Vegan Quiche

April 8, 2018

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That's why it's important to make sure we are choosing foods that are filling and full of nutrition. Quiche is a great way to add more protein to your daily intake, and a vegan quiche easily adds this without adding the cholesterol. 

 

Eggs are very high in cholesterol. One egg contains about 187 grams of cholesterol. That's just ONE egg! It's recommended not to have more than 200 grams of cholesterol per day. It's easy for people to eat much more cholesterol than is recommended, and this is when high cholesterol can become a problem. 

 

There have been plenty of people who are on cholesterol lowering medications, and continue eating lots of eggs, meats, and dairy. All of which contain cholesterol. Cholesterol is found only in animal products. Plants have ZERO cholesterol. So if you're wanting to lower your cholesterol, a simply way is to cut out or down on meat and other animal products, especially eggs. 

 

 

So here is a great alternative to having a quiche that is typical filled with eggs and meats and cheese:
