How delicious do these look 🤤 They were devoured after about 2 minutes of making them and now I NEED to make some more!!⁠ Such a simple yet nutritious and fun dinner


Nutrition tips:

  1. This dinner is perfect for those nights that you want to feel like you're splurging on a take-out treat but also want to keep to your goals!

  2. Lamb, as in the case of all red meats, is a great source of iron. Women and runners may require more iron than their male or non-athlete friends.

  3. This easy dinner provides a balance of protein, carbs and fats so that you feel satisfied after the meal.
