Veggie Egg White Frittata

Timothy Ferriss, creator of The 4-Hour-Body, has a trademark plan aimed to get you the body you’ve always dreamed about in just 4 hours a week. A key strategy is to eat 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up. Eating high-protein foods stimulates the production of fat-burning hormones. Ferriss believes starting your day with this type of meal will jumpstart your weight loss. This is the perfect protein-packed breakfast to start your day.
