First 5 Lost!


I don't remember the last time I lost 5kg!
I guess that complaining yesterday really paid off
And pre-op is getting easier and easier for me
Yesterday at work I spent the whole shift searching for easy vegan meals that I could use to mix up my veggies a bit
I found this beautiful recipe which I am basically going to make every night because I love it!

Green Beans with Colored Peppers

1 handful green beans
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/4 cup red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup green bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper, if desired

1. In 12-inch skillet, cook green beans on Stove-Top as directed on bag. Drain; place beans on plate and loosely cover to keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix lemon juice, mustard, basil and thyme; set aside.

3. Add oil to same skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, just until tender.

4. Add green beans and lemon mixture to peppers; toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.

I changed it up a bit though and served it on a bed of iceberg lettuce
It was so delicious! Beats steamed veg :P

Thanks ladies

The recipe is amazing! I've already cut up all my veg for tonight so I can come home and chuck it in the fry pan.

Oh I sure am short, but not little yet :P
I can't imagine ,myself being one of those short and petite girls!

Thanks for all the support!
I hope that I'm somewhat "little" when summer hits!

Congrats on your loss, and thanks for sharing the recipe. It sounds heavenly. I can't have it on my pre-op, so it will be a while before I can try it, but I'm looking forward to it!
