Get on track with your healthy lifestyle this summer! Sign up here to try something new and tasty every week.
For Week #2 we bring you “Quiche Me, I’m a Dietitian” by Monica Auslander. One of our favorite parts about this week’s recipe? These mini-quiches freeze well and can be microwaved when you’re short on time – so you’ll never have an excuse to skip breakfast!
High protein, gluten-free quiche is the perfect savory summer breakfast or snack. Freeze these in saran wrap for later use; you can easily nuke them in the microwave when you’re in a bind.
