The ideal breakfast is full of protein that will keep you full throughout the morning

Let’s face it: Eating a healthy breakfast is important. And it’s not just because it’s “the most important meal of the day.” When you start your day with processed carbs and sugars (all the stuff that’s found in pastries, fancy coffee drinks and most store-bought cereals), you’re sending your blood sugar on a never-ending roller coaster that will have you reaching for a candy bar in just a few hours.

The ideal breakfast is full of protein that will keep you full throughout the morning, as well as nutrient-rich veggies that will keep energy high and serve as natural metabolism boosters. This easy-to-prepare frittata has the best of both worlds, and even better is the addition of bone broth protein.

You’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard about the tremendous health benefits of bone broth, but, for many people, it’s just not always convenient to make their own from scratch. My Bone Broth Protein powder eliminates this need by transforming gut-boosting bone broth into a convenient protein powder. It works in smoothies, desserts, baked goods or anywhere else you need a healthy protein-boost—like in this super-easy frittata recipe.
