Yum… dinner for 215 cal.


Last night I tried the “Meatless Monday” theme. I made a Broccoli and Cheddar Fritatta that I found on Foodnetwork.com, kinda. I’m not very good at following directions so I made a few changes. I was trying to reduce the calories to 200 so I could have a piece of toast with it. It was delish! Here are the changes that I made:

Only used 6 egg whites, just hubby and I eating, daughter said she needed meat and chose to go out to dinner. I thought 8 was a lot of eggs for 2 people. I just adjusted my pan size.

I hate red onion, I used a sweet vidalia onion they taste great and they don’t make me cry.

Lastly I only used 1/4 c. of cheese and I chose a low-fat sharp cheddar. I figured since I used fewer eggs, less cheese would be ok and it was. I think this would be great with a pepper jack cheese also.

I logged it at the 215 cal. just to be safe and only had 1/2 a slice of toast. I was full all evening and so was my husband. Definitely going to make this one again.
