If you’re on the lookout for a nourishing, healthy breakfast that’s easy to make and filled with flavor I’ve got the perfect recipe for you! It has all the nutrients you need to start your day off with great energy for whatever activities you have planned.
This frittata is versatile and delicious and perfect for any meal from brunch to dinner. I’ve included a vegetarian option as well, if that’s your preference. I’ve made many versions of this recipe over time, and while each of them have been delicious, today’s combination is one of my favorites.
I used spinach for the boost of potassium (which can help reduce blood pressure) (1), and bell peppers which are high in vitamin C and antioxidants, helping to reduce inflammation and protect against disease (2, 3).
I also included artichoke hearts which are rich in nutrients, vitamins and fiber, and are particularly high in inulin (4), a type of fiber which promotes a heathy digestive system (5).
You can make endless variations with this recipe and you can get creative with the leftovers (if you have them). I love to use a slice as a sandwich filling, or serve it with a salad for a quick lunch or dinner.
I hope you enjoy it!
