Healthy Breakfast: Scrambled Egg Whites

5

eggsDid you know that you can make scrambled eggs in the microwave? I've been making 'em this way for years and never thought twice about it until a friend of mine watched me do it and was truly fascinated...she had no idea scrambled eggs were so easy—and fast!—to make.

I know that lots of us are trying to recover from the holidays and looking for healthy breakfast ideas in the new year. Scrambled egg whites are a great way to get healthy protein without a lot of fat. Plus, they take about 3 minutes to microwave...so for everyone with their "I don't have time for breakfast" nonsense? I don't want to hear it!

When I'm being really good, I eat them with a slice of dry whole wheat toast and a piece of fruit. But every once in a while, I'll scramble them with a little low-fat shredded cheese and make an egg sandwich using ketchup and an English muffin. Yum!
