Potato and Vegetable Fritatta

2 T olive oil
2 medium red potatoes, shredded
1 1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
6 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste


In a large non-stick skillet that is oven safe, cook potatoes in oil on medium high. If you like them crispy, let them stay on one side until you start to see some brown around the edges. Flip over the potatoes to brown the other side. Place a lid or aluminum foil over the pan to allow the potatoes to cook through.

Add the fresh spinach in a layer over the top of the potatoes.

Add the tomatoes.

In a large bowl or glass measuring cup, scramble eggs and then pour over the top of the potatoes and vegetables.

Cook an additional 4-5 minutes on top of the stove on medium heat. Then place pan in oven under the broiler for 8-10 minutes to allow egg to cook thoroughly on the top.

You can add substitute or add any vegetables you like-- mushrooms, bell pepper, onion.

Whole30 Committed

In October, on the recommendation of my new doctor (shout out to Dr. Taylor- love her), I completed the Whole30 eating plan. I dove in and completed the 30 days with 100% commitment. Not one cheat; not even a glass of wine (sigh). I slept better. I had a clear mind. I lost 23 pounds. So why did I go off it, I keep asking myself. Well, there was a business trip to San Antonio, followed by Thanksgiving weekend at the beach with the kids, followed by all those other days of celebration between Thanksgiving and today.

But today is January 2nd and I just signed on for another 30 days. There is a group at my work doing the 30 days along with a challenge on the Whole30 website. So, I thought I'd make my attempt at adding some new recipes to my blog that are Whole30 compliant.  Won't you join me?

I'll highlight some recipes already on my blog that meet the program and start adding a few more as we go along. Want to know more about the program? Click on the link above or go out and buy this book. I hope you have as much success as I did.
