Happy Mother’s Day! Today we made mini frittatas with some whole grain toast and seitan bacon. Frittatas are super easy to make and very filling. All of the ingredients (except the seitan bacon) are from the farmers’ market.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 large eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2-3 leaves of kale, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 3-4 tops of shiitake mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Whole grain bread slices, toasted

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Lightly brush 6 muffin cups with 1 tsp olive oil.
  3. In a small skillet, heat 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Add kale, spring onions, and mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes, or until the greens are completely wilted.
  4. Evenly spoon the veggies into the muffin cups and evenly top with cheese.
  5. Whisk the eggs and the milk together. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Pour the eggs into the muffin cups until they are mostly filled. Bake for 20-22 minutes until center has set and the tops are brown.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
