Broccoli & Smoked Provolone Quiche

This summer's been a bit strange... with all that was going on (between lab work, writing my dissertation, trips to Boston to find a place to live, packing, my defense...) I didn't sign up for any sprint tri's. :( Now, i've been running, biking, and swimming, but I kinda like having some sort of focus! Home for a month, I was thinking of tri-ing (ha) to find one around here but it's just not going to work out. Next year!!

I was totally psyched to find out that a nearby gym actually offers Bodypump classes!! And I can get a one week trial and just pay for one more week when I get back from Denver. The Penn gym just started offering this class last year and I fell in love. It's weight lifting, with encouragement:) I'm guessing it'd be pretty similar to getting a personal trainer (except not one-to-one), but having never gone that route I can't say for sure. I would totally recommend looking to see if your gym has it and give it a try!

Why the long story? Well... I made this protein-packed quiche to have ready for me when I get back from an early morning Bodypump class! Adapted from this recipe, it lacks the pastry crust and has more of a clafoutis texture.

Quiches are such classic dishes - looks fabulous!

Despite not being able to do any sprint tri's this year, those Bodypump classes sure do sound fun! :0)
