Lite Salami and Egg White Scramble

salami and eggs
Eggs scrambled with ham are pretty common but have you ever tried egg whites scrambled with lite salami? I’ve loved this combo for years and hope you will too. It’s low in calories and carbs, yet packed with protein. Be sure to check out the shopping tips below, to see what kind of reduced-fat salami to buy. The skinny for each yummy serving, 145 calories, 4 grams of fat, and 1 Blue WW  Freestyle SmartPoints, and 2 Green. This is a very generous serving since each contains 4 egg whites!

Healthy Benefits

Egg whites have fewer calories, fat and contain no cholesterol compared to the yolk. Egg whites are high in protein, contain potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron. They’re a good source of riboflavin and selenium along with essential vitamins such as folate, B12 and niacin.


Shopping Tips

I used Columbus Lite Italian Dry Salami. I bought it at Von’s/Safeway in the deli section of the supermarket. There are other brands available in the luncheon meat section of the market. Another to try, Hebrew National lean beef salami. **These slices are much larger so you only need to use 4 slices. Cut into chunks. The calories and fat are the same if using 4 slices.

You can buy a container of  “All Whites” in the egg section of the supermarket. One large egg white is equal to ⅛ cup. Or, simply separate the eggs and toss the yolks.


Serving Tips

This breakfast is pretty hardy the way it is. Jazz it up by serving with a toasted bagel thin spread with a little reduced-fat butter and jam.
