Description:
Eggs! They are one of the more inexpensive and impressive forms of protein, containing 9 essential amino acids. There are obvious parts of an egg: the white and the yolk. The yolk is the egg's major source of vitamins and minerals, but also fat and cholesterol. However, the yolk also contains an enzyme that helps us digest cholesterol. The white is made mainly of protein. To get the health benefits without excessive fat, eat one yolk per thee whites!
*Healthy Fact!*Naturally raised free run chickens have dark rich yellow yolks whereas the typical factory farmed egg is pale in colour. The darker the yolk, the more vitamin dense it is. This is because of the high quality suitable food the chickens eat and the fact that they are living in a cruelty free environment.


Ingredients:
10 organic free range eggs
1/2 cup organic milk
1/4 cup organic parsley, fresh, minced
1 tsp organic basil, dried
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups organic broccoli, cooked, chopped
1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes
2 tbsp cooking oil


Directions:
In a small bowl, soak dried tomatoes in very hot water until softened, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and chop.
In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, parsley, basil, salt and pepper until just blended. Stir in tomatoes and broccoli.

Heat oil in a 10-inch (25 cm) ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture. Cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set but still moist on the surface, about 10 to 15 minutes, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to run to bottom of skillet.
Sprinkle top with cheese. Place under broiler until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes.
Frittata may be served hot, warm or cold. Cut into wedges to serve.

Wellness Tip
Fat Content Can Be Misleading
When you see a product in the grocery store labeled 98% fat free, don't be fooled. According to the Food & Drug Administration, that percentage refers to the percentage of fat by weight, not by calories. For example, a slice of 89% fat free deli meat means that only 11% of the weight of the product is fat. Although this sounds low, over 50% of the calories may come from fat -- making it a high-fat choice as far as your body is concerned! When selecting low fat foods, ignore the advertising hype; look for grams of fat or the percent Daily Value for fat on the nutrition label.
