Sweet Potato & Kale Frittata

I enjoy a good frittata like anyone else — endlessly versatile, serves many and pretty darn easy to make.  Before my journey to better health, I could’ve never imagined one WITHOUT cheese!   I mean, what are eggs without cheese right?!

Until I met this frittata!

At the first bite I was in love and any thoughts of cheese ceased to exist.  It’s so full of flavor the cheese isn’t missed one bit.

Try it out — with the ingredients listed below or switch things up with what you have on hand!
