Healthy Meal - Frittata, Salad & Fresh Strawberries

This is what a healthy meal looks like to me!  3/4 of the plate consists of fruits and veggies and 1/4 is protein also packed with more veggies!

Last night I made a frittata with shredded carrots and zucchini, a walnut-salad with fig balsamic dressing and fresh organic strawberries.  The strawberries were so sweet that honey was not required.  It was a nice evening to eat out on the back porch.

My tip is to make your meals with fresh, organic, colorful ingredients.  Leave the boxed, over-processed foods on the shelf at the's not needed in this recipe.

Farm Fresh Confetti Frittata

Colorful, Tasty, Healthy Meal

8 eggs
1/4 cup whole milk
1 zucchini, grated
1 carrot, peeled and grated
1 cup cheese, shredded
2 T fresh basil, chopped

salt and pepper to taste
1 T real butter
1/4 cup red pepper, small dice
1/4 cup onion, small dice

1/4 cup shredded cheese, to sprinkle on top just before broiling
chopped cilantro or parley to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, zucchini, carrot, cheese, basil and S&P.  Set aside.
  3. In a 10" oven-proof skillet heat butter over medium to medium-high heat.  Add red pepper and onion and saute until soft and translucent.
  4. Add egg mixture and gently stir with a wooden spoon until eggs are almost set (still jiggly).  Top with remaining cheese and place in the oven under the broiler for 5 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.  With a hot pad, remove from oven and let set for a few minutes before serving.  Cut like a pie and serve warm.  Sprinkle top with cilantro or parsley.

Serves 4-6.
