~ Continuing on this week’s theme of equinox-inspired meals, I offer you a delicious fresh pear breakfast dish just in time for your weekend brunch ~

Pear and Chard Frittata

Pear and Chard Frittata

12 eggs
1 pear, cored and sliced thin (apples would work too)
1 bunch rainbow or swiss chard, stemmed and roughly chopped (any dark leafy green will work!)
1/4 red onion, sliced thinly
1 tbsp. minced rosemary
1 tbsp. olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil and add 1/2 or more of the sliced pear, onion, and a sprinkle of salt.
  3. In a bowl, whisk eggs with a little salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Once the onion and pear is fragrant and a little caramelized, add chard and sauté until wilted.
  5. Add egg and top with pear slices for “looks”. Sprinkle rosemary on top and place whole skillet in the oven (turn off the stove burner!).
  6. Using a hot pad, remove the frittata from the oven once the center is set, about 10 mins or so.
  7. Slice and serve. Add some goat cheese if you like dairy 🙂 Leave it off is you’re strict-paleo.

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
