Bootcamp SPINACH Omelette-Frittata aka Green Eggs…

At my early morning Bootcamp I always emphasize how important nutrition is, and how especially important it is to fuel your body properly after a hard workout.

No matter if you are looking to drop body fat percentage or trying to increase endurance or strength. And as a post workout (and weight loss) option, I love spinach frittata, no let me correct that, SPINACH frittata. More like: Spinach with Omelette, speak: lot’s of spinach

This one’s called ‘Green Eggs’ for a reason. Plenty of protein for breakfast will keep you full longer and the healthy carbs from the spinach, let alone all the other super green nutrients in there are going to fuel you right! It’s simple, just three ingredients and you can omelet or frittata it. Depending on your mood, there are a couple of different ways to make it:

First off the ingredients though

Serves 2

  • 2-3 packed hands full of baby spinach,
  • 5 eggs ( or 8 egg whites)
  • 1 piece (about 1/2″ x 4″ x 1″ ) Feta cheese, cut into chunks
  • 1 tblsp Coconut oil (or oil of choice) for cooking

Here served with fresh pineapple (the enzymes found in fresh pineapple help break protein down quickly, making it more readily available for your body to use)

Directions

  1. Heat coconut oil in skillet on medium, and swirl to coat
  2. Add the spinach and let crackle and cook until some of it starts to wilt.
  3. In the meantime, scramble the eggs/egg whites in a bowl, beating with a fork or whisk until mixed and bubbly
  4. Pour eggs into pan, ‘wiggle’ the spinach a bit with a fork so the eggs can get underneath the spinach lumps.
  5. Distribute the feta cheese over top and cook until eggs are set:
  6. Once the eggs are in you can:
  • A) stick the skillet in the oven, preheated to 350 F or under the broiler ( make sure you are using a heat proof skillet, and DON’T touch the handle, no matter what, it’s very tempting, best to put a potholder over it, trust me I tried…)
  • B) flip the Omelet over or fold in half, cooking until set or crispy brown, depending on how you like it.

Just remember, only HALF of this is YOUR serving.
