Trouble With Toast

Frittatastic! | May 28, 2009

Contrary to popular belief, you CAN eat healthy without a regimen OR a recipe.  They key is undergoing a kitchen makeover–and not the kind that involves new cabinets and upgraded appliances.

If you keep fresh, healthy foods in your refrigerator and pantry, you will have no choice but to concoct fresh, healthy meals.  For example, with minimal creativity and ingredients I already had on hand, I threw together this roasted veggie and goat cheese fritatta. 

First, I cut the beets, turnips, and onions into bite-sized pieces, and then I tossed them in a shallow baking dish with some olive oil and kosher salt.  I put them in a 450 degree oven for about 30 minutes or so, and then I threw them in a deep, nonstick skillet over medium heat.  I poured almost an entire small carton of Egg Beaters (the equivalent of about 7-8 eggs) into the skillet and then scattered some chunks of goat cheese on top.  I let the frittata cook until it was just about set, lifting up one side every so often to let uncooked portions touch the heat.  Then, I placed the whole skillet (make sure it is oven-safe) under a broiler set to high.  The result?  A golden brown frittata with lots of wholesome, tasty goodness inside.

Shockingly, frittata leftovers reheat very well–just nuke them for about 30 seconds to take the chill off, then place them under a broiler until they just start to brown again.

What are your foolproof suggestions for eating healthy on the fly?
