With flavors reminiscent of the classic Greek spanakopita, this easy omelet is just right for a light dinner or brunch. Frozen leaf spinach makes it ultra-quick.
Spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach and the other dark leafy greens mentioned above strengthens bones. Spinach and other dark leafy greens like kale, collards, Swiss chard, turnip greens and bok choy are loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and iron. Spinach is also rich in vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach is a nutritional powerhouse. Eggs are a rich source of nutrition and protein.
1/4 cup cooked spinach
4 large eggs
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1. Squeeze spinach to remove any excess water. Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and the spinach; mix gently with a rubber spatula.
2. Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.
3. Heat oil in a 10-inch pre seasoned caast iron skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Slide the omelet onto a platter and cut into wedges.

|Vitamin C |
|Vitamin C is critical to good health. It helps keep your teeth and gums healthy, aids in absorbing iron, supports wound healing, and plays a role in immune system health. Registered dietitian recommends consuming at least one vitamin C rich food each day. Good choices include green peppers, strawberries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, and broccoli. A serving or two of 100% orange, grapefruit or tomato juice is also a quick, easy way to boost vitamin C intake.|
