Veggie Frittata Bites

Recipe from The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure book

 

For us–and for our clients, one of the best things in the world is a quick breakfast that we can grab on-the-go -and that’s healthy and satiating!  One of the most popular recipes from our book, The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure, was this very recipe!  These are super easy to make in advance so you’ll have them ready to grab on your way out the door.

If you love these, you’ll also love this twist on them– these Mini Frittata Muffins created by our awesome friends Kimberly and Chris–who by now, you probably know them almost as well as you know us 🙂 from their great Pizzeria at Home and Buffalo Salmon to their Soy Ginger Salmon (and others!) and that we love sharing recipes with each other.

Get ready for these delish muffs to light up your morn! 😉 Enjoy!
