Mix together 2-6 Eggs getting rid of 1/3 to 1/2 the yokes to keep the fat content lower while keeping the protein high.
Two egg whites equal the protein in an entire egg approximately but less calories so keep that in mind with how many eggs you need.
Add in 1-2 servings of vegetables for vitamins and flavor, and don't be chintzy on the veggies.
One of my secrets is to use frozen chopped vegetables or even canned to cut down on prep time in the morning. All veggies will be great in a frittata but here are my favorites:
- Mixed Bell Peppers (more color the better)
- Spinach (you can use frozen or even salad baby spinach)
- Tomatoes (I'll even use grape tomatoes)
- Black Beans
Add herbs (basil, oregano, cilantro), salsa or just some salt and pepper to add to the flavors
Add 1-2 pieces of whole grain wheat or rye toast
Toast will add calories and fiber to the meal so depending on your goals eat more or less toast.
Between the protein and fiber we have another super satiating breakfast. Remember that this is a frittata and not an omelet, so don't cover it in cheese and ruin it. Also, only a thin layer of butter or jelly on that toast or better yet a thin layer of peanut butter for healthier oils.
