About the Cheff
Name of Chef: Elizabeth Shaw, M.S., R.D.
Family Members: Wayne Shaw
Community: Scripps Ranch, Wine Country
Interests: Hiking, running, and laying on the beach – basically anything fitness-oriented and in the sun! I also love cooking and recipe creation… You will typically find me doing this at least four nights out of the week!
Favorite Local Activity: Hiking Iron Mountain with my husband, or visiting the local Scripps Ranch Farmers Market
About the Recipe: I love entertaining and came up with this recipe when we hosted a brunch for the Bears versus Vikings game last season. My husband is originally from Chicago – we are big Chicago sports fans in this house! Being health-conscious myself but wanting to satisfying the hungry football boys, I decided to go out on a limb and see how this would hold them over, when paired with homemade biscuits of course. It was a win! Plus, this simple egg white frittata can be prepared ahead of time and heated in a jiff to provide your family a weekend-worthy breakfast mid-week. What’s better than giving your family the best nutrition?
About the Chef: As a local San Diego registered dietitian and certified health nut, I love creating recipes that focus on using fresh, local, healthy ingredients in recipes to nourish my family. I write a healthy cooking blog at www.shawsimpleswaps.com and own a nutrition private practice here in Scripps Ranch. I also teach for the local community colleges and am the housing and dining dietitian for UC San Diego. I may wear a few different hats, but it’s only because I love teaching the public about health and wellness and can’t seem to give any of them up!
