Default Ground Beef Curry (Keema) - 6 Servings

24 oz ground beef
3 cups finely chopped onions
1 cup finely chopped celery
2 cups diced tomatos
2 tsps ginger/garlic paste
green chillies (optional)
4-6 tsp spices - use any spices you have such as garam masala, East Indian bottle masala, Bafad masala all of which can be purchased at an Indian store
3 small potatos (optional)

Method:
On low heat, saute the onions and celery in their own juices. If you prefer to spray some PAM or use your fat portion for the day (oil) you may do so. When softened, add tomatoes, ginger/garlic paste, green chillies and spices. Increase heat to low-medium. The amount of spices you use is really on the level of heat you prefer in your food. At a minimum, try and use 4 tsps or you may end up with not much in flavour. Potatoes soak up some of the spice. If you choose not to add potatoes, you can reduce the amount of spice you are using.
Cook this mix until the tomatoes have almost disintegrated, roughly 6-8 mins. Add ground beef, cover and cook for about 20 mins. Add the potatoes and cover. Cook until potatoes are done, roughly about 45 mins. You may choose to use Mrs Dash Table Blend to add a little more flavour to your curry. You know your dish is done when the potatoes are cooked, but the dish still looks moist. Cooking with the lid on will ensure your meat and potatoes cook evenly and prevent drying.

1 Protein
1 Vegetable
1/2 Starch
100% flavour

Enjoy your curry on its own or with whole wheat pita.

Default Not so Devilish Eggs

My favourite secret ingredient in everything lately is mustard. Since it is the only condiment we can use!

-2 Eggs (Boiled)
-1 tsp mayo
-1 tsp mustard
-2 tsp chives
-pinch of black pepper
-paprika

Cut your eggs in half lengthwise, remove yokes, put in bowl and mash with mayo, mustard, chives and black pepper.

Spoon out into the 4 egg white hollows, sprinkle with paprika.

Serves 1
Equals: 1 protein and 1 fat

is awesome with fresh veggies, I make up a little deli plate of my devilled eggs and some mini carrots and cucumber slices.

They taste so good I somehow feel like im cheating!
