Easy Eggs

One day I will take beautiful food pictures-until then, I will thank God for flickr

These two recipes are actually based off a boring diet food that I transformed into breakfast deliciousness. I will usually eat one of these with Golean (duh), wheat toast, or oatmeal for breakfast.

Last year, one of my roommates was on a diet that required her to eat egg whites every morning. Since she was not allowed to add anything but pepper, the result tasted a bit like warm rubber… with pepper. Although taste was nonexistent, the nutritional stats were good: 1 serving of egg whites boasted 6g protein with only 30 calories! Also it only took a couple minutes to microwave, with minimal cleanup.

I decided to boost the taste and fiber through various add-ins and came up with the following combinations:

Spinach and Feta Eggs

Ingredients

1/3 cup liquid egg whites

1/4 cup frozen spinach

2 Tbsp of feta cheese

Microwave the frozen spinach for one minute in a cereal-size bowl or mug-at least 8 oz. Break up the clumps and add the eggs and feta (don’t worry if some of the spinach is still frozen). Microwave for another minute. Take out, and use a spoon to scrape the edges to the middle for more uniform cooking. Microwave for 45 more seconds. Enjoy!

Stats: 85 calories, 13.5g protein, 1.5g fiber, 3.3g fat (using sparkpeople recipe calculator)

Cheesy Salsa Eggs

1/3 cup of egg whites

1/4 cup cheddar cheese

2 tbsp salsa

Stats: 124 calories, 17g protein, 1g fiber, 6.2g fat

Mix the eggs and cheese together. Microwave for one minute. Take out the bowl and use a spoon to scrape the edges to the middle for more uniform cooking. Microwave for 45 more seconds. Top with salsa and dig in!
