Sausage, Mozzarella and Artichoke Mini Frittatas

Pin It
Why hello 2013! Happy new year and the best wishes to all you guys for an extremely lucky and prosperous 2013. Did you guys make any new year's resolutions?? I didn't even think of any because I probably can't commit to it. I've just promised myself to eat healthier and treat myself from time to time :)

Exciting news today is that I was asked to guest post for Yesle's blog "D for Dentist". We met at the American Red Cross club at Rice during my undergrad years and now she's at UPenn to be a dentist. I'm glad blogging has brought us together because her blog is super cute and I will need lots of dental work in the future (haha)...

Here's the link to a mini frittata recipe at her blog!

Happy Reading and Thank You 2012 readers :D

Before I forget my science of the day tidbit. In the picture above you'll notice my the delightfully green avocado toast. I usually avoid avocado like the plague unless it's in guacamole form. I think it's the texture or gummy taste I don't care for too much. But did you know that...

Consuming Avocado will Decrease Inflammation Protein from a Burger
After consuming red meat, there is a substantial increase in Interleukin 6 (IL-6), a marker of inflammation. At UCLA, males who ate avocado in their burgers had only a 40% increase, as opposed to a 70% increase with just a patty and lettuce.

That's speculatively good news for those prone to heart diseases, clotting and narrowing blood vessels. Although, don't go eating burgers like crazy with avocados. They're still high in calories and fat (well good fats), unless you want to invest in this crazy device... thanks segway inventor...
