    Veggies for breakfast! If you haven’t tried it, this skillet is a simple way to get 1 1/2 servings of vegetables in before leaving the house!


    3 large eggs
    6 large egg whites
    1/4 teaspoon ground basil
    1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
    1/2 cup diced onion
    1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
    1 15-ounce can low-sodium red kidney beans
    2 1/2 cups fresh baby spinach


    1. In a small bowl, whisk together whole eggs, egg whites, basil, oregano, garlic powder and pepper. Set aside.
    2. In a 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    3. Add onion and mushrooms. Stir. Cook for 5 minutes or until tender.
    4. Add beans and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through. Whisk the egg mixture (made in step 1) and pour into skillet.
