ayurvedic notes
Egg whites are a great source of protein. The egg yolks are a hearty and nourishing tonic pacifying Vata but aggravating Kapha. Egg yolks are high in cholesterol. Egg yolks are heating, and mildly aggravating to Pitta. Some people are allergic to the yolks.

Egg drop soup is easiest to digest. Sunny-side eggs are medium. Hard boiled eggs are difficult to digest. To make egg drop soup, scramble the egg in a bowl, then pour slowly into a simmering pot of water, while stirring gently.

Eggs act as an emulsiifier (as in mayonnaise, preventing the separation of water and oil), a binder (as in meatloaf) or an aerator (as in angel food cake). To cook without eggs, use tapioca as a binder, whey protein for aeration, or soy lecithin as a emulsifier. 1/2 cup of applesauce can replace an egg in many recipes.

Why are whole eggs not recommended for Pitta? I always thought the yolks were very nutritious and health giving?
