I need protein ideas besides hard-boiled eggs!

A: My fave morning protein foods besides eggs, are hemp seeds, yogurt, milk, almond and peanut butter, sprouted grain bread and almonds.



What is the average protein intake per day?

A: How much protein you should get per day varies. For an accurate number, try out the protein calculator on!



Does it matter if you drink skim milk or is it better to have a little bit of fat in there?

A: Both fat free and lowfat are great options. All milk has the same 9 essential nutrients including high-quality protein! Personally, at my house, I buy 2% milk since I have a 2-year-old who recently transitioned from whole milk.



What other items would you sub to get more flavor without added salt?

A: Herbs and spices, like a salt-free all-purpose seasoning. I use these a lot in my recipes.



I need one with the pourspout. What is that brand?

A: Anchor. Love mine!



Do they freeze?

A: Yes, they freeze great, for up to one month. Reheat in the microwave, about 60 seconds, from frozen.



Can you make those ahead of time?

A: The frittatas can be frozen or refrigerated after baking. For the full recipe, visit
