Spinach & Potato Frittata Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced potato (yellow fingerling)
  • heaping 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions + 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • fresh salt  & pepper

Directions

  • preheat oven to 375F
  • heat ghee over medium heat in an oven-proof skillet (if you don’t have one, just transfer to a baking dish before the last step)
  • saute scallions + garlic for 2 minutes
  • add potatoes, large pinch of salt, small pinch of pepper, and cook until potatoes are cooked through, stirring frequently (~8 minutes)
  • add spinach, cook and stir for 1 minute
  • add eggs, mix together, turn off heat
  • sprinkle cheese then remaining 1T scallions on top
  • bake in the oven until eggs are set and top is slightly browned (~30 minutes)

Serves 3-4. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 45 minutes.

Cook’s note: you can serve this with ketchup, salsa, guacamole, hummus, or any other sauce you like. You can also make these into individual frittatas using muffin tins (cook for just ~20 minutes instead); serve on a muffin or bagel as a breakfast sandwich. For an appetizer use mini muffin tins (~15 minutes).

ZWOW!

Zuzana is back. I used to do her workouts when she was on Bodyrock but they got a new girl (who is not as classy as Zuzka).

She has been back for a few weeks but I only just got around to doing one of her workouts tonight. This workout was:

  • Split squat jumps (in lunge position, jump up and down X times on one leg; then switch to other side)
  • Single leg lunges with back foot on a chair (X times on one leg; then switch to the other side)
  • Superman pushups (do a pushup, but come down to the floor and do a superman, then another pushup, floor, superman, etc…)
  • Skaters

It was a pyramid scheme where you go through the rounds and do 5 reps, then 10, then 15, then 10, and finally 5 again. I just did it along with Zuzana and if I finished ahead of her I did jumping jacks. This workout took me about 18.5 minutes.

Here is me afterwards, sweaty face and all:

I definitely would like to build up some more tone, but I have stayed in shape from all the yoga. I can do pushups better than ever before.

And here is how I fueled up afterwards:

Roasted (no oil) kabocha and butternut squash. I stuck them in the oven at 475F right before I started the workout and they were ready 25 minutes later. I snapped the pic using this awesome app I just found called The Eatery. You take a picture of your food and other people judge whether it’s healthy or not.

So far for the week my other workouts have been…

  • Monday – off (as planned)
  • Tuesday – 3.75 miles running/incline walking (on treadmill)
  • Wednesday – 1.5 miles walking (on my lunch hour) + some additional walking after work (1 mile or so) = 2.5 miles total
  • Thursday (today) – 1ish mile walk at lunch, and the ZWOW I just finished.

What are your workouts of the week? Have you done a ZWOW yet?
