If you’re on the hunt for a low-carb, high-protein breakfast meal that will fill you up and also tastes deliciously good, try this mouthwatering frittata.

Packed with turkey, eggs and spinach, this dish might be one of the most protein-filled dishes you could ever try. The addition of sweet potato and basil gives the dish a lighter, more flavoursome taste that works perfectly for the first thing in the morning. You can make this up the night before, cover it with plastic wrap, pop it in the fridge and enjoy a slice each morning with a cup of tea or coffee to get your day started. It should last for about three days in the fridge or two months in the freezer. Enjoy!
