Quick and Healthy Breakfast

I'm trying to eat a bit healthier, but with E in school (or just with E in general!) I need foods that are quick and healthy. Here's what I had for breakfast (no picture, because I was hungry and couldn't make myself go upstairs to get my camera.)

Cheesy Spinach and Eggs

2 eggs
2 C. raw spinach
Sprinkle of sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
Pan spray

Heat frying pan over medium heat, and spray generously with pan spray (like Pam.) Meanwhile, lightly beat eggs in a bowl with salt and pepper, set aside. Add spinach to pan and cook until ALMOST all wilted--it goes fast, and you'll be surprised at how much it wilts down--to about 1/2 cup.) Pour eggs over spinach, and stir together until eggs are cooked. Place on plate, sprinkle with cheddar cheese (I like sharp cheddar, but anything goes!) Serve with a piece of toast, or in my case, a mini croissant because that's what I had in my kitchen.


I promise this isn't turning into a cooking blog! I think it's the weather--it's cold and dreary and forcing me to focus on comfort, which to me is food. I AM working on a quilt for E's Christmas present, which is nearly pieced--hopefully it will be sandwiched and pinned for quilting tonight! Pictures soon!

To change it up a little: sauté a clove of garlic and then add the eggs and spinach. Once the eggs are cooked enough, turn off the heat add a few small dollops of cream cheese and toss the mix a couple of times. Delish!
