As someone who has nearly always been a healthy eater, I’ve gotten quite good at substituting ingredients in recipes to lighten them up. One small substitution with big benefits comes from using egg whites instead of whole eggs – you will save calories, cholesterol, and fat. And to save time, I like to use Egg Beaters 100% Egg Whites – same benefits without the egg cracking mess!
Just how much will you save? Take a look at this comparison of one serving of Egg Beaters 100% Egg Whites (3 tablespoons) versus one shell egg.
Egg Beaters 100% Egg Whites (1 serving)
1 Shell Egg
You’ll save 45 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 185 milligrams of cholesterol. Who wouldn’t want to save all that, right?
And the possibilities of what to make are endless, including these FatFighterTV healthy recipes:
Besides just making egg-based dishes, you can use egg whites instead of whole eggs when you cook and bake all kinds of things like French toast, desserts, and casseroles. Here’s how the substitution amounts work:
1/4 cup = 1 large egg
1/2 cup = 2 large eggs
1 cup = 4 large eggs
With the news I shared here about my high cholesterol, I will be making these substitutions more often.
