Crustless Spinach Quiche Recipe photo by Taste of Home

When it comes to finding recipes for a low carb diet, our members are the best! They are constantly sending us ideas for dishes that have helped them achieve success with our easy weight loss programs. Since our last spinach recipe was such a hit, we thought we would share another one for a quiche that is absolutely delicious and easy to prepare. This quiche is going to be crust-less to keep the carb content low.

We recommend eating lots of green leafy vegetables when you’re following diets or easy weight loss programs, especially a nutritional powerhouse such as spinach.  It’s considered one of the original superfoods, due to its high antioxidant content and the host of vitamins and minerals it boasts. Spinach is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, the healthy fats that help satiate our hunger, as well as vitamins A, K, D and E and many trace minerals. Spinach also contains a bevy of flavonoid compounds that have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, and carotenoids that promote eye health. In addition, its high mineral content helps to alkalize the body.

  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt
