I’m under the guise that people fall into one of two categories… Sweet Breakfast people or Savory Breakfast people. Isn’t it usually one or the other for the most part? Like when you go out to breakfast, there’s the person that gets the french toast or the person that gets the eggs benne. For the most part. Maybe it’s more of a venn diagram though, a few people can go both ways. If I was a better graphic designer I might be able to create that image for you. But I’m not, so you’ll just have to use your imagination. 😉
ANYWAYS! I used to be that sweet person at breakfast. I loved any and every sweet breakfast item out there. French toast (obvi), waffles, muffins, Svenhard’s cheese danishes (gross and oddly delicious at the same time) and on and on. But since I’ve changed up my diet to be more paleo-based, those breakfast items have disappeared and savory dishes have become my go-to. And I love it! But I do find myself craving something sweet but not heavy and carb-y still. That’s when I decided to go for the sweet frittata. I don’t think people realize how good eggs can be when they’re sweetened up, they’re quite delightful I tell ya! So I naturally added some fruit and presto, I had myself a nice lightly sweetened (let’s be real here, it’s no Krispy Kreme) breakfast and the kids loooove it.
I can usually pull leftovers out of this if I serve it with a smoothie or something. And if you’re looking to make this Whole30, make sure to use coconut oil and bypass the honey.
I hope you like it as much as we do!
