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!

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.

This made two servings for the sauce:  177 calories, 13 fat, 5.1 carbs, .6 fiber and 10 protein


  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 literally only took like three pictures of my dinner, because guess who joined me? Lyle!

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!

Stats for the Day:

  • 1385 calories, 116 carbs, 88 protien, 56 fat and 13 fiber
  • 36% of calories from fat, 25% from protein and 33% from carbs
  • average blood sugar 122
  • more than 10,000 steps!

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!

    April 3, 2014 at 6:43 am 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!

      April 4, 2014 at 12:19 pm Tony has been to Italy and he says the food is completely different there - nothing like the "American" Italian recipes here!

    April 3, 2014 at 7:24 am 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.

    April 3, 2014 at 8:03 am 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.

    April 3, 2014 at 8:49 am 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.

    April 3, 2014 at 12:08 pm 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.

    April 3, 2014 at 2:50 pm 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.

    April 3, 2014 at 4:10 pm 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!!

    April 4, 2014 at 2:26 am 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!
