Can you use egg whites only when cooking?

You can, and people often do this to cut cholesterol and fat from their diets. Egg whites alone still possess the coagulant properties associated with eggs, but they do lack the flavor, color, and richness found in the yolk. I would recommend using part whole eggs, part egg whites to find a compromise between the two.
