Easy Crustless Greek Style Quiche (Dairy free, Low Carb, Low Fat, Gluten Free)

Easy Crustless Greek Style Quiche (Dairy free, Low Carb, Low Fat, Gluten Free)

Most of the quiches I have seem have 5-6 eggs, and way too much heavy cream and cheese. Not exactly a healthy food in my opinion. When Pad emailed me and requested a quiche recipe, I decided I was going to make one that is loaded with veggies,  fewer eggs , no crust or dairy.  Crustless is popular now. It saves time and calories.  This quiche has so much flavor you won’t miss it I promise.  For a vegan version, you can simply use egg replacer (Bob’s Red Mill brand is very good), or tofu to replace the 2 eggs in this recipe.

Homemade Apple Sauce

Homemade Apple Sauce

Here’s a random factoid: Realtors suggest that people have the smell of apple pie in their home when they are showing it to perspective clients. Why? Because it so smells warm and inviting. And when I made homemade apple sauce recently, I knew what they meant. The smell was so cozy and idyllic. And not only was it great as a side dish during Thanksgiving dinner, it was so delicious that I ate it for breakfast the next morning – and as dessert the next night. There are a lot of reasons why you should make this recipe, not the least of which is that it will make you feel like a happy and contented child wearing flannel pajamas. Print Homemade Apple Sauce Is as Good For Breakfast as it is for Dessert Prep Time: 10 minutesCook Time: 20 minutesTotal Time: 30 minutes Yield: 4 Ingredients3 large apples ¾ cup of water ¼ cup of brown sugar 1 teaspoon of cinnamon ½ teaspoon of crushed sea salt InstructionsPeel and core the apples and dice into 1-inch pieces.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Brown Sugar and Apples (gluten free)

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Brown Sugar and Apples (gluten free)

When the windows are covered with cold condensation it makes everything seem cold and a little desolate. It’s times like this when there’s nothing better than a big bowl of homemade oatmeal. Especially if it’s topped with luscious brown sugar, spicy cinnamon and crispy apples. But oatmeal doesn’t just fill your soul with goodness, it’s also incredibly good for you. First off, it helps lower cholesterol because it has a special strand of fiber called beta-gluten, which has been proven to reduce levels of bad cholesterol. And because high cholesterol is a large risk factor for heart disease and strokes, a morning bowl of oatmeal can help save your life. A daily dose of the three grams of fiber found in a bowl can lower cholesterol by as much as 23%, which in turn means that it can possibly reduce the chance of heart disease by up to half. However, beta-gluten also has another healthy side-benefit – it helps boost the immune system.  Beta-gluten helps neutrophils, which are non-specific immune cells that help to fight infections by locating and fixing infected tissue. Oatmeal also protects good cholesterol, is high in fiber, helps stabilize blood sugar, and helps to fight type-2 diabetes. So, when you want to fight the cold weather blues and also do something nice for yourself, fix a nice big bowl of oatmeal.

It has drama, strange coincidence and – in a plot twist you probably already saw coming – some hippies.   In 1863, Dr. James C. Jackson, of upstate New York, created a nutritious grain-based food that he named “granula.” A few years later, Dr. John Kellogg, of the cereal fame, was working in a sanitarium in Michigan and he came up with a similar health food that he also named “granula.” He changed the name to “granola” to avoid legal issues with Dr. Jackson.   Although it never really gained traction in the marketplace, Kellogg’s creation made a huge impact on at least one patient at the sanitarium, Mr. Charles Post. He liked the food so much that he used it as a basis for his own product, which he...
