Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day but I admit I do a horrible job making time for it. I have a bad habit of hitting the snooze button on my alarm until there’s just enough time to throw on clothes, splash water on my face, and run out the door. As a result my breakfast often consists of whatever I can scarf down the quickest while standing over the sink to catch the crumbs.
I guess you could say that I’m not what most people would call a “morning person”, however I still value a nutritious meal to get the day started off right. Skipping breakfast, or any meal for that matter, is unthinkable for me. The second my blood sugar starts to tank, I morph into a raging monster who’s incapable of accomplishing anything good in the world. So breakfast is definitely a necessity in my book!
Because of that, it’s important that I have something healthy and ready-to-eat on hand at all times, like these Spinach and Goat Cheese Mini Quiches. They’re the perfect solution for busy mornings. Each one is packed with protein from eggs, spinach, and goat cheese, plus the almond meal crust which also happens to be naturally low in carbohydrates. It’s based off of my Tomato Basil Quiche and it’s just a mixture of almond meal (which is finely ground almonds), fresh garlic, olive oil and thyme. It almost sounds too simple but trust me it’s delicious.
Between the crust, the tangy sundried tomatoes and the creamy goat cheese, they’re flavorful enough to keep your taste buds happy and nutritious enough to give you the energy you need to make it through the morning. And the best part is you can prep them ahead of time and they freeze beautifully. You don’t even need to defrost them. Just pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes and they’re ready to eat!
