spinach and egg

I’m a pretty simple cook, but sometimes the simple things in life are the best.   You don’t have to achieve great feats of molecular gastronomy to get a hearty nutrient dense start to the day.

This recipe is a simply egg and spinach fried up with some dill, some cream with the egg and coconut oil with the spinach for cooking.

The ‘secret’ here is to go heavy on the spinach.  Spinach always gives an amazing nutritional profile.

Even with four eggs and 300g of spinach the end result is still very much ketogenic as well as being nutrient dense!

For some extra taste and you could throw in some mozzarella with the egg.

For all it’s simplicity, this recipe ends up ranking at #9 in the diabetes and nutritional ketosis ranking and #17 in the therapeutic ketogenic meals ranking.
