All while finding recipes that are still quick and easy! Here are some recipes that I found on Pinterest recently and have been loving. Let me know how you like them if you try them out!

EGG WHITE OMELETTE

- 1 small jalepeno, thinly sliced and seeded (if desired), stem discarded
- 1/2 cup diced red onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- handful of grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
- salt and pepper
- 6 egg whites, whisked
- half an avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
- chopped fresh cilantro

Heat oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add jalapeno and onion and saute for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and tomato and continue sautéing for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then transfer the mixture to a separate plate. Return pan to the stove, and reduce heat to medium. Add the whisked egg whites and cook for 2-3 minutes until the eggs are set and the bottom of the egg is golden. Remove from heat. Add the onion mixture, diced avocado, cilantro and cotija cheese to the egg white, and fold over to form the omelet. Serve warm, garnished with extra cilantro and cheese if desired.
