Veggie Frittata

Nothing beats breakfast for dinner, good ol’ pancakes or scrambled eggs, especially if you’re short on groceries (or have an awkwardly strong love for breakfast buffets). We whipped up a frittata for dinner tonight, which hit the spot after a run for one and a yoga session for the other. Dinner was ready in 20 minutes, and packed with the healthy protein of eggs (1 egg provides 6 grams of protein, nutrients and essential amino acids at only 68 calories), antioxidant-packed veggies and a sprinkle of the good stuff–cheeese. We usually don’t order frittatas from restaurants because we’ve found they’re often slightly over-cooked and get that spongey consistency, so we made sure not to over-bake ours. Substitute this recipe with any veggies you have on hand–we recommend trying to keep a balance of sweet (tomatoes, corn, peppers) and savory (kale, broccoli, mushrooms, spinach) veggies.
