It’s easy to forget weekends were pretty much invented for #metime. (Sometimes it seems those 48 hours are entirely devoted to catching up on laundry and emails.) It’s official: It’s time to treat yourself again.
One way to do that? By prepping a breakfast that feels like a fancy at-home brunch. And this smoked salmon frittata is the photo-ready, deliciously filling a.m. situation of your dreams.
“This recipe is easy to make, so you can sleep in a little and enjoy it alongside your other brunch favorites,” says Julie Harrington, RD, of RDelicious Kitchen. Harrington, the recipe’s mastermind, says it’s not only tasty but also super nutritious. “Egg yolks contain choline which promotes normal cell activity, liver function, and the transportation of nutrients throughout the body,” she says. And since it’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, Harrington adds that smoked salmon is also touted as an anti-inflammatory.
Plus, all of the ingredients are zero Points® on the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program, which now includes more than 200 foods you can enjoy without having to do the math. In fact, the eggs and smoked salmon are just two of many new additions, which also include filling options like beans and chicken breast for a ton of variety for your daily menu. A weekend morning where you can sleep in and not have to think too hard about eating better? #Luxury.
