The Incredible (Un) Edible Egg White!

In my quest for sources of protein for breakfast, I have found nothing that tops the EGG!

One little egg packs 4-6 grams of protein. The problem is that yellow part in the middle which is where all the fat and cholesterol lie. So, I discard most of those little culprits (5 grams of fat and 58 calories) and make our morning eggs with almost all egg whites (with just one or two yolks thrown in to make them palatable).

I thought after 5 years, the fam would be used to the absence of the yellow in their eggs. Apparently not! I found this written on our kitchen wall the other day.

Mark was reading in Job that morning and came across this verse: Job 6:6 "Don’t people complain about unsalted food? Does anyone want the tasteless white of an egg?"

Yeah, he thought he was pretty funny.

I did too, actually!
