Paleo Quiche + Meat = Meache Recipe.

Before we get into our Paleo Quiche aka Meache Recipe we wanna talk workouts and pushups! Our new gym program has been rockin’ this week and oh my, are we feeling it (waking up and rolling out of bed sore…yeeha!) Change = good…actually the best.

We have added in a ‘burner’ section of all of our work outs. This is where we work on an isolated muscle group (when already fatigued from everything else we have done! Why? Because it burns and we love it!)

The end of our shoulder/back program is to do three sets of push ups (on our toes, thank you very much) to failure. Holy moley…helloooo shoulders and chest!

Push ups are definitely an underestimated and sometimes forgotten exercise. With all of the shiny, pretty and interesting looking equipment in the gym, it is easy to forget how simple a work out can be.

The benefits of push ups: you can do them anywhere (that’s right, there are no excuses when it comes to push ups), they work out almost every muscle in the body and they work up a sweat! These simple little buggers scream: ultimate workout!

So next time, add a little something extra to the end of your workout: three sets of push ups to failure, trust us on this one, you will be feeling it the next day!

Today we have the perfect post-(push up)-work out meal…inspired by PaleOMG, it’s a meat base quiche…A MEACHE!

Always merrymaking,

P.s push ups have been a test of strength and fitness for years and years and it’s pretty impressive when you can drop down and give anyone 20 without a thought. What are you waiting for…drop down and give us 20!

stuff you need
    for the base
    1. 500g (1 lb.) beef mince
    2. 1 onion finely chopped
    3. 4 tbs. tomato paste
    4. 1 tbs. dried oregano
    5. 1 tbs. dried basil

    2. 1/4 cup coconut milk (canned)

    4. 1 capsicum chopped
    5. 1 zucchini grated (squeeze out excess juice with a tea towel)

    7. coconut oil
    now what
    1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
    2. Mix all of your base ingredients together in a bowl.
    3. Once combined, press the mixture into the base of a large casserole dish (around 30cm x 20cm).
    4. Make sure the meat base is even and firmly pressed down.
    5. Place the base into the oven for 15 minutes.
    6. Meanwhile, heat a little coconut oil in a hot pan.
    7. Place the sweet potatoes into the pan and fry them up until crispy.
    8. Your meat base should be done by now (it doesn't need to be completely cooked as it will go back into the oven).
    9. There may be a little excess oil, carefully pour this out.
    10. Place the sweet potatoes over the meat base, covering it evenly.
    11. Sprinkle the capsicum over the sweet potatoes, followed by the zucchini.
    12. In a bowl combine the whisked eggs and milk.
    13. Now pour the egg mix over the meat and veggies.
    14. Place back into the oven for a further 25 minutes.
    15. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
    16. Cut into slices and serve with mashed avocado.

    1. Looks like a winner! I always love finding simple yet tasty looking recipes on other blogs 🙂

      As for the pushups yep you’re right they are killers! I’ve been attempting to incorporate more body weight movements into my routine (pushups, pullups, squats, planks etc) best thing is as you say you can do most of them at home!

    2. It’s totally delicious Naz! We are loving push ups at the moment! Such a great workout- whenever, where ever!

    4. Just wondering how this recipe freezes plz? Made the creamy chicken pasta tonight, awesome

    5. Hi Carly! Thanks for your comment and we’re glad to hear you liked the creamy chicken pasta – that’s our all time favourite! 🙂 You can definitely freeze the meache! You could do it in separate portions and defrost as you need each portion or freeze whole for an easy pre-made dinner! 🙂 e + c

    6. Sounds yum, going to try it this weekend 🙂

      Just want to clarify point 15… it says once the 15 mins is up and I’m wondering if you mean the 25 mins that was mentioned in point 14?

      Thanks 🙂
