Spinach Artichoke Omelet

I'm BACK!!!  I'm a mom to a perfect little boy, Brody!!  I'm smitten and more in love with this little man than I ever thought possible!  I finally had time to make a grocery list this week, AND I even found time to make a new recipe! (well, I'll be honest....Ross made this while I fed Brody!) It was really good - and very healthy!!  I need to get back in shape, so I hope to be finding/making some more healthy eats in the future!
Serves 1 - Recipe by Our Best Bites

1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon water or milk
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
pinch of garlic powder
1 wedge Laughing Cow cheese, regular or garlic herb
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach leaves
3 marinated artichoke hearts, diced
1 tablespoon fresh shredded Parmesan cheese

 Heat an 8-inch nonstick frying pan to medium heat.  Whisk together egg, egg whites, and water, and add a sprinkle of salt, a few cracks of pepper, and a pinch of garlic powder.

Spray pan with nonstick spray (or brush with olive oil).  Add egg mixture and swirl to coat bottom of pan.  Use a rubber spatula to slowly scrape from the outside edge of the omelet inward, letting runny eggs flow to bottom of pan.  Do this several times, then place a lid on the pan and turn heat to low.  Cook until top is just barely set.  Drop small dollops of Laughing Cow cheese on top, followed by chopped spinach, artichoke hearts, and Parmesan cheese.  Sprinkle top with additional salt and pepper and then slide onto serving plate (either folded over, or open faced.)
