Healthy and Easy Frittata Recipe
Health Coach and Chef Jennifer Moore’s frittata recipe is so versatile and easy and a great dish to make once a week that you can eat for days after. It is also perfect for this time of year as it tastes so good cold too and is ideal for summer picnics. If you are off to the beach for a picnic or a friend’s house for a barbeque today, this dish will be greatly appreciated.
She says: ‘One of the biggest things I hear from people is that they don’t have time to make healthy food. This is definitely a secret weapon for your healthy fridge. Make a frittata on a Sunday night and you have meals for days prepared. You can eat them all day long: for breakfast, a sneaky slice for a snack, or for lunch or dinner. You can grab a slice, wrap it in tin foil to eat on the go or at work for breakfast. Add a big salad and have it for lunch or dinner. Quick, easy, filling and healthy. Ticks all my boxes! Plus the possibilities are endless. It’s a great way to use up veggies you might have hanging around.’
