Baked Veggie Frittata

As part of my Whole 30 journey I worked really hard on prepping my food. Some mornings don’t go according to plans, or a kid might need some extra attention or sometime I forget to set our school alarm. Life happens! Instead of grabbing something that’s just going to slow me down in a couple of hours, I’ve made this protein packed veggie frittata for those busy mornings.It was so yummy that I made another batch when I went to see my friend, Natisse after she gave birth to her baby boy.

Nothing like newborns snuggles! The recipe is nothing new, but for some reason I was always nervous of making a fritatta and now that I know how simple it is I wanted to share it with my readers.

Ingredients

6 eggs, a splash of milk, handful of spinach, diced tomato, 1 cup diced mushrooms, salt and pepper.

Instructions

1. Spray olive oil in a 9×13 baking dish.

2. In a bowl whisk together eggs, milk, vegetables and seasonings.

3. Pour mixture into pan and bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes.

Chicken Fajita Bake

We were invited to a family potluck last week, but since I’m doing Whole 30 it makes eating out a bit tricky. I knew I had to have at least one thing that I (and my family) could eat, so I did a quick Pinterest search. I found a yummy dish that no one would even question. Since I tweaked it a bit I thought I would share my recipe. Ingredients

Farm Rich

Happy Super Bowl day!!

I don’t know much about football, but I love hanging out with friends AND eating. So when I get invited to Super Bowl party (or any party), I’m there!

To prep for the big day I got to test a few Farm Rich snacks.Our favorite Farm Rich Snack was the Mozzarella Bites.

Mozzarella Bites are crafted with authentic pizza crust and 100% real mozzarella cheese. Plus, they’re a great source of calcium and protein, and are microwaveable.

These soft little pillow cheese bites were amazing! My kiddos loved it too!

To kick it up a notch I made this cheesy snack even cheesier with a dip to go with it.All you need is a jar of your favorite pasta sauce and 1/2 a block of cream cheese. Microwave for 2 minutes and stir.Mmmm cheesy goodness!

Are you a Patriots fan or a Falcons fan?

Whatever team you are on I hope you enjoy the game and the all the snacks.Disclosure: This post was written as part of my participation in the BzzAgent program.
