Lamb and Mushroom Dish with Quinoa for the FIT!
Do you want to be FIT? Well, STOP EATING JUNK and being LAZY!!!
A lot of us are really short on time lately and have minimal time to cook. If you’re working long hours and working out, sometimes food choices can be last minute. Last minute choices can lead to bad decisions or leave us eating foods that don’t have much flavor. So why suffer?
My schedule can get pretty hectic during the week with running my business and being on the road. I always make sure that I have all my meals planned ahead of time and I always keep my gym bag packed in my car. If I can eat healthy all week, than I think all of you can too! Please stop going to Subway or picking up DEAD FOOD! You can only succeed in life when you’re putting quality healthy meals in your body. It’s not as hard as you think if you just plan ahead and get creative. I’m here to help.
I’m calling this next recipe Muscle Man Meat and Mushroom.
If you’re a Bachelor lifting weights or a stay at home Mom…you can make this recipe without any stress and be guaranteed a happy tummy!
3-4 ounces of organic ground lamb
1 green organic scallion chopped
1 teaspoon organic minced garlic
3-4 sprays of organic non-stick olive oil
1 cup of organic Bella Mushrooms
1 cup of organic spinach
1/2 cup of organic parsley
1/2 teaspoon of unrefined sea salt
1 to 1 1/2 cup of Organic Quinoa Pasta by Andean’s Dream
Wash and dry your spinach, scallion and mushrooms under filtered water. Chop your scallion and mushrooms up on a cutting board once cleaned. Pull out your minced garlic. Heat your skillet to medium-high and spray non-stick olive oil spray in pan. Once heated, place minced garlic, scallions and mushrooms in pan. Reduce to medium heat and brown. Add in your ground lamb. Mix lamb into veggies and cook. While lamb is cooking, boil a small pot of water for your Quinoa Pasta. Once water is boiled, place measured quinoa in pot. Cook pasta until Al Dente. Drain pasta in a small strainer and put on the side until lamb is cooked. Add in spinach, parsley and salt to lamb. Mix all together. Once lamb is cooked, add in your cooked pasta to lamb and mix. Turn off stove and serve on a nice plate.
Note: I don’t use a lot of oil for this dish because lamb has a lot of natural fat on it’s own. Also, when you eat pasta “Al Dente” the pasta will be actually even less on the glycemic index. Al Dente is Italian for “to the teeth.” It means the pasta is cooked long enough that it’s not too crunchy nor too soft.
Purpose of Dish:
Quinoa is low in sugar and is great for those who need carbs and want to decrease sugar intake. Quinoa is loaded in amino acids. Lamb is considered a red meat, but the liver actually can metabolize lamb easier than beef because of the high selenium content. The spinach in this dish is cooked and cooked spinach is less acidic to the body as opposed to eating it raw. Some veggies are better eaten cooked. The purpose of this dish is to nourish your body and satisfy your hunger while healing your digestive tract. Yummy! This dish is so EASY! 20 minutes tops it will take you. Enjoy…..
