Healthy Egg Substitutes
For 1 whole egg, substitute 2 egg whites, which have less cholesterol than the yolks. You can also use 1/4 cup egg substitute.

  • Depending on the brand, egg product can have up to 50 percent less calories, less fat, and less cholesterol. However, keep in mind that egg product is higher in sodium and carbs than eggs.
