Heart Healthy Recipe Diabetes Recipe

Here’s a healthy recipe for an egg breakfast pita that’s quick and easy. Egg whites, spinach and cheese stuffed in a whole wheat pita make this egg breakfast hearty and satisfying.


    • 2 cups packed baby spinach (or 1 cup frozen, thawed and squeezed)
    • 1 green onion, chopped
    • 3/4 cup egg whites (about 6 egg whites)
    • Black pepper to taste
    • 1/3 cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
    • 1 whole wheat pita (6-inch diameter), cut in half
    • 1 Tbsp chopped parsley, optional


    • Lightly coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add spinach and green onion and cook until just wilted, about 1 minute. In a bowl, whisk together egg whites and pepper.

    • Add egg mixture to skillet and cook, tossing constantly but gently, until fluffy and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.

    • Remove from heat, add mozzarella and toss again. Spoon mixture evenly into pita halves. Top with parsley, if using. Serve immediately.
