Tips!

An egg is a powerhouse of low-carb nutrition. Each large egg has about 7 grams of complete protein, having all nine essential amino acids. It is also a source of healthy fat and almost no carbs. Plus it has 14 different vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, D, B12, and E, as well as iron, selenium, magnesium, and choline, an essential nutrient for nerve development and maintenance. Eat up!

Feel free to swap kale or Swiss chard for the spinach.

Slice and fry green and red peppers for add flavor and visual appeal.

For a tasty topping, sprinkle the eggs with some grated parmesan or cheddar just before removing them from the pan.

    Can olive oil or avocado be swapped in for the mayo for the healthy fat ? If so how much of either would be needed for the replacement?

    The mayo can be used as a dressing or dip for the spinach, so you can drizzle either oil over the spinach as a dressing if you prefer. Use enough to fill you up but you don't want to drown the greens.
