EGG & SWEET POTATO FRITTATA: This is a handy one to make every week as it will last a couple of days and can be eaten hot or cold. Great for a snack on the go or a lunch, as you can adjust portion size. Fry off grated sweet potato and chopped veg (loads of greens!), then add an egg mix (8-10 eggs to last 2 days) and stir until egg starts to set, finish under the grill.

 

 SNACK IDEAS:

             1 apple with almond butter (1 tablespoon)

             Couple of handfuls of Trail Mix (dried fruit and nuts). A bag of Trail Mix is always handy to have and works well as a snack

             FAGE yoghurt. Add mixed berries and a handful of granola.

             Egg & Sweet Potato Frittata: Same as above. This works really well as a hot or cold snack
