1 cup baby spinach leaves (torn in half)

1 1/2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 tsp. onion powder

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

1/8 garlic (minced)

salt (to taste)

pepper (to taste)

1 tbsp. butter (for coating pan)

In a bowl, beat the eggs, and stir in the baby spinach and Parmesan cheese. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. In a skillet coated with butter over medium heat, cook the egg mixture about 3 minutes, until partially set. Flip with a spatula, and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: We have not made breakfast in forever and a day so it’s time for us to give up the Starbucks fix and start cooking in our own kitchen in the mornings. Omelets are such an enticing way to start the morning, they give you the boast of energy and filling that you need throughout the day. In combination with spinach, you can’t lose. We suggest pairing with some fresh fruit and tall glass of OJ (*Translation: orange juice:-).
