Hi! Thanks so much for joining me. Welcome to Made Fit TV. I’m your host Jennifer DiDonato and this is episode #47 so thanks so much for sticking out with us. And in case you don’t know Made Fit TV is everyone’s source for health and fitness information and entertainment and it is where fit bodies don’t just happen, they’re made. So, thanks for joining us. We’re in the kitchen today because of course we haven’t done a recipe in a while and I always have things that I’m conjuring up. I know I’m crazy but I wanted to share it with you. And today, it is a Low Fat Broccoli Frittata. Now, in case you don’t know what a Frittata is, basically, the main ingredient are eggs. Eggs are pretty much one of the top dogs when it comes to protein, really high quality amino acids that you’re getting to your system into your muscles and high quality protein. So today, I’m going to show you a really simple, affordable, and convenient recipe that you can make for breakfast, or for dinner, or even for a snack. And this is what it looks like right here. Now, I made this for you guys earlier. I just had it so we kind of dig in just a little bit of sour taste and trust me. It tastes pretty delicious. So, I’m happy and I’m sure you will be too. So let’s get started. All right, first what I want you to do is make sure that you set your oven to about 375º right over here. Now, it depends on what kind of oven you’re using or also what kind of pan you’re using as well. But about 375º should be good. And I want you to take a 9-inch pan just like this. I’m going to have you take your PAM spray. I love PAM spray you know, do with the Crisco, do with the butter, PAM spray—I just broke this. I am strong, my muscles just broke the PAM spray cap. Okay, I’m just going to spray it, kind of get along the edges as well because when you make the frittata, you’re going to want to be able to get it out of the pan so you want to make sure you spray it nice and go because you want it to get stocked and after you scoop it out with a spoon. Okay. So, the next thing we’re going to do, like I said we’re using really, really simple ingredients. We’re going to take some fat free cottage cheese. Fat free cottage cheese is perfect because it’s fat free protein and I get in all of that in there and also you know when you’re mixing it and with these types of recipes you can’t really tell the difference between the fat-free and regular. So, we’re going to do one cup of the fat-free kind of cheese. Okay, we’re just kind of pour that in. We’re going to use medium to large bowl. Put it all in there. Next, we’re going to take our eggs. Now, like I said eggs are packed with protein as you may know. With this one, we’re going to be using two whole eggs and four egg whites. Now, if you still don’t have the whole egg white, egg yolk separation down, I do believe that they do sell egg yolk separators at any grocery store or house ware store so don’t worry. Just keep practicing you’ll get it. Okay. So, now we have our two whole eggs. We have our one cup of that free cottage cheese and then the four egg whites in here. You’re just going to take a beater, put it on low. We’re just going to beat it for just maybe two minutes. You just want to blend it. It doesn’t have to be like smooth and creamy. You just want to blend it so it’s not chunky and so the cottage cheese still maintained its curd light texture. We just keep that foaming in here, see. So it gets a little foamy, it gets a little airy but that’s what’s going to give it a little bit of the lift when you bake it. Okay, moving on we’re going to use five ounces which is going to be a half a cup of the frozen chopped broccoli but if you’re not fan of broccoli or you like spinach, spinach works great too. So, you can get this in any grocery store. They’re frozen in little rectangles just like this box. I already used half of it from my early recipe so I’m going to use the other half now. Five ounces is just half a package because one whole
