Tonight was a protein and veggie dinner. I am followin the Dukan diet, as you may know. It’s not so far away from the way we normally eat. We are huge meat/protein eaters and love veggies. I started a low carb regimen last year and found it made a big difference. I’m not huge on diets, but found that taking out the extra carbs helped a lot. Mainly helping my waisteline as well as hunger. I found if I eat larger portions of proteins and veggies, I’m satisfied and feel more full. Carbs just ended up making me more hungry a few hours after eating. I used to always make one veggie, one protein and one startch- that was my thing. Now I do 2 veggies and one protein. Anyway, I’ve been succesful on the Dukan diet. I had gained 8 extra pounds from the holiday treats and managed to loose more than that, almost 10 lbs. My Dukan diet was not intense as I put in my numbers and discovered my recomended weight loss would be 7 lbs. So I lost that plus more. I’m in the 3rd phase of the plan where i”m aloud cheese, bread, 2 starch meals and 2 splurge meals. I am cheating and having wine here and there, more like here! But it’s all working. I continue to do our protein days and protein and veggie days. So we had pork wrapped in red onion. I think this is much, much better with thin slices of Veal. But pork is ok, too. Just wrap each piece with a few pieces of sage, a few pieces of red onions, add salt and pepper, and herbs de provence. I squired it and put it on the grill. I think the grill has made our healthy living work! I also used my cali salt. It’s a red wine infused salt made from California wine and Sonoma salt. It’s gorgeous and the flavors pop. I grilled this for about 10 minutes. It was quite good, but the veal was 10 times better!
