You know when you’ve used all of the ingredients for the week and have random things left, just sitting around in the fridge? If you’re anything like me you may think to yourself, what can I make with all of this stuff? Well that was my thought with this recipe.
I looked around the refrigerator and we had a bunch of random items: asparagus, eggplant, jalapeño peppers, avocados, carrots, limes, radishes…and the list goes on. So I grabbed a few different ingredients along with some eggs and put this quiche together.
Inspiration: Dr. Terry Wahls
After watching Dr. Terry Wahls’ Ted talk, we were prepared to increase our greens, drastically! If you’re not familiar with Terry’s story, she overcame her progressive MS by changing her diet.
It was really inspirational actually, and afterward Jeff summed it up by saying:
Can you commit to 9 cups of vegetables a day?
Dr. Terry Wahls was wheelchair-bound with MS. That was until she went Primal/Paleo and began consuming 9 cups of vegetables a day, along with grass-fed and Omega-3 rich meats. After 7 years of the “best” in medicine, it took her just 3 months of eating right to begin walking. And after 9 months she was able to ride 18 miles on her bicycle.
Many have questioned the validity of the “caveman diet”, but I have yet to find any proven opposition to it. Time and again, however, I find amazing stories like this.
If eating Primal can cure MS, how much better can it make you feel when you’re already healthy?

So, I bet you can guess what ingredients I reached for to make this recipe. And where the title came from. ;)
It’s fun to just grab a bunch of stuff and throw something together…and you better believe I had my fingers crossed that it was going to come out tasting good. ;) But I knew it came out well when it got Dave‘s seal of approval upon his first bite. :)
