Greek Style Frittata

Posted May 18 2009 11:39pm

Good Afternoon:

I hope everyone has had a good Monday Morning so far. The weather is absolutely amazing here today. It was a great day to teach Boot Camp, the weather was in the 70's with a nice breeze.

I got a short run in not as much as I would have liked but I ended up chatting at drop off so burned a few minutes of workout time. I will make it up later today. After working I came home and made myself my new favorite Green Vibrance Smoothie. These are so good! The Green Vibrance really gives me a boost and I feel like I am really nourishing my body.

Green Vibrance Smoothie

1 packet Green Vibrance-- 45 calories
1 scoop Muscle Milk Vanilla Cream Protein Powder- 95 calories
1/4 cup Organic Nonfat Plain Yogurt- 30 calories
1/2 cup of Trop50 Orange Juice- 25 calories
1/2 cup of water- 0 calories
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries- 50 calories

So I was flipping through the new issue of Women's Health Magazine and came across a quick recipe for a Greek-Style Frittata that looked amazing. So I whipped it up for lunch and it was Awesome! My husband was even impressed. I paired my piece with 1/2 a grapefruit sprinkled with cinnamon. Yum!

Greek Style Frittata

2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 1/2 cup frozen diced potatoes, onions and peppers
4 large eggs
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup sliced grape tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup nonfat milk
1 tsp oregano

Preheat broiler on low. Meanwhile, heat a medium sized skillet over low. Add spinach and cover until leaves have barely wilted- about a minute. Place in a small bowl and set aside.

Add olive oil to cleaned skillet and heat over medium. Add potato-vegetable mixture, cover and cook, turning occasionally, until potatoes are tender but firm. 5-7 minutes.

In a medium bowl, scramble eggs and milk. Add spinach, cheese,tomatoes, oregano and salt and pepper to taste.

Spray an 8-10 inch ovenproof skillet with cooking spray and place over low heat. Cover bottom with potatoes and pour egg mixture on top. Cook until eggs set, about 10 minutes.

Place skillet under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to finish cooking top of frittata.

Makes 4 servings with 206 calories per slice, 13 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein.

I am on track so far today. I have a light snack planned out and a couple things in mind for dinner but not sure which way I will go and last but not least possibly a couple pieces of See's Candy for a treat!

I am off in search of Hula Hoops. I really think they would be great for my Kids In Motion Classes and are actually great exercise so would mind having some for my house as well!
