1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped bell peppers (red, green, or yellow)
1/4 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Add the chopped bell peppers and sauté for about 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.
