Is Spinach and Egg considered healthy?
Some of you might think that Egg is not healthy because it's eggyolk can increase bad cholesterol (LDL) which is dangerous for your heart. However, while this might be true, egg contain good sources of protein, vitamins and other nutrients.

If your pan does not have a non-sticky function, you will not be able to make an omelette. That is because if you try to flip it, you are just going to breakdown the egg and ruin it. And of course, you need a spatula to flip the omelette.
