Veggie Egg Frittata

IMG_0599I’m all about those breakfast foods. Waffles, pancakes, oatmeal, cereal bowls, eggs, etc. You name it ALL – I love it! I got a Lodge Cast Iron from a friend for Christmas but I never used it until now. I decided to make a frittata this morning for the first time. I’m trying to make a bigger variety of egg dishes instead of just omelets and scrambles. Eggs are such a versatile ingredient! Btw, is it omelet or omelette? LOL I’m not sure – I’ll stick with omelet.

Some days, I crave sweet – others days, savory. This morning was definitely a savory morning! I had a bunch of groceries delivered the beginning of this week from Milk and Egg so I was stocked up with all the freshest produce! I love the colors in this dish. Red, green yellow, orange and yellow. So pretty!


Anyways, a little talk about how work has been. It’s been good!! I’m slowly getting use to how everything is ran. I’m learning about my patients more. Everyday at work is something I can only prepare for to a certain extent. Everyday is so different – depending on how my patients react. It gets hard at times – but I find a lot of joy working in a eating disorder treatment center. It’s such a blessing. It’s amazing seeing people reach out for help and going through treatment. Some people take longer than others but in the end – they’re going through treatment to recover and that’s what matters most. Each person is different and on their own path. A path to recovery ❤
