My goal was simple: come up with a recipe that took the same amount of time as prepping a smoothie but was savory, high protein and low carb. I’m thrilled to share that mission: accomplished.

Spinach, peppers and onions are sautéed in olive oil and Greek spices then topped with a runny egg and creamy feta. It couldn’t be easier to make and it kept me full and satisfied until lunch. Feel free to get creative and use any veggies you have on hand or top it with scrambled, poached or hard boiled eggs. The options are endless.
