This is a place where we smash diet culture. Meaning, there is no room for fad diets, eliminating food groups, juice cleanses or glorifying "clean eating." This blog is meant to bring truth and shed light on the fact that ALL foods provide us with energy no matter what. Food is meant to be enjoyed and my goal is to ultimately remove the guilt and shame that diet culture may have taught you & nurture a positive relationship with food.

Eggstreme Vegetable Frittata

This Mixed Veggie Frittata is everything when all I want to make is a single meal prep dish for the week and then I alternate in easy to make dinners or lunches! Scroll on down to the bottom for the full recipe.

Don’t feel like you MUST stick with the same veggies listed in the recipe. I typically use the base of this recipe to clean out my fridge every couple of weeks. Throw your leftover veggies in and somehow it all turns out super delicious no matter what!

  • 3 Tbsp Avocado Oil ((1 Tbsp for cooking vegetables and the rest is to prevent sticking to the pan))
  • 1 Clove Garlic ((pressed))

  • 1/2 Bell Pepper ((Chopped))
  • 1/2 Cup Zucchini ((cut into quarters))
  • 1/2 Roma Tomato ((Cubed))

  3. Add the Bell Peppers, cook for an additional 3 minutes.

  4. Add the Zucchini & Tomato and cook until softened.

  5. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper. Put the heat to low while you whisk together all of the eggs and herbs.

  6. Pour in the additional 2 Tbsp of Avocado Oil to the pan and make sure to tip the pan around to allow it to coat the sides and bottom of the pan. 

  7. Pour the egg mixture into the pan over the vegetables, sprinkle half of the arugula on top and place in the oven. Do not forget to turn off the stove top!

  8. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the center is set. Garnish with the rest of the arugula and any fresh herbs you may have on hand.

  9. Cut into wedges and store for easy meals throughout the week!
