Cleaning out the Fridge: Egg White Frittata with Summer Vegetables & Goat Cheese

I had some leftover veggies in the fridge from dinner earlier this week and some leftover egg whites from making homemade ice cream (at least my diet is balanced, right?), so I whipped up this dish which turned out quite delicious…in fact, I may intentionally make this again in the near future.  This was obviously super easy and great for a weeknight dinner.  Added bonus?  You’re looking at around 230 calories for the whole thing…and look at the portion size!

In case you haven’t picked up on it yet based on a lot of my meals being healthy, my doc changed my diet again recently due to high cholesterol thanks to my not-exactly-working thyroid.  That being said, I’m now supposed to be eating only 1,400 calories a day (yikes!) for the next few months.  Its been a week and I haven’t passed out yet, but there are some days that I’m absolutely starving!  I’m really trying to skinny down my meals and portion sizes to make sure that I have a balanced diet without sacrificing my favorite foods.  Wish me luck!  I think stepping up my calories burned might help me so I can splurge every once in awhile…look out gym, I’m going to be becoming a permanent fixture…
