Southwest Frittata

Updated: Mar 15

This egg casserole has so many delicious flavors, it's like a breakfast burrito on your plate minus the tortilla.


You guys! I can't even begin to explain how unbelievably good this recipe is. I got it from Danielle Walker's "Against all Grain, Meals Made Simple" recipe book and had to share it with you. You can purchase her book here.

The most delicious & simple frittatta i've ever had! Thank you! –Becky, TSNC Subscriber

I will say this one will require a little bit more work than most of the other recipes I've shared, but it is so worth it! Not only for the flavor, but the convenience it will provide you throughout the week. This is that perfect meal prep dish that you can save leftovers in individual sandwich baggies and freeze for an on-the-go morning.

 

Ingredient Benefits


Cilantro is a recovery powerhouse food!!! It's can help with anxiety, act as a natural pain killer, lower blood sugar levels, helps with stress, act as an anti-inflammatory, and aids in detox.



Spinach is one of the most alkaline foods you can eat. It is very common for those recovering from AUD (alcohol use disorder) to have bodies that are far too acidic. When our body is too acidic, it then causes us to struggle with insulin sensitivity. Which causes too much insulin to be produced. In turn, causing our bodies to convert every calorie into fat. Including plenty of spinach in your recovery diet will definitely assist with getting your body back in balance.


Zucchini is low in calories and high in vision-boosting vitamin A and heart-friendly potassium. You will want to make sure to leave the skins on as well, as they are loaded with nutrients. This summer squash is going to help with lowering cholesterol, vision, and immunity. You need all the immunity-boosting nutrients you can get in recovery, as your body is very malnourished.
