Camping Vacation Breakfast Idea: Vegetable Frittata

Vegetable Frittata

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day—especially for diabetics. Eating a healthy breakfast gives the body the energy and fuel it needs to be physically active. Choosing a breakfast that is high in protein and low in sugar will keep energy levels up and blood sugar levels down.

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites, eggs, basil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in skillet.
