RECIPE: Healthy “Meat and Potatoes” Dinner

Looking for a fairly simple, hardy, healthy meal? This meal plan is a nod to my world’s best mother in law, who loves a good meat and potatoes meal.

Lynne, this one’s for you!

Meat: Local, grass-fed, hormone free beef (grill or bake for 15 minutes and slice),

Potatoes: sweet potato discs, parsnip mashed potatoes, or  stuffed eggplant

and, of course

Greens: (Because you should have them at every meal!) Mixed greens cucumber and celery salad with dressing

Dinner is served.

Now technically eggplant and parsnips are not potatoes, but I think if you give them a try, not only will you pack in more nutrients, decrease the glycemic load (for those of you watching your weight and wanting to prevent diabetes), you’ll discover an easy delicious new dish!

    This looks delicious and so did the sweet potato disks! We’ll have to try that tomorrow!

      Yes! Try! I live on sweet potato disks! (Sometimes w cheese, sometimes with a little olive oil and sea salt, but almost daily!)
