Egg White Frittata Recipe

The Low-Calorie, High-Protein Breakfast Lea Michele Loves

For her daily diet, actress and singer Lea Michele understands the importance of keeping meals fresh, simple, and energizing. And when it comes to breakfast, she's all about this fluffy and produce-packed frittata. Classic Mediterranean ingredients like peppers, onion, and spinach bring texture, flavor, and nutrition to the dish, while egg whites and feta provide over 20 grams of protein. This low-calorie frittata is quick enough to come together on a weekday morning but elegant enough to serve to friends at a special weekend brunch.

If you're cooking this recipe as part of the Get Fit 2015 meal plan, serve with one toasted whole wheat english muffin or one slice whole wheat bread.
