First off, if you have tried to reach my website and received some sort of error in the past several days, please accept my apologies for the inconvenience. My web host has been giving me grief, and I’ve spent a good deal of time in the past two days waiting on hold and corresponding with evasive technicians. *groan* I am going to be switching web hosting providers as soon as I can find one that will meet my needs, so until then, please hang in there and know that I’m not going anywhere!
Back to regularly-scheduled programming…
My 13 year old sister Katelyn is a whiz in the kitchen, and she has this easy little recipe for spinach eggs that she made up and eats multiple times a week for breakfast. She makes them for my dad sometimes, and they both just rave about these things. I’m like, “How magical can eggs and spinach be?” So she made them for me, and they were actually really good. The spinach gets kind of crispy underneath, and they’re just a notch above plain ol’ eggs for breakfast. So if you need something quick and easy that’s just a little different from the norm, check these eggs out.
My sister is kind of a health nut. Most of you know Pearl and Serene from the Trim Healthy Mama book. Well, I am Pearl and Katelyn is Serene. In a total metaphorical way. Katelyn does not use microwaves. She throws a fit if I use one teensy-tiny drop of food coloring in anything, and if I happen to eat off plan at a social gathering…oh, that glare of doom.
But I still like her. Especially when she cooks for me.
I said all that to say that if Katelyn makes something, you know that it has great health benefits. In this recipe you get eggs, coconut oil, and spinach: three foundational foods. And no microwaves involved.
I like to top my eggs with wasabi sauce…

You can find this recipe in my cookbook, Necessary Food.
- Large handful of fresh spinach, roughly chopped
- Coconut oil (use refined if you don't want a faint coconut flavor)
- Garlic salt
- 2-3 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- In a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat (the higher the heat, the crispier the spinach will get), sauté the spinach in a small dollop of coconut oil until the spinach starts to soften. Season it with garlic salt. Crack two or three eggs on top of the spinach, turn the heat down to medium, and cover the pan with a lid. Let the eggs steam to your desired doneness (do not flip the eggs). Season the eggs with salt and pepper, top with wasabi sauce if you like, and enjoy!
