I think I have said here before that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  I pretty much love all breakfast foods.. actually, I do love all breakfast foods.  BUT, and it’s a big but, I am not a morning person.  Like not at all.  It is a bit of a joke with my family.

For instance, when I tell someone I am not a morning person and everyone who lives with me does that “what an understatement look”.  So… it is a bit of problem, me not being a morning person, but loving morning food.

My solution is making ahead fabulously delicious brekkie food.  Casseroles, Muffins, and Frittatas are my go to choices.

One of my big breakfast recommendations is lots of protein.  I am a true believer that if you start your day off with a good dose of protein, you jump-start your metabolism as well as give your body the tools in needs to conquer the day both physically and mentally.

WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS LEEK MUSHROOM EGG WHITE FRITTATA.

I love leeks and mushrooms together.  They are the perfect little savory flavor combination.  Add that savory flavor combination with some spice, feta cheese,  tangy creme fraiche or sour cream if you can’t find creme fraiche and a whole lot of AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites for the perfect way to jump-start your day.

This is also a great go-to dinner option when you are short on time.  Just serve it with a simple salad and you have the perfect light healthy dinner.

I used AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites because they offer a convenient, fat-free, cholesterol-free and low-calorie source of lean protein.  This makes them the ideal source for  providing you with a great source in the morning when you need it most.

    I used to purchase the carton egg whites all the time at the grocery store. Then I sort of got out of it, but I’m not sure why because I really do love this product. Your fritatta looks amazing and now I’m adding leeks and carton egg whites to my grocery list.

    I love that this can be made ahead! I’m also not a morning person so getting up early to make breakfast isn’t happening.

  3. I love putting lots of fresh herbs and veggies from the garden, chives or parsley, shallots and either sweet red peppers or jalapenos to jazz it up.
