Place a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly mist the pan with the olive oil spray. Add the ham, asparagus, onion, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the asparagus is crisp-tender and the onion is tender. Remove the pan from the heat and cover to keep warm.

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites with a fork until they bubble lightly. Season with salt and pepper.

Place a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly mist the pan with the spray. Add the egg whites and cook, lifting the edges with a spatula as they start to set and tipping the pan to allow the uncooked whites to run underneath, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until almost set. Flip the omelet. Sprinkle the ham mixture over half of the omelet. Flip the bare half over the filled half and transfer to a serving plate. Serve immediately.
