Quiche - Healthier and more portable than Cereal
Breakfast is a must!! People who skip breakfast will crave a minimum of 800 calories more per day.
Hear is a breakfast recipe from a patient Christena R.
I once read that breakfast cereal is among the most processed foods out there....regardless, it isn't something I choose to eat. What? Then how do you start your morning? Check out this recipe that I modified from "Paleo Comfort Foods" (such a great cookbook!).
Make a 9x13 (or a lasagna pan's-worth!) and store pre-cut squares in tupperware- voila! Breakfast for champions on the go.
1C egg whites
1/4 C almond flour (you can grind almonds into a powder in a seed and nut grinder)
1 1/2 T Baking Powder
Olive Oil (drizzle for cooking)
1 C onions
1 C Mushrooms
2 C spinach
1 C broccoli
1/2 C Salsa - drained
Salt and Pepper to taste
Turkey Sausage Links cut up, canadian bacon or what ever type of protein you choose.
OVEN= 350* (I spray dish with coconut spray to make it non-stick)
Blend eggs and egg whites in blender; add almond flour and baking powder
In a large, hot, skillet, add cold oil and combine veggies- cooking until soft (add spinach last as it releases a ton of water). Pour veggie mix into sprayed dish.
Cook what ever breakfast meat you choose until it is cooked through (I figure once I am snacking on it out of the pan-I am good to go!) Pour into baking dish.
Pour egg mixture over veggies and meat.
Bake for about 45 minutes, or until it is cooked through and golden brown.
After the dish has cooled, cut into serving size squares and store in airtight container in the fridge. It can be microwaved for easy and quick breakfast through the week.
I have made this using countless other combos depending on what was in my fridge.
