Pumpkin & Feta Frittata

  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup cooked or roasted pumpkin or you could use sweet potato, potato or kumara
  • 50gms Feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 strips of streaky bacon sliced and fried
  • 1-2 Tbsps Pinenuts fried
  • 2 sundried tomatoes
  • 2 eggs beaten with a little dash of cream or milk and Salt & Pepper

Cook your pumkin, either par-boiling it first and then frying it or use leftover roasted pumpkin, fry your bacon, add the pinenuts to give them a quick brown but take them out quickly!  Once cooked put in a bowl.
Chop up your sundried tomatoes and crumble your feta.  Beat 2 eggs with your cream and S & P in a bowl, add everything into the bowl then pour into a small frying pan approximately the size as above. Cook very slowly on a low heat for about 5 minutes and then transfer to the grill to finish the top off which will still be runny, will take about another 3-5 minutes under the grill.
This is perfect for any meal and would be an ideal thing to make to take for your lunches when you are lost for ideas! Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do :)

On the weekend I had my first ever photoshoot for just me! 
It was a bit of fun playing dress ups for a couple of hours.  
Crazy to think that the picture of me on the left was close to 5 years ago, taken back in October 2008.  It certainly keeps me motivated to keep the weight off, after all one of the biggest challenges after losing a lot of weight is keeping it off!!! 80-90% of people gain it all back and then some within 5 years which is pretty alarming.  October 2013 will be 5 years since I started this journey so by the time October 2014 comes around I will be 100% confident that all the weight I have lost is gone permanently.
