I'm trying to build muscle and get stronger by eating paleo. I'm 5'11 155lb so I'm rather scrawny but my max bench is excellent (240lb), my squat and deadlift numbers are embarrassing though. So I'm turning to the community for tips/advice especially in the realms concerning creatine and egg white protein shakes.

I really do not think egg whites are good at all. If I remember right Loren Cordain recommends limiting eggs to 6 a week for its whites and egg whites are excluded in autoimmune protocols. Hemp protein is probably the best protein powder option for better mood for its high tryptophan/(phenylalanine+leucine) ratio.

On days that you are doing heavy lifting, upping your carbs can help you see more gains. So an extra sweet potato or two post-workout might be a good option.
You might consider looking into these options:
