Spinach Asparagus Frittata

The healthiness of eggs has been the subject of a lot of debate over the years.


A part of that has been due to their high cholesterol. In fact, one egg contains 212 mg cholesterol, which is over half of the recommended daily intake. Cholesterol is a type of fat that’s found in your blood. Too much cholesterol can cause your blood vessels to clog. 


However, experts now say that eggs are extremely nutritious and considered a ‘superfood.’ Their high cholesterol content doesn’t necessarily raise your body’s cholesterol. According to one study, eggs don’t raise cholesterol at all in 70% of those tested. Plus, eggs contain a lot of essential proteins, vitamins, and minerals.


If you’re looking to add extra nutrition to your normal breakfast routine, look no further than a frittata. Similar to an omelet, it’s got plenty of eggs and allows you to add whatever you like. This recipe includes spinach and asparagus, so you can start your day with a healthy dose of greens.
