Roasted Asparagus & Salmon Frittata
Frittatas can be great additions to your meal-prepped breakfast options. This protein-packed frittata is on the lower carb side (2 grams net carbs) so feel free to enjoy it with other side like whole-grain toast or a salad. And although I had breakfast in mind when I made this frittata, I’ve also enjoyed it as a part of my dinner a few times.
