This healthy frittata recipe is a great dish to bring to a post-run bRUNch with your friends. It also works as an easy option for meal prepping breakfasts for the week. Just store it in separate containers, pop it in the microwave and you’ll have breakfast in 2 minutes! Plus, it’s gluten-free and gets your day started with veggies at breakfast.
The potatoes add great texture and carbs to form a nice ‘crust’ on the bottom. The kale and onion mix add great flavor, chew and vitamins. You can swap out the kale for spinach if you have that on hand. Or be creative and use up whatever veggies you have on hand that need to be cooked.
We kept it light by using 1/2 cup sharp cheddar for the entire recipe. The sharper the cheese you use—the less you will need!
Eggs are a great source of protein to help rebuild muscle are a workout. This also helps to keep your blood sugar stable—especially if you’re enjoying a brunch with sugary muffins or other treats.
