a few newbie questions

Hi all im really struggling too eat enough protein everyday but im getting there.

I cant pick up anything without reading the labels now lol.

Just found out theres a lot of protein in corned beef too so ive been makin loadsa butties cos i love it.

Anyway if i buy canned tuna in brine put it in a sive and wash away the stench is this ok also this is gonna sound stupid but what exactly is egg white is it a raw egg with out the yellow bit and if it is why not have the yellow bit.

Thankyou.

    Don't eat too much corned beef as it's full of saturated fat.

    You are right about the egg white ( although you should cook them ) and have the yellow bit as long as you don't have too many.

    Why not just buy tuna in spring water instead of washing tuna in brine?

    No real reason not to have the yellow (yolk) unless your diet already contains plenty of fats. Tuna, yeah, rinse the salt water, I run it under the cold tap for a minute then pour some boiling water over it.

    Corned beef [xx(] yuk!

    Yolk (yellow part) of Egg - 5g fat
    White(white part.. obviously) of Egg - 8g protein
    on average... try to stay away from the yolk if u care about ur fat intake

    not so bad in my area ( northwest )i can always buy tuna in springwater, on offer a few bit as well £3.99 for 6 large tins, i stock up on loads of the stuff
