A Light Italian Omelet

Breakfast is considered as one of the most important meals of the day. It provides the energy for the entire morning till lunch. While sugar filled cereals and confectioneries like donuts or pastries satisfy our immediate hunger pangs (with a hot cup of joe, of course), the truth is, such a breakfast will have your stomach growl by 9:00AM. The best way to stave off the distraction of mid morning munchies is to start your day with protein. However, with the morning rush, it seems a lot easier to just grab some coffee and a muffin compared to assembling an omelet. Well, it doesn't have to be that complicated. Here's a simple Italian recipe that you can prepare the night before: potato and spinach frittata.
