I really love to make simple, easy, home cooked meals. My family loves it too.
The great thing is whenever someone in your family has an allergy or special diet preference, its easy to substitute whatever you need.
For a long time my husband and I ate low-carb, high protein. The end result was that he lost weight, but I lost too much weight.
For the past year now, I have been trying to gain weight, (how many people have you ever heard say that?) but I don’t want to sabotage my husbands efforts of trying to be fit.
Now I try to balance out low carb meals with more home-style “regular” meals.
Tonight I made this low carb beef and vegetable dish for dinner. It doesn’t look pretty, but it is very easy and very tasty.
This original recipe I found was located here: http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/creamy_beef_veg_casserole.html
(That is a great website to find all kinds of low carb meals.)
Beef and Vegetable Dish
1.5 lb. ground beef, cooked
1 16 ounce package of frozen veggies (I used winter blend)
1/2 cup mayo
1 cup cheese (I used mozzarella)
seasoning (I used garlic and onion powder)
After you cook the ground beef so that it is no longer pink, then add in the mayo, cheese and seasoning. Mix well.
Get out a 9 x 13 baking dish, and lay the frozen vegetables in it, then put your beef and cheese mixture on top of it and mix slightly.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes till it is bubbly hot.
I have used frozen broccoli, cheddar cheese, and dry onion soup mix with good results too.
As you can see, this recipe can be adapted to suit your needs, and it takes less then an hour to get on the table.
