Eat healthy and lower your carb intake!





One of my favorite vegetables during the summer is zucchini.


Quiche is a light delicious brunch or even dinner for me. I am more of a vegetable than meat eater.


Actually, I hardly ever eat meat. Why? Well for starters everyone has had bypass surgery sibling wise in my family.


Mom and dad passed from heart problems, my Aunt had bypass, brothers both had bypass.


Now I maintain my carb intake, eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid anything that has high cholesterol.


I didn't eliminate everything, just in moderation, we don't eat pasta three times a week anymore.

We didn't watch carbs growing up



It really is very difficult to eat healthy when you grow up eating delicious pasta in an all Italian family.


We always had fabulous Italian rich pastries and lots of carbs.


I try to maintain a consistent weight and have it checked every year. I


also have high blood pressure which is all hereditary and eat low sodium.



Eating healthy is a way of life 



In most of my recipes, I will substitute lower fat but check the sugar content, it doesn't mean it lower fat if it sugar laced!


The sugar is a carb that turns into fat! If you prefer a crust, I have also provided the recipe below. This one is crustless.


The little cupcakes are packed with delicious cheese and garlic flavor.


Enjoy the quiche, it's healthy and delicious!
