Quick Dinner: Egg Whites with Beans and Veggies

Last night we had dinner later than usual.  Time just got away from us between working out, a phone call with our tax guru, and trying to find all the documents he need.  Dinner definitely took a back seat, but turned out health, low calorie, and yummy! 

I grabbed stuff that I always have in the house for an occasion that needs something fast and easy, egg whites, a can of black beans, bread, and frozen steam in the back veggies. 

I have been buying Sara Lee, 45 calorie 100% whole wheat bread for about 1 year now, and I use black beans all the time (as you know if you read my post “I Heart Black Beans" post).  But the vegetable medley was a first time purchase for me.  I wasn’t sure I would like the flavoring because prepackaged things are usually too rich or creamy, but this was surprisingly light.  Not great for leftovers though, it became a bit soggy with a re-heat. 

Back to dinner...I rinsed and drained the can of black beans, then heated them on the stove.  I poured 2 cups of egg whites into a heated pan and start to scramble, adding a bit of black pepper as they cook.  The vegetable medley was the easiest just threw it in the microwave for 5 minutes.  When it was all ready I piled it on a plate with 2 pieces of plain toast and a ½ ounce of shredded cheddar jack.  

Diet Info:
Egg whites ¾ cup @ 90 calories
Black beans ½ cup @ 105 calories
Vegetables ½ cup @ 40 calories
Toast 2 slices @ 90 calories
Shredded cheddar jack ½ oz @ 55 calories

Total for my dinner was 380 calories.  Of course I followed that with some Easter Candy for dessert! 

Overall the meal was Super fast, hardly any clean up, and even had leftovers.  Enough egg whites were left over for Bond’s breakfast and enough beans and veggies to add to some left over rice for lunch today! 

What is your go to quick dinner?  What do you always keep in the house?



Looks like a great meal. I'm going to let my "Fat Club" friends know about your blog. Nice low-cal ideas. The fact that you always end with chocolate makes you so likable and relatable.
