What better way to start your Sunday off than with a filling, healthy frittata?
I’ll never get bored of making frittatas with spiralized veggies. There are so many different flavor combinations, and veggie noodles are such a great way of sneaking veggies into your day, first-thing in the morning!
This frittata is packed with protein – chicken sausage, eggs, and peas. You can’t get more protein packed than that!
The savory russet potatoes give this frittata the necessary hash brown or home fry salty flavor and the peas give that perfect earthy balance. It really is an all-in-one meal, and frittatas are meal-prep friendly. I’ve been known to have “breakfast for dinner” and eat leftover frittata. Serve it with some salad and avocado and it becomes a new meal.
This weekend is full of brunches, so I couldn’t make myself anything I wanted, but I’m looking forward to being home next weekend. I want to crack open some of these cookbooks that I’ve been piling up – especially the Glow Pops. I NEED to make one!
A while ago, I heard about the mantra “schedule your priorities, don’t prioritize your schedule” and I did that so well for a long time. I’ve fallen off the wagon, and I’ve found that my to-do lists aren’t empowering me the way they used to. I’m committing today to getting back to scheduling my priorities.
Basically, if you “prioritize your schedule” you’re going to naturally put at the top what takes the least amount of effort, concentration, and time. You want that instant gratification, it’s only natural – it feels good to check off a box! But what happens? All the big projects that could help you advance at your job or (if you’re an entrepreneur) help your business, fall to the wayside. They don’t get done and they’re just tacked onto the bottom of your next day’s to-do.
There are a few larger projects that I am committing to RIGHT NOW to scheduling for the beginning of the week. Even though you may not feel as accomplished, because they take longer than a day to complete, just starting them is the first step!
Hope everyone has a productive, happy, and healthy Sunday!
