All the juicing and the salads and the plant based dieting haven’t been effective in dropping a few LBs before my beach trip (which is less than two weeks away). This goonette needs results! A friend recently reminded me of a trick I did to lose a few pounds before my wedding. Spinach Pie is basically a crustless quiche that you can eat any time of day. It’s tasty, healthy, filling and low carb. Add a little ketchup or hot sauce to change it up if you’re eating it more than once a day. I’m going to try to down this for breakfast and lunch over the next week (as tolerated). If it doesn’t work, at least there are cover ups and shape-wear, right?
– 1/2 large bag frozen chopped spinach (thaw and squeeze out excess water)
– 1/2 onion, minced
– 6 whole eggs, 2 egg whites
– 1/3 cup low fat cottage cheese
– 3 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
– salt/pepper/hot sauce to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk all ingredients until combined. Spray a non stick pan with cooking spray. Add ingredients and bake 30-35 minutes or until center is cooked through. Cool, cut into squares and refrigerate. Reheat it in the microwave for 30-40 seconds on high heat. Yum!
