I love eggs and could eat them at every meal. Every single meal, no joke.
However, my doctor told me to watch my cholesterol intake. Eggs don’t have a ton of cholesterol, but it’s enough when your doctor says to watch it.
Luckily, there are products like All Whites on the market. Found in a carton in the refrigerated section of Brookshire’s, All Whites is simply what it says: egg whites.
Three tablespoons, about the equivalent of one egg, is only 25 calories and zero cholesterol or fat.
Now, I use them for breakfast all the time!

1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
