Ham & Cheese Fritata

10325509_10152511235252379_5709341501811487799_nEating food has become super stressful for me. Or at least I’ve allowed it to become that. I have so many friends that swear by their special food plans. Paleo, no carb, eating clean, raw diet, lactose free, corn free, sugar free, nut free and countless others. Plus I’m nursing, so my food has to include certain elements to  maintain and boost my milk supply. Sigh. It’s not the eating plans themselves that stress me out but the ‘you have to eat this way or you’re killing your body’ mentality. They can’t ALL be right. Right? So I talked with Jesus to see what my answer should be. Because it’s mainly just His advice that matters. And in the end I came to the conclusion that we all have different bodies that can’t handle different things. Yes, be smart in eating. Not a lot of sugars (have them come mostly from fruit), I’m nursing so whole grains are OK. Milk in moderation. And no processed foods. But the main breakthrough was the fear factor. So many plans use fear as they give you information. And I, personally, was allowing that fear to take root. So after dealing and uprooting those things, I chose rethink what we eat.

And it’s not a huge change. We eat mostly clean with a sweet treat to end the day with. However, breakfasts have been mostly sweet carbs. Cereal, pancakes or toast. See, we have only 20 minutes max for us to eat in the mornings. Couple that with two super slow eaters and a time consuming healthy breakfast is way out the window. I went to Pinterest and saw many great ideas. This being the first: Fritatas. I made it a couple days ago and all I have to do is heat it up! We’ve been eating it for breakfast or lunch for days and it’s great. It allows me to have something healthy for myself and eventually for the girls that’s fast for school mornings. That’s the kill zone I was aiming for. Plus it’s made breakfast different, and different is good.

This fritata in particular is a ham and cheese, along with bell peppers, red onion and fresh basil. It turned out so great!!! Travis and I loved LOVED it however the girls wouldn’t eat it because so much of it was green- a mindset we’re fighting these days. At least they tried it. Baby steps. But I’m happy to make a broccoli and ham/cheese which the girls should be able to choke down. :/

I didn’t follow any recipe but threw it together so this recipe will be totally based off me guessing the amounts. So if you like more cheese, no milk or whatever-please feel free to tweak it to your liking, it’s a forgiving recipe.

Ham & Cheese Fritatas

8 eggs

1 small package of pre-shredded cheese (or about 1C. I used mozzarella cause that’s just what I had)

1 med. red bell pepper

1 med. green pepper

1 small red onion (I used it for color but a yellow would work great too. Adds the sweetness)

2-3 cloves of garlic ( I actually used garlic powder but real cloves would be way better)

dash of pepper and salt

1/3 C milk

Handful of fresh basil leaves cut julienne style

Ham ( I used ham sliced by our ‘behind the meat counter person’ and used 4-5 slices. Cut julienne style)

Greased pan ( I used coconut oil but Olive oil would work great too)

Instructions: Stir fry onion and garlic until soft. Cut meat and vegetables to similar sizes. Put onion and garlic in large bowl and mix all ingredients together. Poor mixture in greased pan. Cook at 155’C for about 20-30 min or until top is cooked and slightly browned. Hope you enjoy this! It’s fast, crazy easy and healthy. Perfect!

  1. Thanks for the feedback. It is for a 40 hour week. I will read the engagement terms carefully. So glad I was raised in a home with depression era values as minimal or no debt makes for an incredible nights rest. Unless your HHI is north of $300k, you would be a fool not to be saving aggressively. So no designer cloths, cars or electronic gadgets and try storytime at the local library for child entertainment. Once one realizes all the crap one thinks one needs is just a short term anesthetic, your life will be a lot better.

  2. sull’indice è difficile che l’indicatore sbagli del tutto un segnale, su questo ha già dato comunque 450-500 pti, non pochi, venerdì prima della discesa, quindi o si gira subito domani xchè tutto si è già esaurito lassù e alza quel livello di oggi oppure lo mantiene aperto… allora mi aspetto andamento laterale, ma ampio, lento (non di volatilità intra) e con ritorni su 14500

  3. De mon côté j’ai trouvé ce film ennuyeux au possible. Je n’avais pas lu le livre donc je ne peut pas comparer (enfin j’ai pu comparer vite fait avec une BD adaptée du livre que j’ai chez moi), mais d’un point de vue cinématographique l’intérêt frise le néant. En 2012 on peut encore être impressionné par ces décors num…

  4. Your problem is that you are willfully ignorant of the history of Bimota. Before you write another post, at least “wiki” it so that you are not showing your ass in public. Perhaps you will come to the realization that PEOPLE and PASSION are what build great motorcycles, not factories. Just because the bikes aren’t sold at your local WalMart does nothing to diminish one of the greatest brands of all time. — JT

  5. The ECHL is stuck when it comes to logos. See: Aces, Condors, Express, Everblades, Eagles, Cyclones, Gladiators, Steelheads, Thunder, Walleye, Titans, Grizzlies, Sting Rays, Reign and now the Solar Bears. A name bar and a logo climbing over it, under it, standing behind it. I’m not kidding there is a creative block in that league.

  6. Oh I love this one Yvonne, such depth to the background (aren't those PPs great?)and I love all the elements you've added to go with the gorgeous vintage image.Thanks for linking to the PanPastel UK Challenge blog.luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

  7. Wow, this precisely cleared some things up. One essay i am having difficulties with is a definition for an “who we are” The teacher says that we will have to dig deep into ourselves and see what we really are. But I think it would be more fittingto use thesis writing service.

  9. A Macaron eddig egyetlen helyen nem közepes, az pedig a Zazzi Solymáron. Mi igazi rajongókká váltunk a férjemmel, majd’ minden hétvégén felkerekedünk érte. Ugyanitt – ha már francia vizekre eveztünk – szintén függÅ‘vé tevÅ‘ madleines-t is lehet szerezni, nekem a narancsvirág-olajos ízlett a legjobban – de ez nem mindig van. Mindenesetre örülök, hogy ide is felkerült a financier, mert abból igazán jót még csak a franciáknál sikerült enni:-)

  10. I just stumbled upon this blog as you do and was really taken in by your writing style but also glad to read all your posts about 105 degrees. We are planning to visit the States in 2011 and I have been looking for the best raw chef course. Seeing your posts are helping me to decide.

  11. Les chefs d’état qui doivent leur élection aux loges. Cette posture contamine dangereusement l’Afrique. Celle-ci n’a besoin ni des sectes, ni des gays, pour se développer. Il y a une conspiration de ces déviances, armée de violence, qui empêche l’expression démocratique sur ce continent. La confrontation mondiale est un choc de valeurs dont certains veulent en imposer aux autres.

  12. You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually one thing which I think I might never understand. It seems too complicated and very huge for me. I’m having a look forward on your next submit, I will attempt to get the hang of it!

  13. I hear you Alex, the ICC should ban all players who appeal for the wicket of a batsmen who is not out. If the batsmen is not out, and you appealed, you are obviously a cheat.And if the ICC do not ban them, they should also be forced to gaze lovingly at Jacques apply Sanex to his armpit

  15. A decisão que a DC tomou no inicio em demitir a Gail Simone já era estranha, agora se tornou ainda mais estranha voltando atrás, talvez tenha sido realmente a repercussão. E a DC achou que era uma escritora que tinha certo número de admiradores que não poderiam ser ignorados nas vendas do título.

  16. Needed to draft you this bit of remark so as to thank you yet again for the extraordinary advice you have discussed in this article.

  17. Those names on your Declaration of Independence are the same names still to be found in the small towns and villages of old England. We have all but surrendered our freedoms to those at home and in Europe who believe in the divine right of the bureaucrat and politician.Some of us still hope that in Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas and other like states there is still a place for free men. I hope we are not entirely wrong.

  18. @psih: These are both known issues. PHPStorm uses a different engine for undefined variables now and there are some issues. They will probably be fixed in the next EAP.The issue with the typing lag is known, too, though I currently can’t find the appropriate Bug ID for that…
