Helpful Hints:
1. If you're worried about using the whole egg yolk, you can use three egg whites instead as egg whites don't contain cholesterol.
2. If you want your scrambled egg to be a little bit soft, add a little bit of milk. Choose the low-fat, high calcium milk.
3. Add just a pinch of salt, not too much because salt is the biggest source of sodium in our diet.
4. Use just a little bit of oil since it is a concentrated source of calories. Use unsaturated oil which is good for your heart.
5. Add chopped chillies if you like it spicy.
6. Don't put the corriander leaves in too early as they will wilt and you will lose the flavour.
7. Use whitemeal bread because it's very high in fibre as it contains wheat germs and bran.
