How to make this recipe:
First, in a bowl, whisk the eggs until they are smooth.
Next, place a large pan on the stove on low heat and add the coconut oil. Once the oil is melted, pour the eggs into the pan. Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper and let them cook for a few minutes until the edges are starting to brown.
Now add the cut chicken, cheese, tomato and spinach to half of the omelette and allow it to cook for a few more minutes.
Lastly, use a spatula to fold the omelette in half and cook it for a few more minutes, until the omelette is golden and cooked through.
