I'm Having a Healthy New Year With Blue Menu in My Frittata #Shop

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

It’s January so that must mean it’s time to start thinking about eating better and getting more active. It’s not that I don’t think about those things all year-long, but with the New Year comes more motivation to get healthy. I have always focused on eating less and moving more, but eating less of the right foods is key. Swapping out high fat, high sodium foods for ones that are better options and eating more veggies plus eating more real foods is the route I leaning towards at the moment. For example in my Sweet and Spicy Chili swapping out regular canned tomatoes for PC Blue Menu No Salt Added Diced Tomatoes means less sodium. A small step, but a step in the right direction.

With a busy family I need healthy options that are quick and easy to prepare but that are easy on the pocket-book. That’s why when I turn to prepared foods I try to pick from the Blue Menu line, like the PC Blue Menu Italian Lasagna that is available at the Lowblaws family of grocery stores. If I am going for convenience I can at least make smarter choices. With their blue packaging they are easy to spot on the shelves and they are  right next to the regular items. I have no excuse not to grab the healthier option

When I was asked as part of this #CollectiveBias shop to show you how I am making healthier choices this year, I decided to try something that I have been hearing lots about, but hadn’t tried yet – a frittata. A frittata can include pretty much anything you want and it’s really easy to pack it full of nutrients. Best of all put everything together in an oven safe pan and it’s a one dish meal that is ready in no time. If you are in a real hurry, when it’s done wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla with some lettuce and you have a hot, filling, and healthy meal that will carry you through until morning.

Veggie Fritatta

What you need:

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup onions
  • 1.3 cup tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup red pepper (any colour will do)
  • 3 frozen spinach cubes or a handful of fresh baby spinach (washed)
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • PC Blue Menu Tex-Mex light shredded cheese to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F

Melt butter in heavy frying pan over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms and saute until they start to soften up, then add in spinach and peppers and tomatoes and cook until soft/limp. Add salt and pepper to taste. While veggies are cooking prepare your eggs by beating together eggs and milk until well combined and no yolks remain. Pour egg mixture over veggies and transfer pan to the preheated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a knife pushed into center comes away clean. Top with Tex-Mex cheese, not too much, and put back in the over for 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted.

If your pan isn’t oven safe spray a baking dish (9×9) and transfer vegetables into it. Pour eggs over top of veggies and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a knife pushed into center comes away clean. Top with Tex-Mex cheese, not too much, and put back in the oven for 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted.

Serve with a side salad and enjoy!
