Egg White Omelets

Low Fat Doesn't Have to Be Low Flavor

A friend who follows a high protein diet recently asked me how to add some variety (but no fat or carbs) to the egg white omelet she makes every day for breakfast.

Ingredients

2 or 3 egg whites
Olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground pepper

Add-Ins:

Some of these should be combined with the raw egg before its cooked.  Some should be added after the egg has cooked a bit.  And others should be added at the end, when the omelet is completely cooked.

Tip:  If you use egg white-only products (about $5 for 16 oz.), instead buy a dozen jumbo organic eggs and just separate and discard the yolks and you'll get the same amount of egg white for about $3.50.  Besides saving money, you'll also know how fresh that egg is and how long the white's been out of nature's perfect package -- the eggshell -- not sitting in a plastic container.

Tip:  Instead of buying an aerosol olive oil, buy an oil mister and fill it with your own good quality olive.  If you don't think it's worth the trouble, next time you buy a can of Pam, read the ingredients:  one of them is "Propellant."
