Thanks to the warmer weather, many of us are trying to pack our overly voluminous backsides into skimpier clothes that fit, well, last year…or maybe two years ago. Here’s the good news: there are no added calories or sodium to spoil your party, bloat you with water weight, or make you feel hesitant about donning that suit at the beach or pool! The food in the picture is shown with a piece of whole grain sprouted toast.

To carb or not to carb? That’s up to you and your specific nutritional needs. There are only 100 calories and no fat in this recipe, so feel free to add a whole cage free egg or two if you need more fat. If your sodium is not being restricted for any reason and you are a diligent water guzzler, then I would suggest sprinkling a little pink salt on after cooking.

Fresh and dried herbs not only taste amazing, but this concoction is a little anti-inflammatory as well because it contains some turmeric. Your joints will thank you after taking a pounding at the gym! The egg whites in the picture look anything but white and turmeric is the reason, it turns everything yellow/orange.

Feel free to change up the herbs—if you don’t care for the flavor of one herb, simply replace it with one you do like. Some people dislike cilantro because of genetics, so if you‘ve never had it you may want to taste it before you add it to any of your cooking. Feel free to get creative with herbs here, because they don’t add calories and make an otherwise boring breakfast a heck of a lot more fun—even people on competition diet plans can have this! Why suffer if you don’t have to? Life is too short for boring food!

Ingredients:

  • 1-3 sprigs of parsley, or a tsp. parsley flakes
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 8 chives
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric
  • 3 sprigs of dill
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¾ cup egg whites (4 egg whites)
  • Nonstick spray

Directions:

Put the egg whites in a bowl and sprinkle in all the herbs that are dried. Take the fresh herbs and cut them into small pieces with food scissors over the bowl and then whip with a fork. Hit a pan with nonstick spray and cook on medium heat, chopping and flipping the egg with a spatula. When it’s no longer wet looking, it’s ready to enjoy!
