Health Rating
A healthy breakfast pita loaded with healthy fats.

Ingredients


1 large egg Egg
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch Salt and pepper
1/2 cup Baby spinach
1/4 avocado(s) Avocado
1 dash Sriracha (Optional; to taste)
1/2 medium pita Pita bread, whole-wheat

Instructions


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat on your stovetop. 
  2. Once warm, add the olive oil to the pan and wait 30 seconds, allowing it to heat up. Crack the egg in the warm oil and cook until desired consistency (over easy, sunny side up, over hard, scrambled, etc.), and season with salt and pepper.
  3. While the egg is cooking, slice the avocado and place the avocado slices inside the pita and smash them over the surface of one side of the pita with a fork.
  4. Stuff baby spinach into the pita. 
  5. Just before the egg is finished cooking drizzle with Sriracha. Once the egg is cooked add it to the pita.
  6. Either serve the pita immediately or grill the pita in the skillet on both sides to make it crispier. 

Notes:

Optional: substitute salsa or hot sauce for Sriracha and add any other veggies to the pita along with spinach before inserting cooked egg.

Quick Tips
