Easy New Year’s Resolutions: Make Breakfast No Yolk!
Eggs are a terrific source of lean protein, but if you’re trying to cut the cholesterol in your diet, you might want to go yolk-free — each yolk contains an eye-popping 186 grams of cholesterol. In contrast, egg whites have zero cholesterol, only .06 grams of fat, and a mere 17 calories.
We won’t lie—egg whites alone don’t have the full flavor of a whole egg. So if you scramble the whites solo, add some chopped herbs, tomatoes, spinach or a scattering of Parmesan cheese. Or simply use one whole egg and one egg white for a reduced-cholesterol egg fix.
New Year’s resolutions you can keep! Every day in January, we’re bringing you healthy (often surprising) tips that are easy to incorporate into your regular diet.
