I had an over-abundance of eggs from our backyard chickens, so I decided to make some salt-cured egg yolks. I separated the yolk from the white, nestled each one in a container of kosher salt, covered it, and let it hang out in the fridge for a week. The result is an egg yolk that's had all the moisture removed from it, and what remains is a bright yellow-orange, hardened, grate-able, (dare I say it) cheese-like puck. When I've made them in the past, I've used them to grate over just about everything i cooked as a colorful garnish - soups, breakfast hashes, crock pot meals, you name it. I was wondering if this would technically be a compliant way to use them during the Whole30, or if this method treads too close to SWYPO territory for comfort. I'm on R4D19 currently and i haven't used them yet. Plus once they're cured, they last forever in the fridge, so if I can't use them for the next 11 days I think I'll survive. I was just genuinely curious. Thanks for any feedback!
Hi, I've looked in this forum and the can I have forum, but I can't seem to find anything about it. I looked up the eggs I bought (Happy Egg Co), Vital Farms, and the Costco ones, and they all have a soy diet fed to the chickens. Soy isn't compliant, but I know a lot of Whole30 people I follow on IG use those ones. Is it okay if they are fed soy? Will that effect my hormones? I also have PCOS so I don't eat soy anyway, but before the Whole30 I never paid attention really to what chickens were fed or how meat was raised. Am I being to uptight? Thanks!
Good morning, I'm not sure the best forum to put this on but since it deals with my meal plans I figured I'd start here. This is my first time on whole30 and generally I like it a lot. I find myself eating a lot of salmon, eggs, almonds and other items high in vitamin E and such. While I love removing all kinds of negative foods I am scared I'm eating too much certain things that can cause vitamin E toxicity as well as high cholesterol. I am predisposed to high cholesterol and because of all the eggs I'm eating I'm scared that it could rise. I've been eating eggs daily while on whole 30 cause my go to breakfast (yogurt) isn not allowed. That's a lot eggs. I've tried fruit but days I have fruit for breakfast I end up eating eggs later on. I normally don't eat a lot of red meat the occasional beef meat balls or maybe super rare piece of lamb but I find now that I need to eat more of it to diversify my meal plans. Anyways today is day 21 and outside a cough drop which seemed unavoidable because I couldn't catch my breath and had a bad cough. It's been a pretty good eating month. I would love any and all advice. Thank you. -Yelizaveta
