Like I mentioned, this can be a great weekday breakfast if you do the cooking ahead of time and have them waiting for you in the fridge. On a busy morning, just grab a couple of them, warm them up, and youre ready to go!
Why You Should Use Kale In This Recipe, If You Can

That being said I personally LOVE this mini frittata recipe with kale. I love the taste and texture of kale
And did you know that kale packs a huge punch of nutritional benefits? In fact, kale is known as one of the most nutritionally dense foodsperiod!
Just one cup of raw kale contains the following vitamins, minerals, and nutrients:
- Vitamin A (206% of your DV!)
- Vitamin B1 (thiamin)
- Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
- Vitamin B3 (niacin)
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin C (134% of the DV)
- Vitamin K (a whopping 684% of the DV!!)
And all of those vitamins and minerals come with only 33 calories! Plus, kale also contains fiber and protein, which are great for helping you feel full.
While kale contains very little fat, much of the fat it does contain is a type of omega-3 fatty acid.No More Pain: Melt Joint Pain Away With This Golden Drink
With all of these health benefits, theres no reason NOT to add kale to these delicious mini veggie frittatas!
How These Mini Frittatas (And Other Protein-Packed Foods) Can Help Boost Your Metabolism
Unlike many popular carb-heavy breakfast foods… these mini frittatas will actually keep you full until lunchtime.
Thats because theyre PACKED with protein, thanks to the eggs!
(And thats a big win for me, since I dont have to be miserably hungry all morning AND so I dont start snarfing down cookies, potato chips, and whatever other snacks I find hidden in my desk.)
In addition to helping you stay full longer, protein is also essential to helping your body build and repair muscle & tissue.
(Yesyou can actually eat MORE and boost your metabolism!)
In fact, one study found that when people increased their protein intake by just 15-30% (which I personally find totally doable)… they burned an average of 441 MORE caloriesevery. day.
