Nutritional values

Spinach provides us with a lot of iron - the trace element is important for blood formation and oxygen transport in the blood. Eggs score points with the fat-soluble vitamins E, D, K and A. The latter is important for healthy eyes.

The tortilla also tastes really good cold and is a great low-carb snack for in between or for the lunch break.
