Chobani Crustless Quiche and Almond Milk Alfredo

I never thought I would be a morning person, but on weekdays, I love getting up early so I don’t have to rush around before heading to work.  Most mornings I am up between 6:30 and 7:00, which gives me either an hour and a half or an hour before I have to head out the door.  Believe me, I used to be the person that would sleep until the last second and then get ready and out the door in 15 minutes!

So I had time to make quiche!  I baked up a couple baked potatoes over the weekend, so I sliced up one baked potato for the crust of the quiche.  I love how the plain Chobani made this almost taste like a custard!  This makes 4 servings:  224 calories, 7.7 fat, 15.6 carbs, 2 fiber and 23 protein.  60% of your daily Vitamin C and 40% of your daily calcium!

Chobani Crustless Quiche

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces sliced potato
  • 2 ounces deli ham, chopped
  • 4 ounces broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 plain Chobani
  • 2 ounces of mozzarella cheese
  • salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350. Place the potato on the bottom of your pie pan, top with ham and broccoli. Mix together the egg whites, almond milk and Chobani, using a whisk to break up the yogurt and incorporate it into the milk and eggs, mix in seasoning and pour into pie pan. Top with cheese and bake for 45 minutes, or until the quiche is set and the top is browned.

I had strawberries on the side, but for some reason, this was so filling, I never even ate them!

I talked one of the attorneys in my office to walk with me at lunch.  It was sunny, about 46 degrees.  We drove to the path near my office that I used to bike – two years ago!

We ended up walking a brisk pace for 40 minutes.  It’s funny because she’s really tall and her strides were twice the length of mine – I had to walk fast to keep up!  Well that, and she’s also 16 years younger than me!

I still had leftover steak to use up.  I swear it seems to keeps on going – it was an $8 steak and I think yesterday’s lunch was the 4th or 5th meal I’ve made out of it.  This time steak tostadas!  I had 3 corn tostadas, 3 tablespoons of my stove top refried beans, 3 ounces of steak, and I had a mixture of shredded carrot, red cabbage and lettuce, then topped it with Cabot chipotle cheese and my baja fresh salsa.  All three of these come in at 415 calories!

I was texting back and forth with Tony yesterday, and I give you another episode of Texting with Tony!  This one made me laugh!

Tony is feeling a bit better, but still doesn’t have much of an appetite, so he just wanted plain pasta.  I had some chicken I needed to cook up, so I decided to try to make an alfredo sauce using unsweetened almond milk.  While it might sound weird to have vanilla unsweetened almond milk, this actually worked – it was only slightly sweet, but when combined with the salty Parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper and lemon zest, it was the perfect combo.

Almond Milk Alfredo

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • pinch of crushed red pepper, salt, pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • zest of half a lemon
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter – add the flour and stir for one minute. Slowly add the almond milk, stirring constantly until it thickens – about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add in the the rest of the ingredients and stir until the cheese melts. I pan fried 3 ounces of diced chicken, and in the last two minutes of the pasta cooking, I tossed in asparagus.

  My plate:  1 cup pasta, 1/2 the sauce, the chicken and chopped asparagus – tossed it all together and topped it with a bit of shredded Parm.

I have been spring cleaning my office, and on one of my overhead cabinets I still had this calendar from last July hanging up:

My motto last summer was train insane or remain the same.  Remember that girl?!  Look at how much I worked out – nearly 90 minutes most days!  When my gym opens up next week, I have to get back to basics and get back to my training – right now I am just remaining the same!

It’s going to be a long couple days – I work a double today and tomorrow.  Right now I am just keeping my eye on Sunday – my favorite day of the week!  Make it a great day!

  1. Did you know that Pasta Alfredo is not actually a dish in Italy like we see in restaurants here today? It’s what Italian moms made their kids when they weren’t feeling so hot – kind of like chicken noodle soup here. Make sense why Tony wanted plain ol’ pasta.

    Hope he feels better soon!

    • Tony has been to Italy and he says the food is completely different there – nothing like the “American” Italian recipes here!

  2. Yum, that quiche looks delicious. I need to make one of those again!

    I can’t even fathom getting up at the last minute and rushing around. I like to take my time to wake up a bit and have coffee even before going out for my morning run.

  3. The quiche looks super yummy. I want the crispy burnt looking cheese part off the top:)
    I hope you don’t over work yourself. It sounds like a very busy end to your week. Sunday won’t get here fast enough.

  4. Dang it, everything looks so freaking delicious!!!!

    I used to not be a morning person, but now I make sure I’m up, showered and dressed before everyone else in the morning and it makes the mornings SO much easier to deal with.

    • Especially with your new baby who’s almost here – eek! I can’t believe she’ll be here soon!

  5. Ugh, I have such a hard time hitting 10,000 steps/day. It’s killing me!
    And yes to Sunday. I can’t wait!

  6. That quiche looks amazing! The browned top=yum! Glad Tony’s feeling ok- hopefully even better tomorrow. Glad the alfredo turned out. I will definitely have to try that.

  7. That photo from your walk is gorgeous!

  8. Wow that quiche looks so good – and I’m usually one of those people who thinks the crust is the best part!!

    That was a TON of exercise last July!! Back to it!!

    Nice location for your walk. And today we have rain…

  9. Way to stretch that steak!! Hope Tony feels better soon.

  10. What pretty scenery for your walk. I don’t have trouble waking up early in the morning, but I have no desire to work the day shift. Strange I know!

    Have a wonderful day Biz! Hope the sun is shining.

    • I guess after a while you just get used to the overnight shift – that’s one shift I’ve never done!

  11. That alfredo sounds interesting. I have unsweetened almond milk. I should try that.

    I don’t have to be at work at a set time, but I still wake up early on my own. I never used to be a morning person, but I became one over time.

  12. I took my fitbit off after surgery because I’m pretty sure that I move 100 steps a day and it’d depress me :-)… I really need to figure out a tofu quiche!!

  13. I love LOVE quiche! This looks so great. Definitely going to try it.

  14. I’ll have to give that almond milk alfredo a try! and that quiche…OH MY….beautiful!

  15. I will be trying the quiche in the near future. It sounds so delicious!

  16. That looks like a beautiful place for a lunchwalk.

    I have always been a morning person, getting up early has never been a problem for me. For R. it still is. He lets his alarm go off like 4 times in the morning: so annoying!

  17. I don’t know what it is about your quiche’s biz, but they’re the best! This one is on my list to try! Love plain Chobani, so it’s a no brainer!
