From Kara, Breakfast in my mind, is the most important part of the day. It’s a meal of purpose, of setting yourself up for success throughout the day, and honoring your body in a way that is mindful and intentional. I love breakfast because it requires me to slow down, say yes to myself, and begin a day with the thought that I am worth nourishing and giving time and space to.
One of my favorite ways to begin a day is breakfast with friends. Meals together are such a time of celebration and connection, and this breakfast frittata is a healthy and satisfying way to begin your day with friends you love. Hosting guests for breakfast can sometimes be daunting, but this easy and nutritious frittata is a simple recipe that will allow you to create a delightful dish, and still fully enjoy your morning with friends.
Aside from their ease in preparation, frittatas are also great because they’re so versatile! I love making mine with kale, squash, tomatoes, and broccoli, but you can use any ingredients you’d like to accommodate any palate and fill you with protein to sustain your day.
