Frittata is a quick and simple breakfast that can feed a whole family. Quality protein, healthy fats and fresh veggies will help to fill your belly and keep your blood sugar stable so your energy won't dip. Using organic, free range eggs or even better, finding a local farmer who raises free range hens will give you the most nutritious eggs. Animals are what they eat, and a free range chicken is pecking in the ground for insects in addition to grain they are fed. This increases the healthy fat ratios considerably in comparison to commercially raised chickens which aren't given the opportunity to forage for their own food. Eggs from chickens who find their own food are far more nutritious than those from caged birds.
Ingredients
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • ½ sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
