Mini Quiches – Quinoa Ham and Cheese

One KEY tool in my weigh-loss journey is weekly food prep. It is a life saver and without it I would be more likely to eat something unhealthy. Don’t the Boy Scouts say something about being prepared… It’s true for weigh loss too!

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite breakfasts! This is a super high-protein breakfast that keeps well in the fridge. The recipe is simple and quick too! Perfect for busy mamas!  Do you meal plan or do weekly food prep?
