Omelet with Summer Vegetables
Randy Mayor

Eggs and Egg Whites

Eggs have it all. They're one of the highest-quality protein sources around, because they contain all the necessary amino acid building blocks for healthy muscles. Have this omelet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with 100 percent whole-grain toast for a satisfying meal that provides about 25 grams of protein and about 15 percent of your daily fiber needs. If you’re watching your dietary cholesterol intakes, you can make this recipe with just egg whites or egg substitute and soy cheese in place of the smoked Gouda.
