Healthy Frittata. A quick and basic frittata recipe that makes the perfect quick breakfast, dinner, or brunch centerpiece.

I looooove breakfast food. I also love any excuse possible to to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – and this frittata is just that! When I was a little kid, breakfast for dinner night was my absolute favorite. I loved any chance I could to eat breakfast multiple times in a day. Waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, or french toast at 6pm?? Sign. Me. Up.

This frittata is not only delicious, but also an amazingly fast and healthy recipe. It’s perfect for busy weeknights or great to make as a part of a brunch spread. It also boasts just 120 calories, 3 grams of carbs, but has 9 grams of protein per slice!

It makes a great breakfast paired with berries and toast, a bright lunch aside freshly dressed greens, or a wonderful way to enjoy a massive breakfast spread for dinner! Furthermore, for vegetarians or for those who occasionally dabble in Meatless Monday, egg dinners are a great way to still get in adequate protein without using meat.
