Key Nutrition Facts:

A frying pan can be your best friend in the morning- Add some veggies and eggs to the fire and you are rewarded with a filling, nutritious breakfast in very little time. Feel free to be creative with your add-ins. This recipe is especially rich in protein from the eggs and healthful monounsaturated fat from the avocado. Spinach and other vegetables you may add in provide many vitamins and minerals. Option – If you prefer to cut back on egg yolks, simply use extra whites instead of some or all of the yolks.
