I generally make a protein and a veg combo for dinner. No starch, no carb. That’s what the glass is for! A good friend told me recently that to keep trim, you can either eat OR drink. Yup! Ok, but within reason. Carbs are delicious and I don’t shun them altogether, I just try to moderate. I frickin love bread and pasta and potatoes. Just not this week!
Tonight and last night, I happened to have wonderful proteins and veggie fixins for delicious, well-rounded meals. Last night – lamb. Tonight – pork.
I happened to have tzatziki on hand from a party over the weekend and some random ground lamb that looked good at the store.
Ta-da! Lamb meatballs over spaghetti squash with a tzatziki sauce atop! I was doing about a hundred things while making dinner last night, so I only got the final shot! But tonight, I had a little more time.
Tonight, pork and roasted corn and Brussel sprouts were on the menu. I’ve been having great successes with pork lately, sorry for the repetition. I roasted the veg with some chili oil, Mike’s Hot Honey, and basil infused olive oil. Just roast your Brussel sprouts forever and they will make you a believer. The heat of these additions totally mellow in the roasting; the sweetness of the veggies plays perfectly off the spice leaving just a hint of heat.
One way to eat well and smart is portion control, in the pic below, you can see a good example. This doesn’t always happen, but I try!!
