✨Notes✨

– Oat fiber was the Lifesource brand. From Amazon. This is the only brand I can recommend. Please note that Oat Fiber is different than Oat Flour. Oat Fiber contains NO Carbs. (I’m not sure what you could substitute that will give it the same texture.)

– Quiche is pretty flexible on ingredients, as long as you keep the egg filling and cream mixture the same, you can play around with different cheeses, veggies and meats.

– Make sure to not use all of Sharp Cheddar or your Quiche will be too oily.

– 2 different cheeses make for a tastier Quiche.

– You can make this Quiche crustless, the end baking times will stay the same.

– Quiche is great for potlucks, breakfast, lunch or dinner.

– I used Beeler’s Chorizo. It’s Gluten Free and has a really nice flavor. Whatever you don’t use in the recipe can be placed in the freezer, or you could make some queso dip or throw into eggs or a low carb tortilla.

– Tastes great with a Salad of Arugula or Spinach topped with my http://reedlovesketo.com/jalapeno-cilantro-dressing/

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress
    like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google
    (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

      Hi Justin I bought the theme from a company called pipdig and the theme is Equinox. The company helped me set it up and put it on WordPress. It’s very user friendly and I’m still learning so hopefully over time it will improve. I checked out your site and I think it looks great. You keep up the good work too. Thank you for your kind words.
