Scrambled Egg Whites: Give Them a Chance!


Me being into egg whites is a very recent thing. I never thought much about cholesterol, and separating the yolks from the whites just seemed like unnecessary,extra work. I know I’m not the only one, because people who have never even had egg whites say they know they won’t like them. It really takes me back to my days of reading Dr. Seuss. Remember Green Eggs and Ham? I hope I’m not ruining the story for anyone, but in the end, the eggs and ham are delicious! The same can be said for my scrambled eggs whites. Trying something new is worth while, especially when there are immediate, healthy benefits. I combine spices in a unique way so that for just 51 calories, nearly 11g of protein are yielded with no cholesterol. The egg whites are great for an omelet, or a more creative scramble mixed with your favorite veggies. The possibilities are endless!

 Ingredients (per serving):

  • 3 egg whites
  • nonstick spray (or oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt free seasoning salute
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 crushed red pepper
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of milk
Separate egg whites and in a small bowl, whisk together spices. Use either nonstick spray or lightly oil the surface and place skillet on medium high. Once heated, add eggs and scramble. To prevent eggs from becoming too dry, remove from heat when about 80 to  90% firm and let them cook the rest of the way on their own.
