September means back to school and back to a somewhat normal routine for most. Summer is definitely my favorite season, but I’m ready for fall and a more structured schedule. I’m ready to not travel as much and be home more often doing my regularly scheduled activities – working out, cooking food at home, and just relaxing.
Although, this month is going to be absolutely crazy for me. I was just in Asheville, NC, we are heading to Connecticut this weekend, then I’m in Baltimore, and then we will be in Portugal for 2 weeks. It is going to be insane. With me being gone for a lot of the month and Michael holding down the fort in Austin, I’ve been trying to stock him up with lots of food to have on hand while I’m gone.
Eating vegetables at anytime during the day is easy for me – I just love them and they never get old. On the other hand, Michael is known (yes, I’m calling him out) to not really include that many veggies in his meals unless I am there making/telling him to eat them. Granted he has gotten so much better over the past few years, but there is always room for improvement right?!
That’s where this sweet potato broccoli frittata comes in! I started making this for some meal prep clients because it was so easy and figured I needed to make it for Michael as well. It works great as a grab-n-go breakfast for the weekday, just prep it on Sunday, or you can make it for brunch over the weekend! It’s less than 10 ingredients and I’m sure you already have most of them on hand. I like to top it with some avocado and hot sauce alongside some more veggies (because yes, veggies) for a quick and easy breakfast.
