Today we are super PUMPED to feature a recipe from one of the fab Chicks from our April Fitness & Nutrition Expert Program - the fierce Danielle!
Danielle is a busy mom of 3, a runner & tabata lover and an overall postive, health loving rockstar. She started the program in April 2015 and as the Fitness and Nutrition Expert Program is taught online, she was able to work it into her schedule and at her own pace.
Danielle is now spreading the her awesome fitness and nutrition knowledge to her community and we could not be more proud (see under her recipe for a little about her FNE experience!).
Now enough if us…Danielle, take it away!!
SPECIAL GUEST POST: Egg White Veggie & Feta Smash by Danielle H
I love breakfast. It is my favourite meal of the day.
I think it is because I haven’t eaten in 10 hours so I am always looking forward to something delicious when I wake up that will keep me full for my busy mornings.
I have 3 kids so time is of the essence. When I need something fast, delicious and nutritious – this is my go to meal. This also makes a great brunch meal when guests are over on the weekends.
This egg white smash is not only satisfying but high in protein, vegetarian, low in calories and gluten free. The ease of the recipe allows me to throw in any veggies I have sitting in the crisper and provides a quick and easy meal. Sometimes I’m not even hungry for lunch!
From a visual standpoint this recipe make a lot of food so it’s also a mental win without all of the guilt of a usual large portion meal.
The versatility of this meal also makes it a great lunch or dinner idea too! As a bonus, it also tastes great re-heated.
Make a couple batches and eat snack sizes when you’re lookingfor a quick bite or post workout meal.
Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do. Bon Appetite! Danielle H. xo

- Mrs. Dash herb and garlic, as much as you’d like
- pepper, as much as you’d like
- Pour egg whites in a bowl and add pepper and Mrs. Dash. Whisk well. Set aside.
- Heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat until liquid. Turn the heat down to medium and add onions, green bell peppers, broccoli, mushrooms and minced garlic. Sauté until golden brown.

Here are some alternatives or subs if needed:
- Change veggies up to ones you prefer. Zucchini, asparagus and red peppers are some of my favourites that add delicious flavor and crunch. Also fresh herbs such as parsley and basil give it a great flavor.
- If you are avoiding dairy you can leave out the feta.
- Feel like you want to kick it up a notch – add your favourite hot sauce.
- Don’t want as much protein – sub 1 whole egg and ½ cup of egg whites to mixture.
- Not a fan of Coconut oil, sub 1 tsp. of butter. This can also be made into an omelet as oppose to a scramble mixture.
