Eggology Egg Whites Featured in Life & Style Weekly

Eggology liquid egg whites were mentioned in January 2009's Life & Style Weekly magazine. Our favorite celebrity trainer, Valerie Waters, put together a suggested recipe guide to help Life & Style readers drop 20 pounds in just four weeks! In the Friday breakfast section, Valerie suggests "Scramble 1/3 cup of Eggology liquid egg whites with asparagus, mushrooms and goat cheese. Add a piece of Ezekiel toast." Sounds great!

Eggology egg whites are always a smart choice. No cholesterol, no fat, organic, kosher, all natural with nothing added, the only egg whites safe to drink, and full of pure protein - a great way to start your day!

Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day: High Protein Peanut Butter Yogurt

We've been running great snack recipes for the upcoming Super Bowl this Sunday. The following recipe is one of my favorites and I highly suggest eating this the morning of the super bowl. It's protein-packed and flavorful and will fill your stomach so your snack food binging can be kept to a minimum! Note that this is made with non-fat Greek yogurt because it is packed with protein. 1 cup of Greek yogurt has 22 grams of protein in comparison to 6 ounces of regular yogurt that has 6 grams of protein.


1 cup plain-flavored Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 tablespoon Eggology egg whites
1/2 teaspoon (or more if desired) honey or agave nectar
Add in a few mini chocolate or carob chips (optional)


Place all ingredients in bowl, mix together until fluffy and creamy. Enjoy!

Super Model Iman Eats Egg Whites

Some super models may be genetically blessed with the ability to eat anything and still look fabulous while others may have to work a little (or a lot) at maintaining that willowy, thin, yet toned body that is demanded of them in this fast moving world fashion world. Super model Iman, who for the record is looking fabulous at 53, shared with a reporter her own diet which we are proud to say included "egg white omelets with feta cheese and spinach and whole wheat toast for breakfast, protein shakes as a snack and chicken or salmon for lunch" and for "Dinner I will have whatever I want".

Iman is on the right track for maintaining, or losing, weight. Some quick facts about egg whites:
  • Eating eggs for breakfast is an effective weight loss strategy. Because egg whites are such an excellent source of high-quality protein without the calories, consuming egg whites in the morning will give your body the fuel it needs to burn fat and calories while building muscle. Studies like those conducted at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that participants eating two eggs (or equivalent in egg whites) for breakfast lost 65% more weight and felt more energetic than those who had a bagel containing the same amount of calories.
  • Egg whites provide the only protein that is instantly absorbed by the body. Other high protein foods like meats and protein bars and drinks must be broken down by your body before the proteins can be absorbed. This prolonged process results in your body receiving about 1/3 of the protein when the breakdown process is completed. Eliminating this breakdown process makes egg whites a better source of 100% natural protein.

Simple, Low Fat Super Bowl Snacks!

Sunday, February 1st is a historic day! Ok, maybe not as big as Inauguration Day, but a big day for all football fans, especially Steelers and Cardinals Fans! Fans are counting down to Super Bowl XLIII (43 for those that are too lazy to figure out what all the letters mean!) is only 5 days away. Perhaps it's the game itself, or the half-time show or the commercials that you are looking forward to! Since my team didn't make it to this momentous day, I will be looking forward to the FOOD!

Over the next few days we'll be offering up some eggcellent Eggology ideas for Super Bowl Snacks featuring our very own products! Let's start off with a super simple one, one for those of you that can't even boil water. You can still pull this off with great success!

No-Cook Low Fat Deviled Eggs
Yield: 16 deviled eggs

4 packages Eggology All-Natural Hard Boiled Eggs, halved lengthwise
8 oz. non-fat plain yogurt

Walkin' and Talkin' Food!

You have to admire a man that, at 94, is still working out twice a day! Jack LaLanne is a legend in the fitness world! Haven't heard of him? Maybe you should take a look! The "Godfather of Fitness", as he is often referred to, is known for starting the first health club, developing the first models of basic health equipment tht is still found in health clubs today and inspiring people to "Get up, Work out, Feel Better" since 1951 through his tv show.

Oh yeah, and he also likes to swim! Have you ever swam from Fisherman's Wharf to Alcatraz, handcuffed? Jack did it three times! At 41, 60 and 65! Not to mention, the second time he was shackled and towed a 1,000 POUND boat! How about swimming the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge - while towing thousands of pounds of boats AND doing it UNDERWATER! And did I already say he was 61? I can barely hold my breath and get my own body across the pool twice, let alone pull boats, never take a breath and fight currants-I'm getting tired just thinking about it!

And at age 70, he pulled 70 boats with 70 people in them, while again being shackled and handcuffed for 1.5 miles from the Queen's Way Bridge in the Long Beach Harbor to the Queen Mary.

Mr. Lalanne recently spoke to the staff at Fullerton College and reiterated the need to teach kids about living a healthy life style. Want to know his secrets? He's more than happy to share with anyone who will listen!

  • He only eats at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. with no between-meal snacking.
  • "People should exercise a half hour, three times a week," LaLanne said. "And when you work out, don't take a rest."
  • Also, he changes his routine every 30 days to avoid monotony.
Be inspired by visiting Jack's website that lists all of his feats and accomplishments! I'm off to get a half hour of excercise in before I run to the store to stock up on healthy eats for my 7 pm meal! Of course I'll also buy some more Eggology for my 10 am breakfast tomorrow! If I can look even half as good as he does at 94, I'm IN!

"The food you eat today, is walking and talking tomorrow!"

Impress Your Guests! Sweet Additions!

If you're like me, you enjoy a great dinner out! As each course comes out of the kitchen, you look at the presentation and wonder "How did they make that look so good!". There are always special occasions when you prefer to entertain at home, but still want your guests to have that "how did they do that" look on their face when they see their food. An easy way to incorporate some pizazz into your cooking is to add simple, yet tasty garnishes to a few dishes.

One of the easiest courses to play with is dessert. You can add fun colors with fruits and sauces and make the mundane look amazing with a simple tuile, which literally means "tile" but in the culinary world it is basically a very thin cookie that you can shape any way you like before it hardens. They can have a lacy look, or be solid, but regardless of how you use them, they are always a wonderful addition to a plate! (Side note here, you can do savory tuiles as well, but we'll save that for another day!)

Wondering how you can achieve this masterful look? It's really simple! All you need is a plastic lid-(a coffee can lid works really well for this) or a pre-made template, a metal spatula and a non-stick baking mat (such as a silpat). Now you are ready to impress your guests!

Basic Tuiles

Total time: About 1 hour, plus at least 1 hour chilling time

Servings: Makes 24 (4 1/2 -inch) tuiles or 36 (3 1/4 -inch) tuiles or 72 (2 3/4 -inch) tuiles

If you are making tuiles with designs, set aside one-half cup of the basic tuile recipe and stir in 4 teaspoons good-quality unsweetened cocoa powder. Use the chocolate batter to decorate the basic tuiles.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon
powdered sugar
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup Eggology Egg Whites

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Set aside to cool while preparing the remaining ingredients.

Sift the powdered sugar and flour into a mixing bowl. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the dry ingredients and melted butter until incorporated. Beat in the egg whites, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl, just until the ingredients are combined.

Strain the batter through a fine-mesh strainer. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or overnight. Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator; let stand 5 to 10 minutes to temper.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Use a piece of flexible cutting mat or material of similar thickness such as a plastic coffee can lid to make a template. You can cut out circles or any shape you want!
Place the template on a Silpat-lined baking sheet. Spread a small amount of the dough until it evenly covers the template cut-out and doesn't come above the plastic-these are really thin!

If making tuiles with designs (such as stripes or polka dots), fill a pastry bag fitted with a straight round tip (small or medium, depending on how big you want your stripes or dots) with the chocolate batter. Pipe stripes or dots directly onto the tuile (leave the stencil in place and lift it after piping on the designs). To make a web pattern, pipe stripes onto the tuile and then gently drag the tip of a knife or a toothpick across the stripes to create the desired effect.

Bake three or four at a time so that you have time to handle them while still warm. Bake 6 to 7 minutes until lightly golden around the edges. Keep an eye on them over the last couple of minutes to make sure they don’t get too dark.

Remove the tuiles from the oven and begin molding them into the desired shape while they are hot from the oven. They’ll cool quickly, so shape them immediately. For classic tuiles, drape them onto a rolling pin until cool. To make cups, drape tuiles over a small inverted ramekin, bowl or glass. For pirouettes, roll them around the handle of a wooden spoon. For cones, shape them by hand. Once the tuiles have been shaped, let them cool on a wire rack. They should be eaten the same day they are baked.

For an easy filling, why don't you scoop up some yummy Cool Cravings! It's a great way to make a beautiful, delicious dessert!

Woo Hoo, Hugh Is That??

That is 40-year old Hugh Jackman, one of the hottest actors from Australia. Recently appearing in the epic film Australia, Hugh Jackman sat down with British online newspaper Metro to speak about horse-riding, Nicole Kidman, and the obvious - his incredible body, his exercise routine and diet plan.

After Hugh outlined his intense training, he acknowledged that it is "all about eating". Part of a healthy, low carb diet, he also says that he starts the day with egg whites and eats them "every three hours after that". Smart man!

Egg whites, especially those that are pure, fresh, kosher and organic, like those from Eggology, are a smarter choice for muscle development and weight loss. Read on for more amazing facts about egg whites:

  • Egg whites have no fat, no cholesterol, no trans fats, and no carbohydrates. It is a well-known fact that substituting egg whites for whole eggs will reduce the amount of fat and calories in your diet. Using egg whites in your daily cooking can also help lower your cholesterol. The cholesterol that is found in eggs resides in the yolk. One yolk contains about two-thirds of the recommended daily intake of 300 mg of cholesterol.
  • Studies have shown that egg whites are an excellent source of pure natural protein. The natural proteins found in egg whites are ideal to build the supply of amino acids to build muscle. The egg white contains close to 40 types of proteins and other essential nutrients including- potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and zinc. In fact, the protein found in egg whites, called albumen, is recognized as the singular standard food scientists still strive to duplicate in their food, drinks, and meal replacement bar creations.
  • Egg whites provide the only protein that is instantly absorbed by the body. Other high protein foods like meats and protein bars and drinks must be broken down by your body before the proteins can be absorbed. This prolonged process results in your body receiving about 1/3 of the protein when the breakdown process is completed. Eliminating this breakdown process makes egg whites a better source of 100% natural protein.
  • Eating eggs for breakfast is an effective weight loss strategy. Because egg whites are such an excellent source of high-quality protein without the calories, consuming egg whites in the morning will give your body the fuel it needs to burn fat and calories while building muscle. Studies like those conducted at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that participants eating two eggs for breakfast lost 65% more weight and felt more energetic than those who had a bagel containing the same amount of calories.

Egg Whites and Diabetes - A Great Friendship!

Everyone has heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if you are diabetic, this saying takes on a whole new meaning! Eating breakfast helps control your blood glucose levels during the day, not to mention provides you with plenty of energy for the day.

I know we've said it before, but Eggology Egg Whites are a great breakfast...either plain or scrambled with your favorite veggies and a little cheese. This is the perfect meal for those suffering from diabetes-how about a avocado and egg white breakfast sandwich? It meets your carbohydrates requirement and tastes great.

Not only is this great advice for a diabetic, but can be adopted by the whole family for a healthier way of eating!

Hey Skinny! Bodybuilding THEN and NOW

If you are like most fitness junkies, you are striving for a perfectly muscled and toned body. I am always amazed at the results one can achieve from working out and eating healthy. Even more amazing are those that take it to the highest level of muscle! I thought we could take a quick look at bodybuilding THEN and NOW!

THEN: One of the greats was Charles Atlas, not only did he have a great body, having achieved the title of "Most Perfectly Developed Man" at a contest in Madison Square Garden in 1922, but he had such a great sales ad! He believed in pitting one set of muscles against another. He didn't approve of gadgets. He believed you were less likely to hurt yourself or "overdo it" when only your own strength was involved. And a man after my own heart, he always ate his bread crusts! (Come on, anything having to do with bread is YUMMY!)

NOW: Of course our all time favorite bodybuilder is Ronnie Coleman. His training encompasses a combination of simple compound movements with mostly heavy free weights and some powerlifting; he also uses machines. Of course his diet includes Eggology Egg Whites which give him a great protein boost! If you want to improve your work-outs, I highly recommend attending one of Ronnie's work out weekends! What more could you ask for than to work out with 8 Time Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman.

As for me, I definitely DON'T look like either of these guys...but I'm happy with my healthy self! Happy work outs-hope everyone is sticking to those New Years Resolutions!

Techniques Every Cook Should Know!

I love to cook! I am constantly trying to improve my cooking skills and do all I can to learn more skills so that I can dominate in the kitchen! An article entitled " 10 Techniques Every Cook Should Know" caught my eye. Do I know all the techniques? Can I master them? I had to find out!

After reading through the article, I found that there is one skill that I am an expert in! FOLDING! (Eggs...not clothes!) This skill was number 4 out of the 10 skills discussed in the article-and since Egg Whites are my life-I pretty much have to know how to work with them.

As per Amanda's article, here are the ins and outs of folding:

"Folding is used in souffles, cake batters or any recipe that calls for combining two ingredients of different densities. Usually, whipped egg whites or whipped cream is incorporated into a heavier batter or custard to lighten the batter. In the case of egg whites, the air that has been incorporated into the whipped whites acts as leavening to help cakes or souffles rise.

With the heavier batter in a bowl, gently deposit about a quarter of the egg whites or whipped cream on top of the batter. Using a rubber spatula, gently reach down through the whites and batter to the bottom of the bowl and lift the some of the batter up along the edge of the bowl and over the whites in the center. It's all about the twist of the wrist.

With each folding motion, turn the bowl slightly. Continue this motion until there are no traces of egg white left. Starting with a quarter of the whites or cream will lighten the batter enough so that when you add the remaining egg whites or cream all at once, you can easily fold using the same technique.

Be careful to combine the two ingredients quickly but gently, so as not to deflate the air bubbles."

Awesome advice! Check out her other tips as well if YOU want to become an expert in the kitchen!
