    Thank you for a very informative program on meals. I wanted to know if egg whites are OK for breakfast. When I have time, I make an omelet with shredded low-fat cheese and diced tomatoes. If I’m in a hurry, I usually have toast and coffee. Do you have any suggestions for me ?

    Greetings Althea,
    Thank you for continuing your support of Magical Medical Tour.
    I posed your inquiry to Tracy Harrison. This is her reply:

    Here’s my reply to the Q&A:
    “Good for you for making time for breakfast! I think an omelet is an excellent idea. I would encourage you to eat at least one whole egg. While almost all of the protein in an egg is in the white, almost all of the vital nutrition is in the yolk (e.g. zinc, iron, B6, B12, choline). And obviously your body needs both! I would also encourage you to experiment with a variety of vegetables over time; this will give you a wide array of phytonutrients. Tomatoes are great. Perhaps add some spinach and/or minced sweet pepper? On the days when you’re in a hurry, let me make a MUCH more nutritious suggestion than toast. Consider having a piece of fresh fruit (e.g. apple, pear, peach, cup of berries) and a big handful of nuts (about 1/3 cup e.g. almonds, walnuts). This combination is convenient, easy to take with you if-you-must, and much more balanced in protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Enjoy exploring what makes you feel the best!”

    Be well,

    Althea, I hope this helps
