Those that have been following me on Facebook know that I am watching what I eat and increasing my exercise levels, in hopes to lose some excess weight. I have been rather successful, but the hardest part is to eat in moderation. I love good food and I enjoy it immensely. I know that I don’t have to eat like a rabbit to lose weight. Below is one the recipes I developed this past weekend that was very delicious and I plan on making it again.
1 tsp olive oil
1 shallot, minced
2 green onions, diced
1/2 lb ground lamb
1 cup of chopped Chinese pea pods
4 Brussels sprouts with the core removed and quartered
4 red potatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp of dried rosemary
1/8 tsp of fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp of granulated garlic
1/4 tsp Mrs. Dash Onion and Garlic
Makes 2 servings. Each serving has a protein, a starch, and two vegetables. Enjoy
Add one tsp of olive oil to a sauté pan. Mince one shallot and 2 green onions and begin to saute together.
After 2 minutes, crumble the 1/2 lb ground lamb into the pan and cook for two minutes. Add 1 cup of chopped Chinese pea pods, 4 Brussels sprouts and 4 thinly sliced red potatoes.
Continue to sauté for four more minutes. Add 1/4 tsp of dried rosemary, 1/8 tsp of fresh ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp of granulated garlic. Continue to sauté until the lamb is fully cooked and potatoes are tender. Makes 2 servings.
Each serving has a protein, a starch, and two vegetables. Enjoy!
