Eggs. The perfect protein. My husband and fitness guru, Luke, says that you need the whole egg because every part of the egg works together in digestion. If you want to cut out some of that cholesterol by eating mostly egg whites, make your own twist on this omelet:
4-5 egg whites
1 egg yolk
2 Tbsp skim milk
Beat egg whites with the yolk and skim milk
1 plum tomato, chopped
1 small clove garlic, passed through a press
1 handful shredded spinach
1 Tb minced purple onion
Quick saute the vegetables – just till soft.
Pour eggs into a small frying pan coated with Eat-Clean cooking spray (spritzed olive oil). Cook till firm. Add vegetables on one half of omelet, then fold other half over top. Let sit for 30 seconds or so, then serve.
LUNCH! I put this in my whole wheat wrap for lunch – strong protein and veggies! I added a dash of garlic salt and cayenne in the eggs while beating.
