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.

  • A child can teach an adult three things 1️⃣ To be happy for no reason. 2️⃣ To always be busy with something. 3️⃣ And to know how to demand with all their might that which they desire. — Paulo Coelho 😆 Isn’t that the truth? When was the last time you were happy for no reason? Or even looked at something differently than you normally would? #foodforthought #disneyfamilia

You guys, today is our last day of “holiday vacation.” We had such a fun time creating family memories but now it’s time for Mia to go back to school — aka back to the routine. 🤪So today, I’m focusing on getting organized & making our crazy mornings less stressful. Send me all your tips please. ☺️😘 And a big thank to @verizon for always giving us the best connection to share our family memories with you. ☺️😘 #brandpartner #bettermatters #sundayvibes #sundayfunday #makingmemoriestogether
  • Making memories and breaking records over here. @disneyland 🏰 twice in one week.😂😅 Bummed the castle is blocked off so a pic with the astro orbiter will do. .
.
And my oldest no longer wants to match and she picked out this entire outfit. I have to admit though, I’m loving her style and taking notes. 📝 😊🤩 What are you guys up to this weekend? #disneyfamilia #makingmemories
  • #sponsored What if I told you that you can go shopping at Sam's Club, scan items with your smart phone as you put them into your basket and then push "Check out" and "Pay" right then and there?  Say bye-bye to the check out line with the Sam's Club Scan & Go App. I can't even tell you how genius this is and so needed for us mamas that always on-the-go with kids in tow. . .

Plus, we're currently loving all the fresh & organic produce. We made this quick healthy quinoa berry salad w/ homemade Cara Cara orange dressing using the items we grabbed in our last Scan & Go run. .

Ingredients: Organic Quinoa, Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberries, Strawberries, Baby Spinach, Cara Cara Oranges, Raw Unfiltered Honey, Salt/Pepper, Organic Member's Mark EVO. *Pricing may vary by location @samsclub #momlife #samsclub
