Make Every Meal Count

This phrase is a great reminder of not only how important what we eat is to our health but also in what quantity. The Beef Checkoff has a program that helps you with your protein intake for each meal.
Monitoring meals doesn’t need to boring. The 30 Day Protein Challenge is a fun, step-by-step way to help you get an optimal amount of protein throughout your day. Significant research shows that some people can lose and/or maintain a healthy weight, support a healthy metabolism, and age more vibrantly when they consume more high-quality protein, within calorie goals.

The Beef Checkoff

The Beef Checkoff has an amazing free tool to help you calculate grams of protein in your recipes! I used it to create my Beef and Cheddar Quiche.

This easy quiche recipe has 3 types of protein. Beef, cheese and eggs round out this breakfast with 27 grams of protein per serving.
I especially like the versatility of this recipe. You can use leftover beef roast or freshly prepared steak pieces. I used half and half instead of cream but milk or part milk will work as well.

Grating your own cheese for this dish is the way to go. Many packaged shredded cheese contain agents to keep the cheese from clumping. Unfortunately these additives hinders the melting process. I like my quiche smooth and creamy. I bet you do too.

Minced shallots and a bit of thyme brings out the wonderful umami taste of beef.
