Add the spinach and mix it around with the spatula until it has wilted. Pour in the egg-whites and sprinkle the feta cheese over the egg-whites & veggies. Let the eggs form edges around the pain and periodically lift one side to let the liquid from the middle form the outside of the omelet. Once the liquid is gone from the center, flip half of the egg onto the opposite side. Let it cook for a few more minutes and then flip the omelet, so the other side can brown a little as well.
