once though. I usually have 6-7 egg whites with two whole eggs in the morning. If I went the whole boiled egg with PB route. How many do you think I should have

    Why would you take out the yolk? It's where all the healthy stuff is. The egg white is not nearly as beneficial. But yes, boil eggs for extended use. As for peanut butter... with eggs? Yuk! lol. But sure is healthy! I eat over a dozen eggs a day with yolks. Don't waste good food.

    I was just under the impression that if you eat too much of the yolk, You will have high cholesterol.
    Hey don't knock it unless you try it! I thought the same when I first saw someone have it.

    ok dang it. I'll try it. But if I puke I'm coming after you! You're not eating 6 dozen a day. It wont be a concern. Even if it was, a little EFA's would combat that. You need the yolk.

    Then why does everyone eat egg whites rather than the whole egg? It deff taste better with the yolk. If you like PB and boiled eggs separate then I doubt you'd puke but if you do come. Bring some chicken, I'm starting to get hungry again!

    Because they don't understand, never researched or never been taught about how important the yolk is. Same reason everyone thinks they need a million grams of protein. Or that they have to eat within 30 minutes after working out or the 'window of opportunity' is gone.

    nope I've boiled eggs (18) and it was at least 2 weeks before I had eaten them all....and they taste the same...

    yolk has nutrients thatll be beneficial....it was thought that eatin eggs would raise ur cholesterol....but I recall seein something a few years back that said u could have 6-8 a day without affecting it

    I was talking about scrambling up like 3 doz and saving them for a few days. If had boiled eggs well over a week and still tasted fine. I was just worried that the scrambled eggs would get rubbery pretty fast if left in the fridge

    Unless you have pre-existing cholesterol issues or are on a severe caloric restriction there is no need to cut out the yolk. The yolk contains some of the protein and many more nutrients than the egg white such as vitamins A, D, E, riboflavin, thiamin, folate, choline, phosphorous, selenium, calcium and the efa's are in the yolk. Some ppl cut the yolk out due to a severe calorie restriction such as pre-contest diet but most ppl parrot off what's spread on the Internet about cholesterol. Dietary cholesterol does NOT equal serum cholesterol. When you eat more cholesterol in your diet your body produces less of it naturally, eat less cholesterol and your body produces more naturally. Cholesterol is not a valid reason to not eat the yolks unless again you have pre-existing conditions which necessitate lowering dietary cholesterol intake.

    A healthy person shouldn't worry about cholesterol in eggs, blood cholesterol isn't directly impacted by dietary cholesterol anyways. Lifestyle plays a bigger factor, ie being inactive, smoking,drinking, eating shit food.

    Eat dem eggs son!

    I would rather make them fresh only takes a minute or 2. I'll eat hard boiled 3 or 4 days after I make them but thats it. I imagine scrambled would be rubbery if you tried to re heat them yuk!

    Waste. You shouldn't throw away the most nutritious part of the egg. Would make more sense to eat less eggs and include something else to increase calories. 1 yolk is worth more than 1/2 a dozen egg whites.

    precooked scrambled eggs shouldnt be in the fridge for more than 3/4 days.
    reheating them is basically recooking them. if you dont mind them cold great, but other wise your better off just microwaving rather than reheating. unless you under cook them than reheat them- unsure how tasty THAT would be lol

    if your looking for just ways to have quick eggwhites-Attachment 140572 i crack 3 into a micro plate (1.00 for 2 at dollar store) and cook for 40 sec every morning - super fast easy and easy clean up. i got this egg white separator cheep on amazon makes things even faster.

    When I first signed up to this forums back in 07-08. (Was on off and on until i forgot my login info and created this one) Everyone was saying If you eat the yolk. Your cholesterol is going to go sky high and it seemed at the time that everyone was dead set against eating the yolk. I guess times have changed and its fine and better for you. Since I was under the wrong impression , in going to start eating more yolks

    ^ yep.

    Egg Yolk: Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Calcium, Folate, Omega 3, Selenium.

    Egg White: None of the above. (or negligible amount).

    I haven't looked at the rest of this thread in detail, but lately i've been buying cartons of 15 egg whites from my local supermarket. I've compared the price and it's 4pence more than buying a box of 15 free range eggs, so it's nothing.

    I'm sure I could buy cartons of egg whites online for even cheaper if I buy in bulk.

    If you dont want the hassle of breaking open eggs, beating them up, etc, then I might recommend this if you want something you can just pour straight into a shake or hot pan.

    This is an eggcellent thread.

    You can pre-cook scrambeld egg as long as you dont mind them cold, reheated tastes awful. I would only keep them a day or two however.

    And always cook your eggs! Cooked eggs are more nutritious than raw eggs. So those of you who like raw eggs because it's 'manly'... think again!

    One can always make Bacon, egg and such in a slow cooker. When I make that I usually make it for 7 days. Always tastes great cold, IMHO.

    Thanks

    Just crack the eggs and put the egg whites in a container...Raw eggs be treated like any other raw meat...

    So you crack 8 eggs which will MOSTLY LIKELY be exactly 1 cup of egg whites....So if you crack 24 eggs that gives you 3 cups of egg whites in a plastic container....

    Turn pan on high and in throw the egg whites in pan...Literally takes less then five minutes...All you got to do is your the egg whites into pan...Plus you can even season the egg whites in container...Then you literally have to do nothing...

    Just pour in pan...
