Low Carb veggie frittataHere is an excellent recipe for your low carb winter meal plan—our delicious veggie frittata. Our weight loss physician recommends protein-rich meals like this because they will fill you up while helping build the lean muscle mass needed to increase caloric burn.

The eggs that are a staple of this delicious dish are a complete protein, which means they provide all of the essential amino acids our bodies need to function optimally. In addition, they are rich in choline, which is found in only a handful of foods, but is essential for building cell membranes. This frittata is also packed with delicious winter veggies that provide lots of flavor, as well as important antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
