Blenders

I'm sure many people do this already, but, for those who don't I cannot recommend this method highly enough:

I used to piss about in the morning whisking egg whites for an omlette and also making a bowl of porridge. This was not only time consuming, but would also leave me feeling bloated and would take longer than desired to digest.

Last week I bought a blender and now throw the whole lot in there; egg whites, milk, oats, honey and a few blueberries or raisins to create a shake that not only digests efficiently but slashes the amount of washing up and prep. time.

Fears about problems from raw egg white are unjustified; the chances of an egg cointaining salmonella are many thousands to one. The chances of being infected are even slimmer. If you're still worried, cartons of pasteurised are of course available. And no, I don't have shares in Morphy Richards.

    Which problems are you referring to? Because the last time I checked - the 'problems' were justified..

    Now how would blending up everything together have the food digest more efficiently?

    agreed they are justified, salmonella can be quite serious and could mess your bb diet/training up for a few days

    buy some liquid egg white if you want to drink egg

    or

    cook the mix as a ommllete

    imo

    I completely agree that a bout of food poisoning is unpleasant and detrimental to training, however what I was saying was that not eating raw e.w. because of salmonella is folly since the chances of a single chicken in the U.K. passing on salmonella to an egg is many thousands to one and the chances of you eating that egg are even slimmer. Having worked in the food/beverage/hospiality industry for many years I have concluded that raw egg white does not present a great enough risk to omit it from my diet, particulary since it is regularly used in things like souffles and cocktails with no adverse effects.

    In answer to your second question, perhaps the word 'efficiently' was a little innaccurate, but I should think more easily digested. Since chewing does not completely puree food, further breaking down processes are used in the stomach. By eliminating the need for these processes it could be concluded that the body has to do less in order to make the nutrients ready for absorbtion. However, since these processes, and chewing, require calories to be expended, and liquidised meals do not require such calorific usage, it can be said that digestion of a liquidised meal is more efficient (in the strict sense of the word. Sorry for sounding so cocky.

    Ah I see. So the only problem you had in mind was that of the food poisoning?
    I thought you were also including some of the other problems involved in the raw vs. cooked egg debate.

    A main issue in that debate relates to the logic you use to justify you claims here:

    You are partly correct.

    But basically, you will get more protein from a cooked egg white than a raw one. The bioavailability is much higher/better utilised when cooked than when raw.

    So maybe having them raw may be more 'convenient'.. it isn't necessarily the better choice if you're going for the amount of protein per egg.
