Feta & Cilantro Egg White Omelet

As much as I love to cook and am knowledgeable about food, it still seems like it is a constant struggle to eat as healthy as possible while getting enough protein. The best way to do this is with a recipe that achieves this while tasting great.
Almost everyone knows how healthy an egg white omelet is but as for taste it’s not so good. In the past I have scrambled a whole egg with an extra white but I have noticed that I am often not getting enough protein. So I came up with this recipe and I find that not only does it taste good but I actually love it. It feels like a comfort food and that is the way healthy food should feel.
- 3-4 liquid egg whites
- 1" cube of feta cheese (use the regular kind, not low fat which has NO taste)
- ½ cup cilantro leaves (not chopped)

- ¼ tsp cumin
