Take a metric ton of raw spinach and place it on the stove. Just kidding. Sort of. Spinach cooks down to a very small portion so you can always start with an absolutely HUGE amount for one person. We go with 6 cups here. Cook it in a dry pan for just a little longer before adding the egg whites if you like it a little crispy. This breakfast is light. Double up if you like.



  1. Spray pan with olive oil cooking spray. Add raw spinach to the pan and cook until wilted. Add the egg whites and cook like scrambled eggs until cooked through. Season to taste with herbs and hot sauce if desired. Sprinkle with cheese. *You can easily double this recipe for a heartier breakfast or add more veggies.
