{Healthy} Spinach Cheddar Quiche

Quiche is my Mom’s favorite dish – so I am celebrating Mother’s Day with a recipe tribute to her. She is working on Mother’s Day (she is a nurse!) so we actually celebrated earlier this week with this delicious recipe and a vase of tulips.  Serve this macro-friendly quiche at brunch with oatmeal cinnamon pancakes and fresh fruit or with an arugula salad as a perfect summer dinner.
