Sweet Potato and Zucchini Egg White Mini Frittatas

ingredientseggwhitefrittatas

The first frittata I tried was my college roommate’s. She picked up the recipe during her semester in Spain and was mad at work cooking the cheese, egg, and potato together. I took a bite. The mixture was hearty, cheesy, and I was hooked.

Recently, I’ve been attempting to make healthy and meal prep friendly foods. I’ve cooked batches of chicken meatballs and turkey meatballs to pack for lunch. When I decided to look for a simple and meatless lunch option, I turned to the frittata. I learned that with a muffin tin I could cook a bunch of mini frittatas.

These frittatas are both healthy and full of flavor. I substituted egg whites for eggs and added my favorite vegetables, sweet potatoes and zucchini.

    Good morning. I am totally enjoying your blog. You remind me of a younger me…. Eating healthy, running, reading. I can not get enough. I wanted to share my thoughts , if it helps your eating plan. Water water water. I do 80 oz a day. In the morning up til 10am i do fruits only and 32 oz of water. , you gotta get hydrated after not eating during the night. ( I try to never have fruit and greens at the same meal, learned this when I took clases for being a dietician …. They have to different properties and do not agree with stomach acids. Lunch : fresh spinach and hummus roll ups. Bean -veg- quinoa noodles. Or make it a soup is a protein pack lunch. Broccoli and green peas to munch on. Dinner: 3 oz steak and tons more of greens. Only bread I eat is mini pita and tortillas. Never sandwich bread. Who know what the are putting in that. If I gotta have a sweet. Dried coconut , dried peaches. 80 %cocoa dark chocolate. And I can not give up my coffee Snack; Bowl of multiple grain Cheerios I add granola with almond milk. Continue loving San Diego and the sunshine. Love to you and Gerred. Sent from my iPhone
