Pumpkin and Feta Frittatas

Enjoy a healthy afternoon tea with this delightful recipe!

These little frittatas make the best morning or afternoon tea snacks. They also go great with a salad as a lunch, or can be a healthy breakfast on the go option. Today I served them with some homemade pesto and hummus

The food I prepare at home is often gluten free. Not because it’s a fad, or because anyone in our home is a coeliac, but I find that all of us thrive and digest better when our meals and snacks are gluten free. In my naturopathic clinic I often encourage my patients to move more towards a gluten free diet as it helps to reduce inflammation in the digestive system, and will ultimately support hormones, weight, and mood.
