Spinach Cottage Cheese Quiche



This is a great low-calorie meal for any time of the day! It provides you with 18g of protein and just 170 calories per generous serving, so you won't get hungry soon after. 


Though you may think that a quiche would be time consuming, you would be wrong! This recipe comes together in minutes. I chose to skip out on a crust because I prefer it without, but you could bake this in a pre-made pie crust if you so desire. 


As an added bonus, you get all the nutrients of spinach. Iron, calcium, vitamin K, fiber, and folic acid are just a few of the great health benefits spinach offers. 


Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner... add this to your weekly routine. You will not be sorry.
