Eggs

Updated: Jun 6, 2021

To replace eggs in your diet, there are two things you need to do

  1. Use actual Egg Replacer in dishes that require eggs.

Egg Replacer has made my baking life so much easier. I can eat normal dessert. It is possible for me to use store-bought dessert mixes! And no one can tell the difference between egg replacer and actual eggs in baking. All of my friends and family love my egg replacer brownies.


Egg Replacer is very simple. There are multiple different brands, with multiple different sizes, but this is how it generally works. Egg Replacer is a powder, and when you mix a certain amount of it with a certain amount of water, it equals an egg. All egg does in baking is make things rise, so you can use egg replacer to get that job done without using an egg. Here's an example:


My Egg Replacer brand: Ener-G Egg Replacer


For Ener-G Egg Replacer, if you mix 1 ½ tablespoons of the powder with 2 tablespoons of water, it equals one egg. So if a recipe asked for two eggs, you would mix 3 tablespoons of powder with 4 tablespoons of water. The only bad thing about egg replacer, is that it takes a while to mix. You have to mix until you get all those lumps out, which can take me several minutes. Do not worry though, every brand is different and it is absolutely worth the extra few minutes. My brand even has multiple recipes on the back of the box that you can make with egg replacer! Some of them may contain other allergens, but if eggs are the only thing you are allergic too, have fun with this box:)



Just a note: Egg Replacer should only be used in baking. Use it for brownies and cookies and cakes and other desserts. It's not going to do the same thing an egg does in an omelet.


2. Incorporate more protein in your diet.


When you have allergies, its easy to not realize what you're missing. If you're allergic to eggs, you're missing protein. There are some high-protein recipes on this website, like the Chia Seed Pudding and Chickpeas, but you should also try your best to use more than that.


To incorporate more protein in my diet, I eat meat, lentils, and have protein shakes. I'm not a vegetarian, and Indian food has lots of lentils. However, I understand that vegetarians need options and lentils aren't generally in non-ethnic food. I have a lentil recipe on this website that is suitable for anyone to try, but I get it. Lentils aren't that common. Also, I buy my protein shakes, and I understand that that's a big investment for a lot of people, and there are cheaper and easier ways to get protein in your diet. I hear you. Here's what you can eat:

  1. Use recipes on this website!

  2. Tofu

  3. Beans

  4. Oats

  5. Broccoli!!!!!

  6. Avocado

  7. High-Fiber cereals

  8. Edamame

  9. & more!

My protein shake brand: Evolve Protein Shake (it tastes like chocolate!)
