COOKING EGGSBrowse Recipes
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?
Why are they not good for Kapha?
IF a vata person, who struggle to digest meats, eat 4 or more egg whites a day, won't that help them increase their protein? Or should they stick to 1 whole egg per day as the serving size suggested on this page?
We would generally recommend Vata types use the whole egg - whites and yolk.
Generally eggs are considered too heavy for Kapha types.
