Plant-based Eggs: Future Egg Replacer?

HamptonCreekAs some of you may know, having a child with a severe food allergy can be a bit stressful more so when attending kid parties. Chasing after your little ones – ensuring they don’t take a bite out of their little neighbors cake or simply double checking all the ingredients found in their lunch and goodie bags.

A way to cut down on the stress is by baking egg-free cupcakes or a small egg-less cake the night before and taking it with us to the party. We could also buy vegan baked goods but my daughter is not too thrilled with the ones we’ve purchased in the past so — I’d rather make them myself.

Ever since our doctor confirmed our daughter had a food allergy (egg whites & egg yolks), I have become sort of obsessed with finding egg replacements. Although some do a decent job, they still fall short in terms of consistency. For this reason, I wanted to share with you all a product that just may be replacing eggs for good.

The product, Beyond Eggs, is a plant-based egg replacer for baked goods developed by Hampton Creek Food’s. They’ve also developed a plant-based mayonnaise.

According to Katie Fehrenbacher from Gigaom, “Beyond Eggs will be 19 percent cheaper than eggs, will last longer on the shelf than eggs, is safer to use than eggs, and is better for you than eggs. There’s also all of the feel-good aspects of the product: the poor environmental and inhumane conditions of the egg industry, and the reduced carbon emissions by decreasing the amount of feed (mostly corn and soy) that goes to chickens.”

Sounds like this product is healthier and better for the environment. Hard to pass up in my opinion. Plus, Bill Gates invested in this product – another plus!

Hampton Creek is now selling its plant-based egg products at Whole Foods in California. I will definitely be visiting our nearest Whole Foods grocery store soon and can not wait to tryout their products.

I predict future Beyond Eggs recipes up on TMO.

‘Till Next Time!

    I am heading to the market now to find this. I love mayo, and your right something that is much more healthier for you is a plus. This is great for my kids too. Thanks.

      Awesome! Just Mayo is currently sold in Whole Foods Markets. They are working on expanding to others though. Enjoy! 🙂

  • Having a spa day at home with this little love of mine before we get ready for dinner and bed time. Spa as in her putting on cucumber slices on her eyes and pretending to meditate while I also place cucumber slices but also massage in this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque. Because I'm almost 40 (eek!) and need all the help I can get from all the Southern California beach sun exposure.

I absolutely love the way this masque smells! So fresh and it has a light water gel texture to it. But the best part is the convenience factor for us busy moms. I just apply it right after I wash my face and sleep with it overnight. I wash it off in the morning and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, softer and brighter. You can find this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque @UltaBeauty I left you the direct link to purchase on their site via link in my bio.🤗 #IworkwithExuviance #Exuviance

This Neutrogena #Rainbath Ocean Mist shower gel smells divine and reminds me of my 20s when I lived in a tiny cottage in Manhattan Beach, CA. It's a fresh ocean scent all bottled up. Love the way it feels on my skin and it doesn't leave a heavy residue. And if you're a Costco member, you can get this large #NeutrogenaRainbath 40oz bottle @Costco in stores and online at http://bit.ly/NeutrogenaRainbath (link in my bio) #Neutrogena #ad @Neutrogena #Costco

What if I told you that you can now charge your phone AND save your camera phone photos at the same exact time?? This @SanDisk iXpand Base device charged my phone and backed up over 2,000 pictures and videos instantly!! .
.
Unlike the cloud, there are NO recurring monthly fees and you can have the peace of mind knowing that your photos are right by your bedside. But the best part of it all is that it's super fast! Much faster than backing up to a cloud over Wi-Fi. .
The SanDisk iXpand Base is now available at Amazon and perfect to add to your holiday wish list. Just sayin' 😉  #iXpandBase #BackupAndCharge

The truth is, this kid, although little compared to most of her classmates and teammates has such a huge personality, brains and never ending energy. .
.
She’s excelling in school by leaps and bounds. Experienced her 1st soccer championship game at age 6 and is getting a Sr yellow belt.  But don’t get me wrong, she has melt downs, she’s scared to be alone and puts up a good fight with clothes and shoes. Apparently everything is “itchy ivy.” Hence why these @skechers are on repeat even w/ dresses. Two Thumps up for being comfy and making her “faster”. 😆👟🏃‍♀️#ad @skechers #kidsstyle #toontown

Oh @joannagaines, just take all my money, k? Anyone else stock up on some Hearth & Hand at home when it came out last week? Absolutely had to buy this gorgeous table I saw displayed in one of their online @Target ads the second Hearth & Hand went live. Along with all these goodies. Our home entrance definitely needed a little TLC and I'm loving this mix of all my favorite things. It now feels cozy and welcoming. Are you a #joannagaines fan too? 😊🌿 #HearthandHand #fixerupper #bossmom #motheroverloadhome
  • When you have 💯 things to do but it’s a gorgeous day out & the kiddos keep asking over and over if we can go to the safari park. Mama absolutely gave in. 🤣
