The BEST way to start your Whole30 day! Protein packed yummy eggs filled with tender crisp peppers, sweet onions and creamy salty potatoes. Yum!
When I decided to start my first Whole30 my brain and stomach automatically were excited for all of the frittata possibilities. A frittata is the perfect way to start or end any week right. Starting your week off by making a frittata sets you up for success. They are healthy, filling and easy to make ahead, and heat up throughout the week for breakfast or lunch. I love having a big ole piece of frittata with a balsamic dressed mesclun salad, the combination is fantastic.
Now, ending the week by making a frittata is also great because it’s the perfect way to use up any leftover cooked or unused veggies, proteins or cheese (if you’re not doing a Whole30). The combinations and possibilities are endless. leafy greens, any kind of squash, potatoes, deli meats, you name it, it can be added to a frittata. Creamy yukon gold potatoes, tender, crunch red peppers and sweet onions are a personal favorite. This combo was a family favorite growing up so to me this is comfort food. My grandma would make “potatoes and eggs”, that’s what she called it 🙂 and my mom would make this very frittata (except hers has cheese) – if you’re looking for a non Whole30 frittata recipe – here it is!
Bottom line, whether you are looking to feed yourself all week while doing a whole30 or if you’re looking for a quick, nutritious, delicious and satisfying meal for your family, the frittata wins!Print
