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!

  2. There are actually remarkable developments on the design of the website, I definitely enjoy that! My own is regarding mobdro for ipad and certainly, there are plenty of things to be done, I’m yet still a novice in web page design. Thanks!

  3. Respectfully, I think the intent was to suggest that female practitioners play to their strengths, rather than "hey, little lady, this here jewelled dagger is the perfect self-defense weapon for a medieval girl." Any imputed bias is likely down to Mr. Clements' writing, rather than bias.As an ARMA member, I have trained/sparred with women who can gut me like a trout, so any chauvinism goes quickly by the wayside. Anyone who approaches study with integrity and martial spirit is welcome. We're a small enough community that turning away motivated students is foolish.Regards,SADShooter

  4. I just wanted to let Klei know that I am thoroughly impressed with “Mark of the Ninja”. Hopefully a sequel is already in the pipeline. With more unlockables, levels and a longer/more indepth narrative, you could make the leap to disc based games. Also: are there any plans for DLC/expansions?

Si l’équipement n’était pas adéquat dans l’hôpital, le médecin n’est pas responsable.Exact, c’est la faute du systeme canadien, alors comment un gars peut actionner le systeme de santé canadien, tu crois qu’il va actionner le gouvernement canadien?

  6. The man is proving to be more fascinating than I had anticipated — I’d always gotten the sense that he was rather humorless and cold. I think you’re right about the Nazis taking Freud’s comments at face value. How could men so sure of themselves imagine a Jew would have the nerve to mock them?

  7. James, I wouldn’t say you’re going at this ass-backwards. There really are no rules; as long as you understand what you’re doing. I’ve had times where I squatted after deadlifting. Just pay attention and maybe do a few light sets of squats as a general warm-up before the deadlift.

  8. Claudia, das ist sooooo lieb von Dir… Du weißt, ich lerne tagtäglich von Dir und Deinen Kreationen und mal ab davon, dass ich Dich als super lieben Menschen im I-Net kennengelernt habe, freut es mich mächtig, dass Du immer wieder bereit bist, Dein Wissen mit Anderen zu teilen, was nicht immer selbstverständlich ist. Vielen lieben Dank für die Mühe, die Du Dir gemacht hast – auf meine Wunschliste kommen nun ein Wassertankpinsel und Twinklings… xox

  9. Thanks for sharing these thoughts! It feels so similar to me, all of it as we put our first kid in public school. BUT we’re “at home in America” so different from your place. Still, the faith challenge is the same, to trust… Praying you keep trusting and Kai does as well!

  10. cảm ơn bạn rất nhiều. ngày mai tôi kiểm tra môn Thuếnên tôi rất vui khi đọc được tài liệu tham khảo này.nó rất cần thiết với tôi và cũng như các bạn đang học Thuế nói chung. Một lần nữa cảm ơn bạn!

  11. I not to mention my buddies were actually analyzing the good suggestions from your web page and then then came up with a horrible suspicion I never thanked the web site owner for those strategies. All of the young men had been certainly joyful to see them and have in effect honestly been loving those things. Thank you for really being quite thoughtful and for deciding on this sort of very good themes millions of individuals are really desirous to discover. My very own sincere apologies for not saying thanks to sooner.

  12. I purchased your amazon review site blueprint (version 2) before, I started to implement n get result for ‘easy ranked’ as you said, just 1 week n most of my keyword get on page 2!I interested also on this newbie guide, do I have to pay again? Just wanna make sure I’ve done the amazon blueprint properly, especially about social integration n want to know about amazon new product feed.Thanks a lot sir!

  13. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  14. I know the hot water in our old house didn’t work when the power went out because despite the fact that it was (tankless) gas, the thermostat ran on electricity. It wouldn’t work without the thermostat. DOH! I probably would have bought some disposables just in case, or at least some disposable inserts I could use and hand wash the covers. Haven’t been in this house long enough to know if the hot water works here when the power is out.

  15. Emmy Z: Ja, stuga är trots allt ett stycke hantverk!annasofiaelin: Som lärare? Coolt, det skulle man haft :)Sebastian: Ser fram emot det!Marcus Hansson: MÃ¥nga gamla godingar, skönt att se! Men OPuerto Rico som webbspel?! OMG, hur kunde jag missa det? Äääälskar Puerto Rico! 😀
