Spinach-cheese egg scramble


Give your morning eggs a nutrition makeover! Sauté a few handfuls of baby spinach in oil spray, then add in 1 whole egg whipped with 2 to 3 egg whites. (I use mostly egg whites to cut back on the saturated fat and calories and bump up the protein.) Sprinkle with ¼ cup shredded reduced-fat cheese and scramble away! Enjoy with half a grapefruit on the side.
