We had a delicious and healthy meal last week thanks to Jeff's grilling skills and Pinterest. :)
Jeff and I have actually been trying to change our eating habits (like a lot) by excluding simple carbs (Jeff excludes all carbs), sweets, and dairy (except I get a pregnancy allowance of dairy). We have been at this healthy eating for about 2 months now and it can be so difficult at times to come up with meal ideas, especially when all I know how to cook are pastas and rice dishes! A meal just doesn't seem complete without bread, or pasta, or rice, but this meal left us satisfied and wanting nothing. And that's saying a lot for a girl who had her first brussels sprout in her late 20s.
I first saw this recipe on Pinterest for Lemon Parmesan Brussels Sprouts from Sugar and Grace. I thought it looked delicious, but sadly I did not have any Parmesan (not to mention, its not on the no dairy diet) or actual garlic cloves. So I tweaked the recipe a little by adding garlic salt and some dried garlic cloves, I also added lemon pepper instead of regular pepper to give it a little kick.
I thought they turned out great. I even got Wesley to eat one. only one.
Jeff grilled up some Tri Tip using a dry rub to season it. To find out how Jeff makes the perfect trip tip go HERE.
I added a little strawberry salad (aka, strawberries cut up), and dinner was served.
Now its your turn to share your favorite healthy meal with me!
