Happy New Year! I hope you’re having a wonderful 2019 so far and that you have taken some time to rest and replenish your energy after the craziness of the holidays. If you need a little support getting back on track, I have a great Post Holiday Survival Guide post right here! This article has plenty of easy-to-incorporate tips to help you feel healthier, calmer, and ready to take on the new year!

A huge part of starting your day feeling energized and focused is eating a well-balanced breakfast packed with protein, healthy fat, and fibre. This frittata is packed with anti-inflammatory fats from smoked salmon, tons of liver-supporting nutrients from the onions and garlic, and choline and B vitamins for brain support from the eggs. Plus it just tastes delicious!

It’s super easy to pull together too: just caramelize the onions and garlic, whisk everything together, and pop it in the oven while you go take care of your morning routine. It’s also great to make ahead so that all you have to do on busy mornings is pop it in the frying pan to heat up while you get ready. I don’t recommend microwaving it as eggs tend to get a little gross in the microwave.

Now to the recipe!
