Vitalize Your Body With This Homemade Frittata!
I titled this frittata dish, “The Fit For A King Frittata” for a reason. It’s so divine, I would serve it to the royal family. Haha! It’s scrumptious, simple to prepare, healthy, and fluffy. What more could you want? I must give partial street credit to my husband Brandon. He is the Frittata Guru!
The beauty of frittatas is that you can load them with a wide assortment of veggies. Many people tell me that they waste tons of vegetables because they don’t know what to do with them. With frittatas you can use up the veggies that you have in your fridge. When you make more of an effort to reduce your waste you not only help your pocket book, but the environment too.
The health benefits in this frittata comes from not only the veggies, but the eggs too. Eggs add protein to help build lean muscle, B vitamins to combat stress, and vitamin D to increase your energy. The quality is of your eggs is utmost importance. Free-range or pasture raised eggs provide higher levels of vitamin D and Omega 3’s. My professional recommendation is to consume no more than 2 eggs at a time and 6 total eggs per week. Rotating your eggs to no more than every other day will provide a wider variety of nutrients, prevent boredom and potential food sensitivities.
