Sautéed Vegetables Transformed = 2 Vegetarian Dishes!

image

Still embracing our new diet, which we are quite enjoying as both my husband and I are seeing results and the weight is being shed, slowly but surely

We have really focused on our intake of fresh vegetables and protein. He has cut out pretty much all the carbs but yours truly hasn’t been able to do that. I have just reduced the amount! I’m sorry! I can’t live without bread and pasta!

Cous cous has become a great alternative, so that is what we had last night. Whilst I couldn’t resist making my boys a fluffy omelette using the prepared vegetables, which I must admit that I munched on too!

It was like making one and getting another dish for free! It worked well in both dishes and I know I will be making this combination again very soon! Hope you enjoy it! Have a tremendous Tuesday! Much love D x
