Scientists. Strongmen. Lend me your ears.

As is, right now, I'm having only 2 yolks with my dozen egg whites, for caloric purposes.

I feel like I'm wasting all of those yolks though Unhappy

Is freezing egg yolks safe? If I freeze the ones i just used, then keep topping up with more yolks on top to freeze?

why not just buy bottles of egg whites and add 2 whole eggs to it when you cook them?

will save wasting yolks

Cost is the only reason, or else I would follow that advice.
I get my eggs for very little, free range (6pence, large). Even the cheapest egg whites I've seen in bulk are more expensive that that. Unless there is a super duper cheap egg white code somewhere Grin

Get your missus to ask if her friends want them. Alternatively, make custard! Although thus means you're consuming the very yolks you don't want to consume, but you're going to anyway; why else would you be freezing them?

You can freeze them. I used to do it then give the yolks to my mum to make cakes when Id collected 30 yokes.

Already got the majority of my fats and calories worked out and need to up my proteins.
I'm trying a bit more vegetarianism, but not veganism.
Only boxing right now and those extra fat calories aren't needed but once I make (lower) weight and change my training around, I might cycle back in to ketosis. All of the yolks then, will literally be gold. Assuming they keep, of course...

And if not.., well then, she can have a bowl of custard.

What does collecting yokes have to do with giving your mum yolks?

I just wonder what the egg white manufacturers do with those yolks. Pretty sure they don't have magic chickens which lay yolk-free eggs. Hopefully they're partnered with custard companies or something.

Mayonnaise companies more likely

This is a bloody good point.
And with the increasing popularity of commercial egg whites, I guess Devonshire will be making a killing on getting low price yolks.

So anyway. I'll start trying to freeze them from tomorrow morning.

This.

Schwarzenegger ate yolks during contest prep. If he can do it, so can you.

You'll be fine.
