How is this Diabetic Friendly? You start with 2 whole eggs instead of 2 eggs whites, you're sauting in 1 tbsp of butter instead of unsalted butter, you also add swiss cheese instead of adding any low sodium cheese. You add an 1/8 tsp of salt, is that table, sea or kosher. Kosher has less sodium. I will truly rework this recipe so that it can be Low Sodium/Diabetic Friendly.

- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup coarsely chopped spinach
- 1/3 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup (1 1/2 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1. Blend and Pour. Process eggs and 2 Tbsp. water in a blender until blended. Melt butter in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat; add spinach and tomatoes, and saut´´ 1 minute or until spinach is wilted. Add salt and egg mixture to skillet.
- 2. Lift and Tilt. As egg mixture starts to cook, gently lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so uncooked egg mixture flows underneath, cooking until almost set (about 1 minute). Cover skillet, and cook 1 minute.
- 3. Fold and Serve. Sprinkle omelet with cheese and pepper. Fold omelet in half, allowing cheese to melt. Slide cooked omelet onto a serving plate, and season with salt to taste. Serve with buttered toast and fresh fruit.
