Veggies for Breakfast: potato, silverbeet and feta frittata

It can be very overwhelming with the array of new health-related products, making all sorts of unrealistic claims about health and weight-loss. But often, the best approach in achieving your health goals is to start in the kitchen, by planning, shopping and cooking simple, healthy meals filled with vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and smart carbs and fats.  

With that in mind, here's another quick and healthy recipe for my 'veggies for breakfast' mini series.

Every little effort in the right direction helps, and this is an area that most of us are falling short.
