Easter table setting

Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day! A nutritious breakfast not only provides you the energy you need to tackle your day, eating breakfast also helps you maintain a healthy weight.

Since I’ve been a dietitian, I’ve noticed that people who skip breakfast and eat most of their calories later in the day have the hardest time losing weight. Because of this association, I’ve become a proponent of eating breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and supper like a pauper.

So sometimes on the weekend, I like to splurge a little and make this delicious crust-less egg quiche for breakfast or even brunch. You can serve it with some fresh fruit, and it’s a complete meal. You can even assemble this the night before and refrigerate it until your ready to cook it in the morning.
