When I am not eating oatmeal every morning during the week, I also indulge in a frittata. I’ve already mentioned how I pop it into the oven and then go and wake the kids up in the mornings. By the time my slow pokes are ready, so is the frittata for a very healthy start to our mornings. Another low-carb breakfast is my Tex-Mex steak and eggs skillet.

Because lordy, I get tired of oatmeal. However, while people might think I eat crazy, decadent things all week long, the sad truth is that it has to be oatmeal or protein in the mornings, a salad or sandwich for lunch (if we haven’t gone out for lunch) and then dinner that I try to make as healthy as possible most nights. All the delicious baked goods on my website usually end up in the volunteer room at school or donated to unsuspecting
I also have to make up for all the eating out we do while travelling and all the food events I go to. And let’s be honest, I’m not giving up wine or drinking anytime soon, so THAT’S not being cut out. 😉
So these are the reality of my mornings. Protein and veggies.
It’s a damn fine start to your day.
(and omg, it’s better than oatmeal)
This one is a family favorite. I don’t know if it’s because of the amazing tomatoes on top or the salty goodness of the feta (for me, it’s surely that salty goodness) but I can eat this all week long.
I love this frittata so much that I forgive it for being healthy, and that takes something.
More Frittata Recipes
Feel free as usual to play around with the amount of eggs and white, I always try to use some egg whites instead mixed with whole eggs. You can use egg replacer just fine, I actually have used ALL egg whites and it still tastes great! That’s thanks to the garlic, onion and salty, salty feta!
Mmm, salty feta.
Happy Cooking everyone!
I definitely love you more than oatmeal.
