I used to think there could not be anything that sounded more lame than a breakfast sandwich (or anything else) that was just made with egg whites! Then Peapod had a sale on Weight Watchers' Smart Ones products and something new had been added -- ***Smart Ones Morning Express English Muffin Sandwich with Egg Whites and Cheese.*** Recklessly I took a chance. I ate one for breakfast yesterday and I must admit that it was pretty good. **STATS:** One sandwich is considered to be a single serving containing 210 calories with 50 calories from fat. There are 5 grams Total Fat, 2.5 grams Saturated Fat, zero Trans Fat, 15 mg. Cholesterol, 610 mg. Sodium, 27 grams Total Carbs, 2 grams Dietary Fiber, 3 grams Sugars and **13 grams Protein**. This little sandwich also packs 4% (D.V.) Vitamin A, 8% Iron and 15% Calcium. **MY VIEWPOINT:** At first glance, the ***Smart Ones Morning Express English Muffin Sandwich with Egg Whites*** ***and Cheese*** seems to have a lot of fat and sodium but this info must be considered in context. After all, this is not a piece of cake or idle between-meal snack. That sodium was 25% of my daily quota but this nice hot breakfast which I ate at 10 A.M. satisfied, strengthened and sustained me until 4 P.M. and leave us not forget the healthy doses of protein, iron and calcium lurking in this convenient hand-held meal. I do wish that Weight Watchers and other manufacturers would get with the program and start using seasoned salt instead of the regular stuff to flavor things like this. If they did this, they could probably amp up the flavor and tone down the sodium as well. Meanwhile, I found that adding a healthy dose of black pepper enhanced the taste of my ***Smart Ones Morning Express English Muffin Sandwich with Egg Whites and Cheese***.
