Now doesn’t that sound simple?
Literally quiches used to frighten me. I thought they were super intimidating to make and the only time I would eat them is when I went out for breakfast. But one day I felt super experimental in the kitchen and went for it.
Not many people know, but June is actually National Dairy Month. Being that it is national dairy month, it has inspired me to incorporate more dairy into my diet this month. Today I’ve teamed up with the Florida Dairy Farmers to make this lighter breakfast quiche recipe that I’m sharing.
Luckily, it was one of those experiments that went extremely right instead of becoming a catastrophic failure (trust me, I’ve had quite a few of these and I hate wasting food).
Now since it’s National Dairy Month, I wanted to share a little bit of dairy history with you.
- For generations, Florida’s more than 130 dairy farming families have remained true to their values & committed to producing a fresh supply of wholesome, quality milk. These hardworking men & women are caretakers of their cows, stewards of the land, & leaders in their communities.
- Most of the dairy cows living in Florida are Holsteins (the black and white cows).
- Lafayette and Okeechobee are Florida’s leading dairy counties.
- Most Florida dairy herds range in size from 150 cows to 5,000 cows.
- The state’s more than 130 dairy farms are primarily owned and operated bysecond and third-generation farmers.
- Florida dairy farmers recycle about 170,000 tons of byproducts such ascitrus pulp, brewers’ grain and whole cottonseed that are consumed by the cows instead of ending up in landfills.
- There are about 123,000 dairy cows in Florida that collectively produceabout 2.34 billion pounds of milk a year.
- The total represents 277 million gallons of Florida-produced milk in thegrocery store.
- Each Florida dairy cow produces about 6-8 gallons of milk each day and ismilked 2-3 times per day.
- Milk contains 9 essential nutrients and vitamins: protein, vitamins A, D, andB12, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, niacin, zinc, and magnesium
