Today, I had the pleasure of making lunch for my husband and father-in-law.  In a last minute pinch it can be overwhelming  to come up with a new recipe or a yummy snack quickly.  Here’s one of my fave healthy tricks to make something delicious and nutritious:

Lunch/Brunch Egg white omelet… staring last night’s leftovers!

  • Use leftovers from a prior meal
  • Add 3-5 egg whites (per person served)
  • Add extra vegetables (some great options: spinach, broccoli, peas, mushrooms etc )
Note: the assumption is that your leftover meal is a balanced meal of lean protein, light starch and lots of veggies
Directions:
Spray a medium heated wok with olive oil non-stick cooking spring
Chop leftovers into nickel sized chunks
Add leftovers to wok
Add veggies to wok
Stir the mixture
Crack 3-5 eggs over the wok (to add some necessary vitamin D to your meal- keep one egg yolk!)
Stir the mixture to prevent sticking
Add seasonings to taste (pinch of salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, and basil all work well)
Reduce the heat and let the ingredients congeal
Enjoy your yummy “fresh” meal 🙂
