Veggie Sausage-Cheddar Frittata

20 Jul

Fritattas are a good way to get a variety of nutrients. Eggs and cheese are a great source of calcium and protein. Mix in veggies to get an antioxidant kick as well as fiber. Fat-free cheese is a healthy alternative, especially because there is fat in the eggs and sausage.
