Popeye Scramble

All the nutrition and health experts recommend that you fill up on healthy, satisfying food before heading to that holiday party or meal to avoid over-indulging. This will certainly do the trick! It is a generous portion of food, very filling and will keep you going for a while...all for just:

450 calories, 6g of fat, 50g protein, 49g carbs and 8g fibre

Warning: Don't attempt to eat this like a sandwich, it is way too much food, it's a knife and fork meal!

300g package frozen, chopped spinach, thawed
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbls of your favorite salsa
1 cup egg whites/Egg Beaters/Egg Creations, etc.
Jalapeno flakes, to taste (optional)
Cracked black pepper, to taste
23g cheese (1 cheese string), chopped into small pieces
1 whole grain flat bun (like D'Italiano Thintini), toasted

Place spinach in non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Once spinach starts sizzling, add garlic and stir until garlic starts to get fragrant. Add salsa and stir and then pour in eggs. Season to taste with peppers. Once egg starts to cook, sprinkle cheese over top and gently stir mixture until eggs are done. Spoon mixture over the 2 halves of the flat bun (there will be so much, you'll really have to mound it on) and enjoy!

This makes a very filling and healthy meal ideal for breakfast, lunch or dinner.


  1. I would add egg whites to this - bind it all together some and then probably eat half at a time. Sounds terrific!

  2. Oops, there is egg in it...that some how got deleted from the original post...fixing now!
