Spinach Mushroom Quiche

Healthy eating is a way of living. When I decided to make a conscious effort to eat more fruits and vegetables, I didn’t call it a diet. Instead I thought of eating better as a lifestyle change. It makes me happy to know that I’m taking care of myself and my family. I want to nourish our bodies with foods full of vitamins and minerals. However, the food still needs to taste good too! Thankfully I’ve discovered many new recipes that fit both criteria including this recipe for Spinach Mushroom Quiche from DrinkSilk.ca.

I tend to avoid recipes where I have to make my own crust. I think the thought of having to roll and manipulate the dough exhausts me. However, this crust almost makes itself! You won’t even need the rolling pin and it turned out perfectly.

I’d make this recipe any time of day, but it’s traditionally served for brunch. If you’re looking to eat better, this Spinach Mushroom Quiche is a great way to start on the path to healthy living!
