Fully Loaded Frittata

Eggs are easy.

If I’m ever stuck in a pinch and don’t know what to prepare, I cook eggs.

Not only are they delicious, but eggs are also rich in:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin B2
  • Vitamin B3
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Selenium
  • Choline
  • Zinc

Wow! It’s like they are totally a superfood.

No wonder Rocky Balboa used to drink them for breakfast!

If you are too young to know who Rocky is…. watch this 1-minute clip: https://youtu.be/HF86HqHzfDw

Me… I’d rather cook my eggs than drink them raw.

After you finish preparing this eggcellent recipe, sit down and watch the full Rocky movie for some awesome inspiration. It’s a classic!
