  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, tumeric, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir in the onion, peppers and kale mixture and the Swiss chese.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the crust. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes. Drizzle the greens with the remaining tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the quiche.

  • 1 cup corn (fresh grated off cob)
  • 12 cup flour
  • 12 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/8 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil with tiny piece of butter


  1. Scrape or grate corn from cob.
  2. Mix flour/ salt , herbs with egg and almond to make a batter.
  3. Stir in the corn.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls into hot oil/butter  and fry until brown; turn over and brown other side.
  5. Serve hot either plain or with a ranch dip

(I use cast iron skillet and preheat on medium, melt butter into oil , turn to low  as cast iron on gas stove is pretty hot, soon as bubbles up, flip and cook other side until just golden brown with slight crisp)

Baked Chicken Strips

2 skinless chicken breasts (mine were two large one and I cut into 6 strips ….tip cut them when still partial frozen, makes easier cutting)

1 egg beaten with 1 cup almond milk

1 zip log back filled with 1 cup bread crumbs, 3 cups flour, 1 tablespoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon dried kale( finely crushed)

Shake bag until thoroughly mixed

Soak chicken strips in egg and milk about 15 minutes then turn and soak other side, cover and put in fridge for about 20 minutes.

Put few strips of chicken  at time in bag and shake well then place in  9x 12 Pyrex dish that has been sprayed with olive oil (or your choice of oil), bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then turn each piece and spray top of them lightly and bake at 450 for 10 minutes (I do this in toaster oven, your ovens may vary in temperature so always check for complete cooking through)

Serve chicken on bed of the Veggie and Spiced Rice with a side veggie of your choice…..serves 4
