    That looks so amazing & it would be perfect for me. I need to have protein at every meal & I love any kind of greens with my food. Spinach is so good for you! I may make it tomorrow for lunch in fact (already planned cottage cheese over a rice cake topped with sliced fresh strawberries for breakfast!) Thank you for sharing Kimberlee!

    Very We slightly wilt the spinach and then throw the eggs directly in the pan for a “messy” omelet. (Sometimes I’ll add other stuff too like a little ground sausage, onions, etc.)
