Spinach and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches

There are times in our lives when we must eat more protein than usual — one of those times is when you're pregnant. Spinach and eggs both contain a lot of protein, making for a perfect combo in this breakfast sandwich. 

One cup of cooked spinach has a whopping 13 grams of protein while an egg white contributes 3.6 grams and a whole egg 6.29 grams.  That's a great amount of protein to start the day off with, especially for an expecting mother.

The process for this sandwich is simple, yet the flavor is completely satisfying, with a perfect balance of spice from the salsa and cool flavor from the cheese. I like to use whole wheat or whole grain and high fiber English muffins, but a plain English Muffin will do.  Bagels are another option, though they do contain more carbs and, of course two slices of bread will also get the job done. 

I hope you enjoy this high-protein breakfast sandwich. It's worth it whether you're pregnant or not!
