I love making crustless quiches because it does not involve the work of having to do the dough like a conventional quiche pie does. Not only it is time consuming having to prepare the dough, but avoiding the crust you can save the highly processed carbohydrates.
It is very important to avoid highly processed carbohydrates when it comes to preventing diabetes. Simple carbohydrates are stripped of their nutritious germ and fiber. Unhealthful diets often contain too many carbohydrates processed into concentrated forms (corn syrup) that provide calories and little else. The bottom line: when you fill up with carbohydrates, like complex carbohydrates such as whole grains.
For this recipe I also made the preparation shorter. No need to sauté the veggies since in the oven they will cook evenly. I am always for saving time while cooking, since we all know how busy families are nowadays.

Whole grains, starchy vegetables, beans, soy foods, green vegetables and fruits–foods served as nature grew them–are the carbohydrates that pack the highest nutritional octane. They’re rich in compounds that support good health, including fiber, nutrients, and phytochemicals. A dietary pattern based on these foods lowers the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and many major cancers.
In addition, people living with type 2 diabetes are two times more likely to develop and die from heart attacks, heart failure and strokes than people who do not have diabetes. But it doesn’t have to be that way, reduce your risk.
