A crustless asparagus quiche with baby spinach leaves that’s simple to make. It’s a delicious morning treat with little effort involved in preparation.
Since the beginning of the year, I have been following a strict low carb and low calorie diet along with regular exercise. I have lost over five pounds which is the few pounds I gained over the holidays and some extra.
Right now, I am the lightest I have been in over twenty years. It could be a coincidence, but I had my thyroid medication switched from Armour to NP Thyroid on January 4th.
Some of my quick weight loss could be from the change in my prescription. From what I’ve read online, NP Thyroid is a more effective thyroid hormone replacement medication when compared to Armour.
I do feel better on the NP Thyroid, but may be slightly hyperthyroid. My doctor recommended that I wait six weeks before having my thyroid levels tested, so I will know for sure next month.
I have been eating a lot of eggs over the last couple weeks during my weight loss period. I don’t always have time in the morning to cook eggs so I like to baked a crustless asparagus quiche to slice for quick breakfasts.
Spinach and cheese is my favorite quiche, but I had a bag of frozen asparagus in the freezer and thought I’d give it a try with a little bit of baby spinach leaves. The result was delicious and a true morning treat with little effort.
The quiche kept for almost a week in my fridge. I ate if for breakfast and a couple dinners during the weekdays. It tasted just as good leftover as it did freshly made.
So, if you are looking for an easy low carb meal, just whip up this crustless asparagus quiche and you’ll get a whole week of meals. It should also freeze well if you’d like to store it longer.
I used a blend of mozzarella and parmesan cheeses in the quiche. Feel free to change those up if you’d like. It’s just what I had on hand. But you can change up the flavor by using different cheese blends.
Eggs are a staple for me on low carb. And, although I initially started to lose unwanted weight, I’ll be sticking with this way of eating for life.
I love them so much, I’ll eat them for dinner after work. They make a quick keto meal. I like to make cheese omelettes with a little veggie mixed in.
So, keep a good supply of eggs in your refrigerator. For induction and egg fast friendly recipes, check out this collection. And, if you’d like to try other quiche variations, I’ve also got an egg fast and a spinach mushroom quiche recipes on the blog.
I hope you enjoy this yummy asparagus quiche as much as I did! You can even make a double batch and bake it into a 9×13-inch casserole pan. Just cut it up into squares.
