Here’s a quick meal prep idea for your low carb diet. I make a batch of mini crustless quiches most weeks and eat them for brunch or lunch. You can add any vegetables, protein and or cheese to use what’s available and to tailor it to your personal taste. These have ground beef but you can change to ground turkey or leave out the meat completely. Eggs are a great source of protein by themselves.
