Be A Master of your Frittata

I made this scrumptious breakfast on Monday even though I was suppose to make another type of Frittata I goofed and made this one. It was a great mistake let me tell you because the flavor in this meal was AMAZING!! I got this recipe from Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet Stripped book (pg. 205). 

I am doing a modified version of the stripped plan this week. I am happy with my weight where it is but I am not happy with some of my actions lately.  I have not been making the best decisions and have been giving in a LOT more.  I need to whip myself back and so I thought this would help.  

Regardless if you want to lose weight or not this breakfast is something to talk about.  You have a lot of choices on how you want to make it and it is great for breakfast or any other meal of throughout the day.  

Be A Master of your Frittata

First you start with your base:
1 egg
5 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
clean eating cooking spray

Choose 3/4 cup to 1 cup of Veggies, Protein, and starches

Veggies (these can be raw or cooked):
Asparagus, bell peppers, chili peppers, greens (arugula, kale, mustard, spinach), leeks, mushrooms, scallions, yellow squash, zucchini

Proteins (cooked):
Bay shrimp, prawns, chicken breast, lean pork, salmon, trout 

Starches and Grains (cooked):
Potatoes (baby red, yukon gold, or russet)
Brown rice

Choose 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh herbs:
Basil, chives, cilantro, dill, parsley, tarragon

1. Move rack in oven to second highest position. Preheat to broil.
2. Whisk together frittata base ingredients except cooking spray. Chop selected veggies into one-inch pieces.  Chop precooked proteins and potatoes into one-inch pieces. Chop herbs if using. 
3. Heat an eight-inch non-stick, oven-safe saute pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.  Add veggies to pan and saute for two minutes until they start to soften.  Add remaining ingredients (proteins, starches/grains) then pour egg mixture into pan.  Sprinkle in herb of choice and stir with rubber spatula.  Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until egg mixture is set on bottom and beginning to set on top. 
4. Place pan into oven and broil for two minutes, until lightly browned and fluffy.  Remove frittata from pan and cut into four wedges.
