  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 large tomato
  • 6 egg whites
  • ½ tsp. salt substitute

  1. Chop pepper and tomato into small pieces. Using an electric mixer or whisk, beat egg whites until frothy.
  2. Set oven to broiler setting. Spray oven-safe skillet generously with cooking spray.
  3. Place skillet on stove over medium heat. Add chopped peppers and cook for about 3 minutes, just until they begin to soften. Pour whipped egg over the peppers and cook for about 1 minute, gently moving the eggs around until the bottom begins to set. Sprinkle chopped tomatoes over the egg whites.
