Fitness Crazed Foodie
Lover of all things food and fitness related
After a month of birthdays, vacations, and never-ending celebrations, I am back on the Whole 30 as a solid reset to my digestive system and eating behavior. Buuuuut this time I'm calling it the "Dirty 30", as I will incorporate some alcoholic beverages while staying strict with the food. I can't say no to the beginning of patio season drinking!
My first go-to for a Whole 30 recipe was this simple and flavorful frittata that was my lunch for every day last week. It takes 30 minutes to make and it can be the star of any meal. I served it alongside some roasted sweet potato fries and mixed greens with Trader Joe's Green Goddess dressing. I can't believe this was my first time trying this dressing because I have heard so much about it...and all the hype is true! Write it down on your next grocery list and you'll be forever grateful you did.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small white onion
1 cup steamed broccoli
1 cup steamed cauliflower
Optional: 3 chicken sausages or Italian sausage (with no sugar added)
10 eggs (can sub for 1/2 egg whites if want a lower fat version)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
Salt and pepper and paprika
Preheat oven to 425F.
Heat up olive oil over medium heat in large cast iron pan (10'') for 2 minutes and add chopped white onion. Sauté for about 5 minutes, or until they become translucent. Add the steamed cauliflower and broccoli on top of the onions (I steam in the microwave with a little water and cover with paper towel for 4 minutes). Add sliced chicken sausage on top of veggies. Turn the heat off of the stove.
Whisk eggs, milk and seasonings in a separate bowl and pour this mixture over the ingredients in the sauté pan. Carefully transfer the skillet pan to the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes, until the edges get brown and there is just a slight jiggle in the center.
Let it sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving, or putting it in Tupperware for the week!
Some great toppings: salsa, avocado and cilantro... or some parsley, grated parmesan, and red pepper flakes!
^^^ Not pretty, but this is what a typical meal-prepped lunch looks like at work!
This frittata should make about 8 servings, but I doubled up at the end of the week when I ran out of sweet potato fries :)
Enjoy! And comment if you have any other topping ideas or sides to go along with it!
