What you’ll do:

1. Clean shrimp.

2. Spray pan with cooking spray. Cook shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently. While cooking, add seasonings.

3. Spray another pan with cooking spray. Add egg whites, vegetables and seasonings. Cook on medium heat. As eggs begin to set, start scrambling.

4. Slice avocado. (Unlike pictured above, make sure the ripeness is just right. Pull the stem. If it’s green underneath, it’s good to eat. If it’s brown, it’s too ripe.)
