Ingredients:

4 egg whites

1/2 cup mushrooms
1 tsp canola oil

Cook for about 2-3 minutes. Using a spatula pick up the eggs and let the uncooked “runny” part of the eggs flow underneath. Cook for another minute. Spoon the cheese and then the spinach mixture onto the top of the eggs and flip one side of the eggs over the other to create the omelet shape and slide onto the plate. Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for 1 minute until cheese is melted.
