Healthy Spinach Mushroom Quiche

"My crust is a bit dry and crispy, healthier. I prefer, but not your average crust. I looked off various recipes and crafted to my tastes and needs. I originally put 1/2 cup diced ham in, but ended up picking out. (I think the brand is bad). but for this recipe am leaving out. I particularly like this the morning after cold out of the fridge for a late breakfast"

I'm a food junky. I also work very hard to eat a healthy varied diet. Almost every weekend i'll spend several hours experimenting to make a delicious nutritious new handful of recipes. When i'm not cooking i'm looking for the next hiking/camping/ backpacking/kayaking trip to take. I swear I'm solar powered. I have a beautiful dog who accompanies me on nearly all trips. I also have a wonderful husband whome holds down the fort until my return. My poor hubby does not have a healthy food palate. He provides me plenty of challenge trying to find healthier (but not obviously) savory foods.
