Protein-Packed Veggie Frittata

Protein-Packed Veggie Frittata

The ideal breakfast is full of protein that will keep you full throughout the morning

Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNS

Let’s face it: Eating a healthy breakfast is important. And it’s not just because it’s “the most important meal of the day.” When you start your day with processed carbs and sugars (all the stuff that’s found in pastries, fancy coffee drinks and most store-bought cereals), you’re sending your blood sugar on a never-ending roller coaster that will have you reaching for a candy bar in just a few hours.

The ideal breakfast is full of protein that will keep you full throughout the morning, as well as nutrient-rich veggies that will keep energy high and serve as natural metabolism boosters. This easy-to-prepare frittata has the best of both worlds, and even better is the addition of bone broth protein.

You’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard about the tremendous health benefits of bone broth, but, for many people, it’s just not always convenient to make their own from scratch. My Bone Broth Protein powder eliminates this need by transforming gut-boosting bone broth into a convenient protein powder. It works in smoothies, desserts, baked goods or anywhere else you need a healthy protein-boost—like in this super-easy frittata recipe.

Eating seasonally is a great way to add delicious, fresh vegetables and fruits into your diet. And the list of spring vegetables includes so many tasty and healthy options that you'll never get bored. But if you're not sure just what to cook with your seasonal produce, this spring vegetable frittata is a great place to start. Asparagus and chopped leeks, along with herbs like dillweed and thyme, add plenty of nutrition and flavor to this hearty egg-based dish.

Asparagus is high in potassium, and it's a high-nutrient, low-calorie addition to this frittata. The recipe also calls for four cups of fresh spinach, which comes out to one cup in each frittata serving. That'll give you a hefty dose of calcium and magnesium, as well as a little fiber. Combined with the protein of the eggs—you'll get two per frittata serving—this is one dish that will keep you full and give you plenty of energy. Dig in!
