Creamy, rich, and so easy to make, quiche is a nutritious grab-n-go meal anytime. Pair it with a salad for a complete lunch or dinner. Quiche is French, right? Nope.

Scrambled Eggs Florentine with Dairy-free Cream Cheese

Yum! Here’s the easiest high-nutrient breakfast in town. Make it in 5 minutes! Eggs Florentine sounds fancy, but it’s just eggs over wilted spinach.

This is a low-carb, Paleo-style bread, so it’s grain-free, with natural, zero-sugar sweeteners. About Paleo sweeteners… I love honey, a true Paleo sweetener, however I don’t use it much because it is extremely high in sugar and carbs, much like cane sugar! Honey will give you a nice big blood sugar spike, and that’s not how I want to start my day. I stopped using Stevia when I discovered it is highly processed with chemicals, which is
