Before I went Paleo I would eat a lot of egg-white omelets (more protein/less fat). I have since started buying Omega-3 enriched eggs and usually eat 2 Jumbo or 3 large for breakfast.
I got to thinking - where is the Omega-3 concentrated? I figure if they were mostly in the yolk, I could add non-enriched (cheaper) egg whites to the mix for extra protein without paying $4/dozen for eggs.

They are all in the yolk. The whites have no fat at all. But you might not need extra protein from added whites, unless you have a specific reasoning for it.
