QUICHE. It's honestly one of my favorite foods. So much that I really don't make it that often because I'm inclined to eat half of it when I do. But a couple weeks ago, I won two free product coupons from Wholly Wholesome (at Leslie Loves Veggies) to promote their current pie recipe contest. Free organic pie shells? YES PLEASE.
Spinach, Mushroom & "Bacon" Quiche
- 9" Wholly Wholesome Organic pie shell (they have traditional, whole wheat & spelt!)

- 1 cup frozen spinach, thawed (or 8 oz fresh spinach)
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 Tb. flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 2 eggs

I'm currently reassessing my meals. I know that sounds weird but to be the cheapest possible, I eat pretty much the same thing each day of the week. It's cost effective and it's easy to make sure that I eat a balanced diet. But after a couple of months, it gets boring. And lately my breakfast has stopped filling me up! : ( I'm thinking about adding a green monster somewhere in my day for energy...but I'm worried about the price of 2 cups of organic spinach a day. We'll see. Any suggestions?
Do you ever reassess your nutrition? I think it needs to be done as often as possible to avoid boredom. It makes eating healthy more fun!
