    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of AllWhites Egg Whites. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Soon enough you will get your fill of hard cooked eggs (Easter!), but today I want to invite you to join the frittata bandwagon.

    If you haven’t ever tried a frittata at home, you surely must because this is the most versatile dish you can imagine — quick, easy and healthy for a breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack or even brinner (breakfast for dinner!).

    It’s a quick bake of eggs or egg whites, flavored with aromatics and full of all sorts of vegetables, or maybe potatoes, or whatever you like. It’s not a fussy folded-over omelet, and not a messy scramble. It’s a baked Italian egg dish that can have a place at every American table.

    For today’s recipe, I’m partnering with AllWhites Egg Whites 100% liquid egg whites to show you a frittata recipe that can fuel your fitness goals and promote weight management as well as a healthy lifestyle. Of course, it does all this deliciously, because healthy food absolutely must taste fabulous. That’s a given, or no one will want to follow a healthy diet!

    What emerges is a true rainbow on the plate. We ate this for dinner with a simple cucumber salad and congratulated ourselves on a fit and fabulous meal.
