Salmon, Cottage Cheese, and Zucchini Frittata

Frittata au saumon, fromage cottage et courgettes

The frittata is perfect for any time of the day: breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This protein-rich recipe, with eggs, cottage cheese, and salmon, will keep you full for longer. Salmon, in particular, makes this frittata an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Paired with two slices of high-fiber bread, as recommended, you'll consume over 10g of fiber and less than 40g of carbohydrates per serving. This is beneficial for individuals concerned about cholesterol or diabetes, or those looking to increase their fiber intake as part of a weight loss or low-carb diet. Enjoy your meal!
