Egg White Spinach Omlete

I know this is one of those that sounds odd but it is really yummy!

First why egg whites?

Egg whites are low in calories, have no fat, no cholesterol and are abundant in protein. Egg whites only have 17 calories per egg. One egg yolk, however, has two thirds the recommended amount of cholesterol and has 59 calories!

Spinach as we all know is a power food and feta cheese is low in fat but has a nice sharp taste that compliments these flavors well.
