Chargrilled organic lamb cutlets with a ‘swoosh’ of houmous (trying to be decorative and chef-y) with buttered cavolo nero, carrots and broccoli flowerlets. Colourful, rainbow, dark green and purple vegetables are all full of vitamins and minerals. The more colour you add into your vegetable choices the healthier the benefits.
Butter on the vegetables for good fats.
Pan fry scallops in a very hot pan with butter, olive oil or coconut oil. Sear or brown them very quickly so they don’t become rubbery.
In a separate frying pan heat the chorizo and already cooked new potatoes until browned.
Lightly boil tenderstem broccoli and add the samphire at the last minute.
So quick and easy and yummy.

You need to include good fats in your daily diet as they help regulate your metabolism, keep you feeling full longer, help transport vitamins and minerals around your body, and protect your vital organs.
A low fat diet is not good for you or even helps you to lose weight on a long term basis. But I am only including healthy fats not transfats or saturated fats in fast foods and processed foods.
