Using egg whites to replace whole eggs in a recipe is a great way to cut fat and cholesterol. It will also increase the volume of food your kids get to eat.


  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1/4 cup fat-free cheese
  • 1/4 cup rinsed canned beans (such as pinto beans or black beans)
  • Salsa (to taste)


Spray vegetable cooking spray into a frying pan.
Scramble the egg whites in the pan and cook to the desired degree of doneness.
Place the cooked eggs on the tortillas.
Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs.
Place the beans over the cheese and eggs.
Roll each tortilla into a wrap.
Microwave for 30 seconds.
Spoon salsa on top.
I tried this recipe and it was great! I altered it a little bit.. Instead of using vegetable oil spray, I used Olive Oil spray.. Instead of using canned beans, I used dry beans because I was able to soften them to my standards.. The canned ones were just too hard for my liking, and when I tried to boil them it just didn’t taste the same… Other than that, this is a great recipe that is quick and tasty!
