I Made My Own Egg-Beaters!
 
After having been cruely tormented ;) by other Juddders with their descriptions of DD meals made with Eggbeaters....I attempted to buy some myself ...only to find there were no such thing in the UK!

The closest I could fine were large cartons of pasturised egg whites...these were really expensive...and had to be used within 3 days of opening...no way could I use 40 odd egg whites in 3 days! :sick:

On further online searching, I found some tubs of pure, powdered egg whites, called Just Eggs, on Amazon. While not cheap...they did contain 144 egg whites per tub!:jumpjoy:

They arrived early this morning, on my DD...so I had to use them right away!

So simple...i got a tupperware lidded tub...added one scoop of Just Eggs, 1/3 cup of water, and some seasonings...garlic powder, pepper and salt...and shook the tub like mad for a minute. Result...frothy, savoury egg whites...no artificial colours or flavourings!

Pam sprayed a dinner plate, poured the whites on, and microwaved till set...added my spinach and salsa filling...flipped it over...breakfast done! :jumpjoy:

I am delighted...the possibilites are endless...I can add virtually anything to the powder...hot spices, hot sauce, a sprinkle of parmesan and mustard powder, dried herbs...even cinnamon and sweetner for a fruit or jam omelette!

Have also made Ouizoids DD omm with the powder instead of the egg whites...and just added a bit more liquid to the mixture...perfect!

Will try scramble next!

I :heart: it when yoou find a food that makes DD's easier...first Gluc, then oat fiber...and now this!

Love the powdered egg white idea for you, Jo. And your microwave breakfast sounds so easy. I've never tried cooking eggs in a microwave oven, but I'll give it a try.

You are so-o-o-o getting into this JUDDD thing it is making me laugh! Glad you enjoy it, and that it's a pretty fun diet for you, and that you are here with us, helping us have fun with it too. :hugs: :laugh:
