Since I just started back on Weight Watchers again (after two years of reaching my goal weight, I realized it was time to get back on track!!) I thought all this month I would share with you all some of my favorite Weight Watcher recipes.
The criteria I use for most of my recipes is that it has to be: 1. Easy 2. Healthy and 3. Delicious...this recipe is ALL of those things...
First, I start with a basket of beautiful, fresh and local produce.
Here in Florida, the next few months are FABULOUS for fresh fruits and vegetables (our summers can be too hot to grow some things). It's also perfect grilling weather too!
Next I chop everything into chunky, bite-size pieces.
Then I take a great piece of steak and chop that up as well...chicken or shrimp work well too, of course!
Next, I skewer everything onto my flexible wire skewers- these make it really easy to toss in a plastic bag for marinating- and you can fit a lot of pieces per skewer. I did veggies on one and steak on the other, since the steak takes a little longer to cook.
Then I mix up a simple marinade of olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper and chopped parsley.
Next, I throw everything into a plastic bag and let it marinate for a couple of hours.
When we are ready to eat, it only takes a few minutes on a hot grill and dinner is ready!
I like to serve k-bobs with rice, in this case, I made Cilantro Lime Rice.
Such an easy meal and so healthy too! Give it a try this sometime...
Note: If you are really watching your weight, skip the rice (the veggies and proteins are so filling you won't even miss it!)
