WHAT’S FOR LUNCH?

I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier, and lose a little weight, shooting for 25 lbs. So far I’ve lost 15lbs *yay me* but now the weight loss has slowed… or maybe it was that burger and animal fries and milkshake that I had at In n Out 😀 *shhhhh*

My friend and I are trying to cut out carbs, flour and rice, which makes meals a little difficult, since I am a bread fiend *sigh*. But I pulled out my trusty spiralizer and I was determined to make something healthy and delicious. I came up with Roasted lemon, garlic and herb chicken and a mushroom and veggie noodle stir fry.

It’s so much easier to eat veggies when they’re so bright and colorful and it feels like you’re eating pasta 😀 *and who doesn’t love guilt free veggie ‘pasta’*

What are you having for lunch today?

SAUTEED MUSHROOMS AND ONIONS

DSC_5677 DSC_5687 DSC_5857

  • 1/2 lb sliced button mushrooms (crimini works as well)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into wedges
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt the butter and olive oil together in a frying pan and add the mushrooms and onions; let them cook slowly, over medium heat, until the mushrooms are getting a little brown and the onions are nice and soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. While there’s still some moisture left from the mushrooms, add the Worcestershire sauce, pepper flakes and garlic salt.
  3. The mixture will thicken and it’s ready to serve.
  4. Serve with grilled steak and use leftovers for omelets.
