Quiche

quicheQuiche is wonderful for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a simple dinner when served with a salad and a small baguette or whole grain bread.  It keeps for several days in the refrigerator and just needs to be reheated when you’re ready to serve and eat. Or cook up a few ahead of time and freeze them.  Eggs are a complete source of protein because they contain all the essential amino acids.  But if you are not eating egg yolks you can make it w/egg whites only.  Quiche is a great healthy meal anytime and is convenient because it can be prepared ahead of time.  And real men do eat quiche!
