Cheese (of your choice)


Night 1: Chicken and Spinach Omelet

Pump up the protein with breakfast for dinner!

1.    Sauté the chicken in a pan until almost fully cooked.

2.    Add the spinach and the cheese.

Night 2: Grilled Chicken Salad

A light and fresh meal to rejuvenate for the rest of the week

1.    Boil the eggs until hard.

2.    Combine the cooked chicken with the spinach, tomatoes, cheese and eggs.

Night 3: Chicken Egg Drop Soup

A soothing mid-week meal

1.    Cook the chicken.

2.    Combine four cups of water, chicken and spinach. Bring to a boil.

3.    In a small bowl, whisk five egg whites. Pour the egg whites very slowly into the boiling broth while whisking continuously. They will cook instantly when they hit the broth. (Note: Add cornstarch or chicken broth if you want to thicken.)

Night 4: Cheesy Tomato and Spinach Frittata

Sure to become a household favorite

A hearty meal to kick off the weekend

1.    Sauté the spinach in a pan.
