I usually make eggs at some point on the weekend. So here’s a delicious sandwich I’ve concocted that’s very filling and packed with protein. You can vary your ingredients to make different versions. Add tomatoes, onions, different cheese, whatever you like.
1 whole wheat pita bread
2 pieces turkey bacon (preferably low-sodium)
4 egg whites (I use the whites in a carton)
1 Tbsp shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
1 handful of fresh baby spinach
Slice open one end of the pita bread for filling. Set aside. Heat frying pan on medium and cook bacon according to directions on package or until crispy. Set aside to cool. Break the bacon up into pieces when cooled.
Put egg and egg whites into a bowl. Add a pinch of pepper if desired. Try not to add salt. Whisk together. Heat frying pan on medium low. Coat with cooking spray. Add spinach and cook till it wilts. Add eggs and cheese, stirring slowly to incorporate spinach. Cook till eggs are set. Stir in crumbled bacon. Fill pita pocket with egg mixture. Eat it while its hot!
