Diet Vegetable Quiche recipes
3/4 cup fat-free egg substitute, liquid
10 oz chopped frozen spinach, 1 package
3/4 cup shredded fat-free Cheddar or mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup green pepper, diced, can use red pepper as well
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/2 tsp table salt, to taste
1 tbsp salsa, put on top if desired
Heat oven to 350F
Line 12 cup muffin pan with foil baking cups, spray the cups with the cooking spray.
Thaw and drain spinach - I wring it out well in my hand.
Mix the spinach, egg substitute, cheese, peppers, onions, hot pepper sauce, salt in a bowl.
Fill the foil cups with the mixture.
Bake at 350F or 20 minutes, testing so that a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove from cups to serve.
* Quiche cups can be frozen and reheated in the microwave. Any combination of appropriate vegetables and reduced-fat cheeses may be used.

I am also trying to lose weight, and while I have significantly reduced my caloric intake I am never hungry. I refuse to be hungry on a diet. Protein keeps you feeling full and so do complex carbohydrates and drinking lots of water and green tea.
For breakfast (which I never skip), I have an omelette (1 whole egg and 2 egg whites of eggs that are enriched with omega-3 fatty acids) along with 3 ounces of pre-packaged but ready-to-eat wild salmon in the morning and fat-free yogurt sprinkled with flaxseed. For lunch, my main dish is a recipe that uses beans as its base - either red kidney beans or lentils - because beans have both fiber and protein
