I’m not a complicated breakfast person and if neither are you, then you will love this healthy and easy Spinach Bird’s Nest Eggs breakfast recipe!

Organic egg and extra egg whites panfried with spinach, onion and bell pepper in a tomato paste sauce.

Previously, I was scared of the eggs because of the fat and cholesterol content. Last week I was reading a Clean Eating magazine issue and came across famous Tosca Reno bragging how she eats eggs every day?!

Apparently, egg yolk contains 90% of egg’s calcium and iron, as well as “dietary cholesterol” that  increases good cholesterol, HDL, and is different from the “blood cholesterol”. And then egg whites are full of protein. That’s why I poured some extra.:)

To sum it all up, eggs for breakfast keep you full longer all day long thus helping the weight loss. They are also full of iron, zinc and phosphorus and could prevent breast cancer. On the other note, you could skip the egg overall, and make the recipe only with egg whites.

And then come veggies. Chances are you don’t eat spinach for breakfast unless you are juicing or making green smoothies. This breakfast recipe provides you with 3 big handfuls of a miracle green – spinach. Full of iron, vitamins A, K, C, E, calcium and cancer fighting abilities.

Save time by buying washed organic baby spinach and cutting the vegetables the night before. You could even prep the veggies for a couple of days and refrigerate in a sealed container.

I strongly believe in organic food particularly dairy and meat if budget allows. I always buy organic eggs from a local store or a farmer. There is an old German lady in my town and every time I drive by her house, I stock up on wonderful fresh organic eggs. They are even different in size.:)

And making the Bird’s Nest is really fun! Kids love to help! Enjoy!

    I eat an egg most days, usually soft boiled for lunch. I will try this. I was just camping in my cousin’s garden with my family and they had chickens – when we left they gave me 6 eggs and they are the most wonderful eggs I have ever had – a box of good eggs is a much much better gift than a box of chocolates!! I only have 2 left – we may have to get our own chickens!
