Use fresh eggs as much as possible. Using farm fresh, high quality eggs make all the difference in dishes. They will usually come out fluffier, creamier and thicker than generic, commercial variety.

Separate the yolk from the whites and you’ve got yourself a protein packed, low calorie, low fat and low cholesterol base ingredient. Protein helps the body build strong muscles and maintain muscle mass as you age and everything else lends to good heart-health.

  • 1/4 onion (sliced)
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped,
  • 1 roma tomato, chopped,

The addition of veggies greatly enhances the dish. It is easy-to-customize as well. Want it spicier? Substitute the jalapeño for a serrano pepper. If you don’t want it too spicy remove the seeds and veins to taper the heat. You can definitely substitute whatever toppings you have in your pantry. Add in meats, vegetables, cheeses that you want to clear from the fridge. Anything goes!
