There's never any water left with the veggies. Just perfectly cooked and moist. Everybody's got their own style for sure. I love the moistness. I also let the eggs cook almost 'till done and then put the veggies in. In just a few seconds it's all done. But then, I've never made scrambled eggs with just whites or even whites plus (maybe ) a whole egg like so many sparkers seem to do. Can't imagine it would be very tasty. I believe in leaving the egg whole...except for that occasional meringue or angel food cake. But then with those, whose counting calories?? Egg yolk has VERY important nutrients that need to be balanced with what is in the whites. Just my opinion. You guys keep doing it your way.

When people get to be up there in age like me they often will put more emphasis on health in general than weight loss. Sadly, it means eating even less if we want to stay trim. Boo hoo, whine, whine.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Ani, for this recipe you would only need to "stir fry" the veggies for a couple of minutes. She would then be adding her ground turkey which would then give them a little more time to cook, and then the eggs. I don't think I would want water in my scrambled eggs but I know the method you described and it is a method I use also. Just not in this recipe.

Oh, okay; I see.
I "stir fry" in water often using a glass cover on a sauté pan, watching carefully; sometimes without the cover. I do just about everything that way. With meat it's called poaching but really, you only need a very small amount of water. Sometimes I use broth but I have found that even if there is a little water left over when the food is sufficiently cooked it has a flavor like a hearty soup so I drink it up. No cooking water ever thrown away.

I'm thinking that putting the veggies on a hot, dry cooking surface might be too harsh...well, I've never tried it. I like to treat my food gently so as not to spoil too much of its nutritional elements.
Just rambling.

Cook vegetables in a non stick skillet with no oil or butter. Stirring so they don't stick. Most vegetables will release enough moisture to fry. Potatoes will not on their own. A small amount fine diced with other vegetables and they will. Such as mushrooms, celery, red/yellow/green peppers, zucchini, onion (somewhat), tomato, etc. Of course they will all fry up quicker the finer they are chopped. Use a medium/medium low heat.

"Stir dry fry"? What's that?

First of all, congratulations on your terrific weight loss so far, good job!!!

An easy recipe would be stir dry fry a 1/2 to 1 cup of mixed diced vegetables (your choice), then mix in 2-3 ounces of ground turkey, keep stirring until done. Add your egg whites 1 or 2 and any seasoning you like and scramble until cooked.

In her book she mentions an egg white with ground turkey omlete or scramble...Anyone have a recipe like that?
