  • Use fresh, organic egg whites for the best flavor and health benefits.
  • Don’t overcook the egg whites to keep the omelette tender.
  • Add a variety of vegetables like bell peppers or tomatoes for more flavor and nutrition.


  • Can I use whole eggs instead of egg whites? Yes, though it will change the nutritional profile of the dish.
