Here is a quick, tasty dish that uses
one of the healthiest veggies you can find.

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 bunch Swiss Chard, remove
tough stems and chop leaves
5 oz. roasted red peppers,
drained and chopped

Heat oil in an oven proof non-stick pan over
medium high heat.  Add onion and garlic and cook,
stirring for about 5 minutes.  Add chard and peppers,
cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes.

Whisk together eggs, egg whites, salt and
pepper in medium bowl, add mozzarella.

Pour over vegetable mixture and stir gently
