Spinach Artichoke Frittata

Spinach Artichoke Frittata

This recipe was hatched when I had more eggs than I knew what to do with! Haha, bad pun, I know. I’m a part of an awesome egg CSA from Ley Creek Farm in Fulton, NY, so I get a dozen farm fresh eggs each week. I literally walk past the chickens as I pick them up. It’s really cool knowing egg-zactly where my food comes from… ok, I’ll stop with the puns :P But anyways, I had a TON of eggs still left to use one week, so I decided to make a frittata. I am a BIG FAN of goat cheese and recently learned some amazing nutritional benefits of both spinach and artichokes, so I threw all of these great ingredients together to create this frittata! A frittata is basically a quiche without the crust. And I actually ended up having this (and the leftovers!) for dinner a few nights that week. The following week, I remade the dish the following week for a brunch with my girlfriends that I was hosting. It’s basically delicious any time of day!

"Fried" Chicken

"Fried" Chicken

I absolutely love using my Air Fryer. It really, truly makes things tastes fried, even though there is no oil in the fryer. Craziness. I have always liked fried chicken… I used to love this one fried chicken Kid Cuisine freezer dinner as a kid. My parents would get us those whenever we had a babysitter. This is a lot healthier though, haha. But it tastes JUST as good, if not better. The Old Bay makes this chicken super tasty. And then your partner can make “old bae” jokes. So fun.

This versatile broccoli dish can be a snack or a side and it’s easy to meal prep for the week. I love how the florets get all crispy after they’re roasted - it’s kind of like having potato chips!

My secret weapon for fat loss is, and always has been, meal prep. If I'm crunched for time or feeling lazy, my food is right there, ready to reheat for lunch or dinner. And then I have no excuse to stray from my meal plan! I have always loved Buffalo chicken (especially since so much of my family is from Buffalo, NY!). And I am so excited that this is an Instant Pot recipe - it cuts down on my weekend meal prep time like crazy! If you're looking to reduce your carbs even more, you could swap out cauliflower rice.
