completed-pie

Egg Pie will never be the same.

The idea for this egg pie came from a recipe out of Clean Eating magazine.

1 cup chicken broth

2/3 cup quinoa

1 bay leaf

Cook the quinoa according to the package directions; just use chicken broth instead of water and add the bay leaf. Set aside to cool.

Preheat oven 375°

3 eggs

4 egg whites

1/2 cup shredded cheese

1 tablespoon oil -I used coconut

1 onion – size depends on how much you like onion

2 cups of any vegetable you like in eggs-I used asparagus and kale

½ cup milk- almond milk worked great

Salt and pepper

Grease your pie dish- I like to use coconut oil (use a pie dish that is at least an inch and a half deep)

pie-dish

Whisk one egg in a bowl.

Add 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese

Add the cooked quinoa

Stir this all together and put it in the bottom of your pie dish, press the crust up the sides of the pie dish.

Bake for 25 min.~ until crust feels dry

crust-after-baking

While your crust is baking….

Add 1 tablespoon oil to a skillet and saute the onion and your vegetables of choice (I  used leftover veggies that were already cooked).

In a bowl whisk together remaining eggs and egg whites, ¼ cup of cheese, salt and pepper…… When the sauteed vegetables have cooled little bit, add them. Pour all of this into your “crust”.

I added a little more cheese on the top.

before-oven

Bake 30 to 40 min. Until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Allow to cool and “set” at least 20 min.

done

It’s not about the big resolutions-that huge list of all the promises you make to do or be better. Soon after the list is made, overwhelm sets in and you fall off the wagon. We have all been there.

This year for me it’s going to be different.

My end of year goal is to be in a healthier place-in all aspects of my life.

Spiritually

Emotionally

Physically

Financially

I’m going to approach this with gentle shifts.

I have been asking and receiving guidance from Spirit- yep, you read it right. Spirit- as in The Holy Spirit, God, Universe, divine intelligence – whatever you want to call it.

First message is to focus on adding positive, good, healthy habits- instead of focusing on what you’re going to give up or not have.

What healthy items are you adding to your Life?
