Spinach & Feta Cheese Frittatas | #Jennie-O

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Jennie-O.com for which I received compensation, all opinions are 100% my own.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

As a family we don’t eat pork nor a lot of red meat so most of the time my meals are made with either chicken or turkey.  Before becoming a member of the JENNIE-O Switch Circle, I had always purchased Jennie-O bacon and breakfast sausage which my son loves and I use the ground turkey in my lasagna and tacos.

This partnership is perfect because now when I receive coupons and merchandise from Jennie-O, it gives me an opportunity to try new recipes and then share them with you.

 What I like about this recipe is that I can make the Frittatas the night before, then hubby and the boys can warm them up the next morning in the toaster oven.

Super Foods for Seniors - Chapter 5 body slimming secrets

Menopause is making it very difficult for me to lose weight, even though I try to eat the right foods and limit my wine consumption, I know I need to increase calorie burning exercises.  However, in addition to exercise the following foods can help tame the fat and fight the flab.

  •  Tomatoes – tomato based foods to replace fats like gravies/sauces i.e. salsa
  • Barley – this grain has been listed as a Super Food in every chapter, it swells to make you full for longer periods of time

  • Black Beans – High in Fiber – eat more foods with high fiber to lose weight faster

  • Squash – Sweetened it up by sprinkling with cinnamon

  • Lemon Juice – Replace butter with lemon juice on veggies to rev up the flavor lemon juice

  • Spices – Rosemary, garlic, nutmeg, cinnamon, mint, etc. are taste boosters for low-cal dishes

  • Oats – nonfattening foods can improve your mood and stop you from overeating.

  • Brown Rice – healthy fiber to fill you up

  • Water – no explanation needed

  • Turkey – use ground turkey instead of ground beef

  • Green Tea – rejuvenates metabolism which helps burn more calories

  • Chestnuts – perfect lo-cal snack available September through February

Smart steps to safe weight loss:

  • Eat only what you can burn

  • Control your portions

  • Eat more plant than animal foods

  • Exercise regularly

  • Keep a food diary

  • Set realistic goals

  • Don’t DIEt – just eat healthy

Most people want to lose a few pounds but eating the right foods alone won’t make it happen, it must be combined with some form of exercise.  Check with your health care professional before starting any new exercise regiments to stay safe and healthy.
