In case you aren't familiar, egg beaters are little cartons of real uncooked egg whites, not egg substitute. Some versions are pre-combined with vegetables. Since it is all egg white, the protein content is high and the calories are very low -- 30 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 6 grams of protein for a quarter of a cup (61 gram) serving. So, one serving is 0 weight watchers points, and 2 servings (which is enough to cook up a huge omelet) is 1 weight watchers point. I actually weigh the egg beater liquid on my food scale to calculate the exact calories.
On top of being protein friendly, egg beaters are also packed with vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin A, Iron, Folate, Riboflavin, and Vitamin B12.
I like using egg beaters instead of eggs in various recipes. They also cook up great with jalapeno jack fat free cheese, low fat sour cream, and promise light buttery spread (as well as your favorite vegetables -- mine are tomatoes, onions, and green onions) into a delicious omelet. I like eating an omelet with a low calorie english muffin on the weekend for a great low calorie breakfast.
So, curious what do you guys think? Love them or hate them? If you've never tried them, you can find them at your local grocery store, like Safeway.
