Simple question. I am crunched for time in the morning and I was wondering if I could seperate my eggs for my morning omlette, and refrigerate them the night before. Will this have any effect on them?

Of course you can. I take it you've never worked at a restaurant before?

egg beaters can get expensive if you eat them all the time. well at least more than if you bought a dozen eggs.

Yes you can. I am usually crunched for time in the mornings so I will just add a scoop of protein powder in a cup and fill it with water, stir, and drink. Easy first meal. I try to cook my eggs around lunch time if I feel like eggs that day.

You would be correct sir. I have been hit with food poisoning twice, so I am cautious with anything food now a days, I over cook the **** out of my chicken just to be sure I don't get hit again.


I have tried egg beaters. But like it has already been said, they get very expensive after a while. My omlletes usually consist of 9 egg whites so I go through eggs like nothing. So it would not be financially smart for me to buy that many cartons of egg beaters.

I tried that with protein before. When I woke up it was gooey as hell! I think I was using Isopure back then.

I wouldn't consider a scoop of whey in water a meal...

Because you can buy 7.5 dozen eggs for the price of one small bottle of it.

if it fits into your daily macros (fats), then go ahead. I usually have 1 yolk for every 3 eggs or so.

Why not? Whether it be liquid or solid, macros are macros in my book.

^ you need to try to slow down the absorbtion of whey when taking unless pre or post wo.

Because normally a scoop of whey is 100-110 cals. Not exactly a good breakfast or way to start the day. Now 2-3 scoops and some fish oil isn't bad as a "meal". I've done that when on the run. 2 scoops nitrean with 5-6 fishoil pills.

Macros, are macros. If it fits, then it's good. Crunched for time, what can you do? Either fix night before, wake up earlier (dreadful), or have liquid meal (mentioned earlier).

Um, eat a few nuts, pop a few fish oil pills, eat some dry oats.....do I need to go on?

Does Cod liver oil count?
