Why do we love eggs?
We all know that eggs taste delicious and are so versatile. People following a low carb or keto diet rely on the power of eggs to provide high quality protein to help keep us full and reduce insulin resistance.
According to Healthline, eggs really are a super food. When we choose enriched, organic pasture raised eggs, we are providing our bodies with tons of vitamins and nutrients. Eggs are rich in Vitamins B12, B2, B5, selenium, choline, and lutein and zeaxanthin for eye health. Whew, that is a whole pharmacy of vitamins in one little egg!

How easy is it to make quiche?
Quiche is a simple, quick recipe that you can make very easily. And you will love how easy it is to change up the ingredients to have different flavors in your quiche.
- Preheat oven and prepare pie plate.
- Put defrosted and drained chopped broccoli on bottom of plate.
- Mix all ingredients except cherry tomatoes and pour on top of broccoli. Arrange the cherry tomatoes on top of egg mixture.
- Bake at 350°F for approximately 40 minutes or until no longer jiggly in center.
- Serve warm or room temperature.
What substitutions can we make?
- You can use regular milk instead of half and half. I have never made this recipe with dairy free milk, but I have seen other quiche recipes that used almond milk.
- Chopped ham or sausage can be used instead of bacon. Or leave out the meat. Just add a few more vegetables. There is enough flavor in the quiche, so it should be fine.
- Asparagus, mushrooms and spinach are all delicious veggies that can be added instead of broccoli.
- Plain cheddar, goat cheese, mozzarella and Swiss are some other cheeses that taste great in a quiche.
