Egg Whites

cremebrulee | Mar 6, 200810:06 AM

Okay, so I just became a member of CHOW - I am so excited it's like when I first discovered myspace.:) But better because it's "for those who love to eat." I love to eat, but only new and exciting yummy things-Not just anything I can get my hands on. HELLO

Anyway, I just heard that along with red meat, pork and shellfish - egg yolks cause free redicals that can cause cancer. Not that I am so paranoid about getting cancer, I just like to keep a healthy diet as much as I can. So, after hearing this, I was thinking I need to cut some of the egg yolks out.

How the fricken frack do I do that? I make scambled or poached eggs for me and my hubby on weekends or crepes sometimes. My wonderful husband just got me a culinary torch so I have been on a creme brulee kick(which takes egg yolks only). Once in a while I have an egg salad sandwich. And many baking recipes take eggs. Blah.
So how can I still make and eat yummy things with just egg whites? or I guess no eggs at all? What are your favorite breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert recipes w/ egg whites or w/o eggs alltogether. Taking egg yolks out of eggs is like taking "f" out of fun.
Thanks!!! :)
