I'm currently redeeming one free week of yoga as a beginning at CorePower Yoga, which means that at least for the remainder of this week, I'll be annoyingly healthy. Oh, except for that prime rib I devoured last night at Crosby's Kitchen.

On a mission to atone for last night's medium-rare and horseradish-cream covered sins, I insisted on Sunday brunch in this morning, and made an extremely healthy version of JB's standard brunch order - a Greek omelette. Frankly, this could just as easily be an omelette but I've yet to make an omelette without it breaking/burning/running so I spared myself the stress, threw it in the oven and called it a very happy day.

Making a few of these would be a great option for entertaining. They're almost embarassingly easy and totally fit into my new, yoga-enhanced healthy lifestyle! (This week.)  I've pasted in the nutritional stats below the recipe... kind of unbelievable, no?

What's up, aperture priority mode? Forgive the pointless pictures while I play with my camera. Slowly but steadily workin' towards 10,000!

Did you know there was such a thing as a tomato knife? I did not, and I have spent the past 28 years squishing tomato after tomato.

Breakfast feasting with AmyLu chicken sausage - the best.



Healthy Greek Frittata


Serves 4

  • 4 whole eggs

  • 5 egg whites

  • Large handful of spinach

  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped

  • 6 green onions, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup fat free feta*

  • 1 tsp oregano

  • black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Saute chopped tomatoes and green onions in a non-stick pan, coated with cooking spray. Add spinach and cover to wilt.

  3. Transfer cooked vegetables into a pie dish prepared with cooking spray and allow to cool.

  4. Whisk together eggs, egg whites, and oregano, then pour the egg mixture over cooled vegetables.

  5. Sprinkle feta on top, then add pepper to taste. You don't need salt, the feta is already salty!

  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until egg is completely set.

  7. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Slice and serve!

*fat free feta is the least scary fat free cheese, and personally, I don't mind it. However, you could easily substitute in reduced fat or even full fat feta here and still have a very healthy dish!
