My body likes protein. It hates sugar and flour.
I do not like protein. I like sugar and flour.
It's a constant battle, knowing that when I eat more protein, less refined carbs, I feel better. Sometimes feeling better isn't fun.
Would I prefer quiche with a perfect, flaky, buttery, delicious pie crust?
Hello. That is a dumb question.
I also would prefer to have a delicious, protein packed, day fueling, way bigger piece of crustless quiche, which helps me save up my carbs for a cupcake later in the day.
My friend, no-blog Alicia, has drastically turned her eating upside down in the most inspiring of ways, and served this quiche to me as we sat around her table drinking coffee and chatting about life and dreams and the future.
Surprisingly, I didn't miss the crust. It is flavorful, rich, and seems way more indulgent than it really is.
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups frozen chopped broccoli (or your favorite veggies)
1/2 cup half & half
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 pieces of bacon cooked and crumbled
Pepper to taste
Pour into a lightly greased (or sprayed with Pam) pie dish
Bake at 375º for 40 minutes.
Approx. 310 calories per hearty slice.
*Also great divided up into twelve cupcake lined muffin tins.
Easy and portable, and quick to heat up in the microwave the next day.
Two muffins per 310 calorie serving.
Yay protein. And cupcakes. And not making Myfitnesspal mad.
