It's also a great way to use leftover vegetables, cheese, sausages or bacon. It makes 2 servings but you can always double or triple the batch and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days. This recipe is made with feta cheese, fresh herbs and tomatoes. What are your favourite frittata toppings? :-)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I subbed goat cheese and used chives. Used 8 eggs and it made 4 nice servings. This was fantastic! I wish I could post a photo!

Thank you Pamela! I'll have a look and see how we can implement photo sharing 😊

I would try this recipe using eggs whites
and adding only 2 whole eggs. Maybe some
low-fat cheese yum! 😊

Will mozzarella work?

Absolutely! Both fresh mozzarella and even the "pizza-style" low-moisture mozzarella will be great in this recipe.
