keno-quiche-recipe

One of the hardest parts of managing a ketogenic, low-glycemic, or low-carb diet is preparing meals that are both satisfying and diet appropriate.

While obvious foods like pizza or sandwiches stand out from the crowd, something as simple and delicious as a quiche can also be off-limits. It would be a shame to have to miss out on such an easy-to-make breakfast because it requires a crust.
