Skinny Frittata Florentine

Skinny Frittata Florentine

With a family as large as ours, we’ve been having to utilize most hours of the day(s) for time with our families, which not only leads to travel but allows me to incorporate my favorite meal and dish into holiday plans, too: breakfast/brunch frittatas😊. The beauty of a frittata is that you can sneak in all of the things that might be hard to find on the table otherwise (especially in the south) and it still be a hit. Also, can confirm you can break out a frittata any time of day and it will still be a welcomed dish – jsyk.

Lean meat, poultry, fish, and eggs are the best protein options for heart-healthy meals. Eggs are a rich source of dietary cholesterol, but they also contain a variety of essential nutrients. Researchers have shown how moderate egg consumption can increase the amount of heart-healthy metabolites in the blood, publishing their results today in eLife. The findings suggest that eating up to one egg per day may help lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Getting the required amount of dietary nitrates a day to maintain or increase Nitric Oxide levels can be a challenge. Remember that as we age, our ability to produce Nitric Oxide steadily declines. There are times where eating kale, spinach, or cabbage just isn’t an option, and for that Berkeley Life has a Nitric Oxide Supplement that fills in the gaps we aren’t always able to take care of on our own.
