Do they count for your daily egg allowance.

If my weekly intake of eggs is supposed to be 7 (one a day) and I bake Flaxseed bread with 4 eggs. Do I work out the proportion of egg in each slice of bread and add that to my daily egg intake?  or we ignore that and just count the bread in the carbohydrates and only count the eggs I eat as such (whole, poached, in fritters, towelettes ...)

I would've thought they'd count as your weekly allowance, just like anything else you "cook" & consume... otherwise you could cook & eat heaps of stuff and still be under your allowance Whereas you may in fact be way over it

I would count it.  Although, you have to figure out how many are you eating at the sitting.  For example, if there is 2 eggs in the recipe and you only ate 1/4 at a time, you're only eating half an egg.  That's how I would figure it out.  Or if you ate the whole thing, that'd be 2 eggs.  Makes sense to me.

Hey...I eat 4 egg whites everyday, plus one scoop of egg white protein in my smoothie. I'm training in the gym 6 days/wk, and this is the cleanest and best source of protein for me, plus its a "green" in my SWAMI.............so, that's at least 28 egg whites each week.........I haven't been concerned at all about this............should I be??

So, it looks like the consensus is that we count them into our daily allowance, and the same for everything else obviously.

Thanks everyone, I wanted to be sure.

I know when substituting egg whites for one egg you use two egg whites, so maybe next time you can make your bread you can use 8 egg whites instead of four eggs,  

This would still count as four egg, but your body would be getting no chloresterol and fat from those eggs, so maybe you can feel comfortable eating one or two on other days, and not worry too much about it.

Lola would the recipe work with egg whites?

those might work to keep everything sticking together....
also some form of pure like apple or pear, could be added as well.

Soy flour can also be used to substitute for an egg in most recipes -- 1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour + 1 tablespoon of water = 1 egg.
