Quinoa Frittata is a great all-in-one meal that ticks all the right boxes for containing quality sources of protein, carbohydrate, and fat.

 

 

Here, we use spinach and feta, but like most quiches or frittatas, any fresh vegetables that you have to hand tend to work well. Quinoa is a gluten-free seed that is a source of carbohydrate and protein, and combined with the eggs and your choice of meat gives this recipe a high protein content. This makes it an easy to prepare recovery meal, or this dish can also be re-heated or eaten cold making it a useful lunchbox option.
