8.) Top with salt and pepper. I also suggest adding avocado and/or salsa, because the more food the better right?


Zucchini Spinach Frittata (Total time: 15 minutes, Serves 1)

A meal for any time of day, plus it makes a fairly heaping portion. This is something I like to eat for lunch after a workout, and before I go to work since it’s full of protein, and extremely filling. It also packs in a nice amount of veggies, even though it’s hard to tell because they shrink down so much. If you feel like straying from the recipe a bit, any leftover meat or veggies work great and save you even more time. I chose these ingredients because I often have them available at my house, but you can easily add or replace things to customize this recipe to your convenience.

Ingredients:

1 zucchini

2 small handfuls of spinach or lettuce mix

3 slices of deli ham chopped into small “square-ish” shapes

A couple of tablespoons of grated hard cheese like parmesan

2 eggs

1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

Optional: Avocado, Salsa

Note* If you are using a large pan, double the ingredient amounts, and it will make exactly two servings!

Directions:

1: Wash your zucchini and lettuce (Unless you get the pre-washed kind like me because who really has time to wash lettuce?)

2: Slice up your ham and grate your cheese

3: Heat up a small pan with your oil on medium heat

4: Add your veggies and ham to the pan and sauté until they are golden and have shrunk significantly in size

5: Turn oven on to broil

6: Mix up your eggs in a bowl

7: Pour eggs over the veggie/ham mixture and make sure it is spread evenly, then sprinkle cheese on top

8: Place in oven for 3 minutes, until puffed and slightly golden

9: Add any toppings you want, and eat the whole thing:)
