Food For Your Skin, Breakfast Edition: Greek-Style Frittata


You always hear how breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you know that eating certain meals for breakfast can actually help the overall health of your skin? Here is a recipe for a delicious Greek-Style Frittata that will keep your skin radiant and glowing.


Take 30 minutes to make this mouthwatering morning meal, which packs a big beauty punch. The vitamin A in the spinach increases skin turnover, giving you that sought-after glow. Protein-packed eggs help form collagen, which improves skin’s elasticity, and give you a boost of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect against UV damage.

PREP TIME: 10 min
COOK TIME: 20 min
TOTAL TIME: 30 min

2 c baby spinach leaves
1½ c frozen diced potatoes, onions, and peppers (found bagged together in the freezer section)
4 lg eggs
½ c crumbled feta cheese
½ c sliced grape tomatoes
1 Tbsp olive oil
¼ c nonfat milk
1 tsp oregano

2. ADD olive oil to cleaned skillet and heat over medium. Add potato-vegetable mixture, cover, and cook, turning occasionally, until potatoes are tender but firm (5 to 7 minutes). Set aside.

4. SPRAY an 8-to 10-inch ovenproof skillet (not nonstick) with cooking spray and place over low heat. Cover bottom evenly with potatoes and pour egg mixture over top. Cook until eggs set (about 10 minutes). Place skillet under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to finish cooking top of frittata.
