If you haven't heard of Vital Juice and you're into everything from health and fitness, to beauty and fashion, then you'd really like their newsletter. It's always filled with great tips that are often the hidden gems of the city.

Beat eggs in a bowl, add salt, pepper. Saute' onions in olive oil until translucent, set aside to cool. Thaw out spinach and drain of as much water as possible.

Make these on Sunday and store in the refrigerator for the week. Grab one or two, pop them in the microwave for about 10 seconds to warm up and head out the door with breakfast in hand.
Each egg "quiche" has approximately:
