You CAN buy just whites in containers (should be by the cartons of eggs) but read the ingredients to make sure there is just egg whites in there. They are really good for protein at about 17 calories each and 3-4 grams of protein.

They are good scrambled or in an omelette with veggies, but if you mind the whiteish color, try adding one yolk in. Egg white and salsa omelettes are really low cal, high protein, and yummy!

You can also use them in baking in place of eggs- usually I think its 2 egg whites for 1 whole egg.

nori is right (2 to 1 ratio).

however, mind if i ask why not the yolk? if it's cholesterol related, that's often over hyped, unless it runs in your family.

whites have more protein that their yolk counterpart, so having the equivalent of all whites offers a higher protein alternative. use them where ever you would use whole eggs - unless the whole eggs are required in a recipe that needs a little fat.
