scrambled eggs

I was browsing through Mojito Maven's past Weight Watchers posts and came across a great idea.  Three egg whites scrambled (I add water instead of milk) and dried herbs, I used basil and it turned out to be a great 1 point snack. I cook mine in the microwave in a glass bowl and it takes under two minutes. First I mix the eggs with a tablespoon or so of water and stir them with a fork like normal.  I put them in the microwave for 1 minute and stir them after then I do the same for 3o seconds.  You may not need another 30 seconds but I usually do, just make sure it is all cooked and there is no liquid left. I just stirred in the basil then and ate it!
I still really like my old way to make scrambled eggs for a full 4 point meal not just a snack. The only difference is that I add one full egg to the 3 whites before cooking.  I add a 1 point piece of American ww cheese after the eggs are finished cooking.  The cheese will melt from the heat of the eggs, by adding it last it doesn't disappear when you cook them. They will be more cheesy if you add it last. I guess you could also add the cheese to three egg whites as well!
Cheap and easy!


  1. I had 1 scrambled egg and 1 slice of ww american cheese on Arnold's sandwich thin this morning. For everything, it was 4 points. But, it was so good!!
