Happy new year!!! Did you go out and celebrate or stay home and kick back and relax? I was so kicked back and relaxed, I was asleep by 830 pm. Good gravy, I am getting old, lol. Today is actually the big day for me. I started my second round of Whole 30 this morning. Why put myself through a second round? I wanted to do another round because I feel better when I eat the Whole 30/ Paleo way. After my Whole 30 last April, I fell back into some bad habits, like drinking soda, and went totally off the rails at the end of August and beginning of September when some incredibly stressful shit went down in my personal life. Now that everything is better, I want to get back some of the things I lost when I stopped being fully committed to the Whole 30/ Paleo lifestyle. So for the next 30 days I am soy, dairy, grain, bean, added sugar, processed food free and my recipes will be too. Don’t worry though, I am going to include the non – Whole 30 ingredients so everyone can make the recipes whether they are Whole 30 or not.
First up, is a recipe I found in a Keto cookbook when I was home for Christmas. The recipe is for a very basic Quiche. Because it is a low carb Keto recipe, there are no onions in the recipe. Next time I would add some. You could also vary this with other vegetables or sausage instead of the bacon. Nutritional yeast is not the same as Brewer’s yeast and is a necessary part of this dish. Don’t leave it out.
Bacon Lover's Quiche (Whole30)
Adapted From A Keto Cookbook My Mom Had
3-5 strips bacon, about 3 oz
1/2 cup plus 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut milk
3 TBS nutritional yeast
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
dash ground nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease 2 5 inch pie pans with olive oil or ghee; set aside. In a frying pan, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove from the pan, crumble and set aside. Crack eggs into a small bowl. Gently whisk until scrambled. Add the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix well. Divide the egg mixture between the pie plates. The pans will be almost full. Bake for 30 minutes or untill the egg is set. Let sit 30 minutes before serving.
