In this Lesson you will Learn

  1. How are eggs used in cooking?
  2. What is the different between white and brown eggs?
  3. How to freeze eggs

Eggs are often prepared as a main course or used for coating or binding purposes. There is essentially no difference between white eggs and brown eggs, except that they come from different types of hens.1

Always buy the freshest eggs you can find (check the sell by date) and store them in the refrigerator. You can even freeze eggs by pour beaten eggs into a freezer-safe container.2 You can also freeze egg whites and egg yolks separately. However, when freezing the yolks, you need to mix in 1 teaspoon of sugar or salt for every egg yolk before freezing (sugar or salt depending on whether you want to use them again in a sweet or savory dish).3

Eggs are also a source of high-quality protein. To learn more about different types of protein and how much protein you need, we recommend reading our eBook Lift, Eat, Repeat.
