  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1 whole-wheat English muffin, toasted
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 egg

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup plain 2 percent fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped dill
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped parsley

Mix the sauce ingredients together and set aside so that it has a chance to come to room temperature while you are preparing the eggs and spinach. In a steamer, steam the spinach for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain any excess water. Set aside. Top the toasted English muffin with the spinach and eggs; delicately spoon the sauce on top.

  • 1 cup bell peppers, sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 3 plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 4 oz. lean round steak

  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. low-sodium chicken broth

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the skillet with olive oil spray and add the bell peppers and red onion. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the tomatoes and spinach. Heat through, stirring, until the spinach wilts. Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside. Place the steak in a hot skillet and cook for at least 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, combine the parsley, cilantro, mint, garlic, lemon juice, and broth in a food processor or blender and process until coarsely blended. Cut the steak into strips and serve on top of vegetables. Drizzle the chimichurri sauce over the steak.
