Low Calorie Egg White Scramble With Spinach and Onions


Low Calorie Egg White Scramble With Spinach and Onions
What a satisfying and nutritious way to start the day! This scramble is quick and easy to prepare. Normally, a restaurant serving of egg scramble contains 3 regular eggs and full-fat feta, all cooked in butter. With skinny substitutions such as egg whites and fat-free feta cheese, scrambled with reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light, this 4 egg white scramble contains only 137 calories and 3 grams of fat. Serve with tomatoes and a slice of whole-wheat toast and this complete breakfast will still be under 300 calories!

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.
Spinach is a powerhouse of nutrition. It’s packed with iron, beta carotene and a good source of fiber. It contains vitamins A, C, and E and is a rich source of folic.

Shopping Tips

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.
Most supermarkets sell fat-free or light feta cheese. You can substitute with reduced-fat mozzarella cheese if desired.
