Riced Broccoli & Sun-Dried Tomato Post Workout Frittata


There are a handful of things in my life that I like to be quick….my post workout meal being one of them. 

Typically during a workout, no matter how long or short, I give it 110% and am ALWAYS ready to refuel minutes after finishing.  

My routine consists of either coming home from a run or coming up the stairs from my “whine cellar” AKA my home gym and heading straight to the kitchen to see what I can shove in my mouth. 

Obviously, it has to be nutritious and delicious but speed is also key here too.  If I am not blending together a smoothie my next go-to is eggs.  I love them in any form but I REALLY love them mixed in with some veggies with a side of gluten free toast. 

Lately, I’ve been enjoying my eggs frittata style made with sun dried tomatoes a riced broccoli.

Yes, riced broccoli.  No, I don’t spend the time or effort actually ricing it (remember, I am HANGRY and need fuel ASAP).  I recently found steam in a bag riced broccoli from Hanover and it’s my new jam.  

I literally steam the sucker, sauté it along with some onions, button mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes then whip up a few eggs, pour it in a pan and watch it become a kick butt stove top breakfast frittata.

Easy, peasy and quick.  Which is always why the pics I snapped are done a little hastily…I was pretty hangry and ready to dig in so for that, I apologize 😉
