Ingredients

Frittata’s are a super fun way to get more veggies into your diet, and of course, eggs! They are also a great edition to your weekly meal prep. If you’re a big fan of onions, then you’ll love leeks, too! They belong to the same family as onions and garlic so they have similar health promoting benefits. Leeks can help support heart health and are cancer fighting with their antioxidants.
