Lamb Ouzi & Fetush for Dinner!

Daily Tidbit:  When trying to get more Veggies into your day and meals, consider trying international cuisines and recipes.  Above is a pic from my Middle Eastern dinner tonight, which was loaded with Veggies and utterly delicious!

Here are "5 Reasons to try Middle Eastern Food":


Oatmeal with Cinnamon & Walnuts for Breakfast!

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Walnuts
½ cup plain Oatmeal (cooked with Fat Free Milk, in microwave)
2 tbsp of plain Walnuts
2-3 shakes Plain Cinnamon on top
5 oz. glass of OJ
Regular Coffee, black


PBB Wrap:  Peanut Butter & Banana Wrap for lunch on the go!

Lunch:  In the car on the way to the pool
PBB Wrap - Peanut Butter & Banana Wrap
1 tbsp Low Sodium All Natural Peanut Butter
1 Banana
1 Whole Grain Wrap (Santa Fe)
Regular Coffee, Black

Dry Roasted Unsalted Almonds

Fresh Blueberries!

Snack:   1/2 cup of fresh Blueberries & 1/4 cup dry roasted unsalted Almonds, Fat Free Milk


Lamb Ouzi & Fetush
Lamb Ouzi wrapped in delicate Phyllo dough and baked!
Tahini Sauce served with fresh Veggies!
The steam poured out of the Ouzi when I cut into it - YUM!

Dinner: Dinner out with a Friend
Lamb Ouzi - Middle Eastern Dish - blended with carrots, sweet peas, corn, green beans, onions, almonds, raisins and basmati rice baked in a phyllo jacket. And in this case, with Lamb, something I rarely have and never cook at home.  This was delicious!!
It was served with Fetush, a salad made with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, green onion, bell pepper, radish, olives, fresh parsley, raisins, almonds, olive oil & lemon juice.  Served with a Tahini sauce topped with Zaatar (a Middle Eastern spice blend).  A perfect refreshing balance to the Ouzi.  Best meal I've had out in a long time!
Lots of Water


Dessert:  Passed on this after eating all that yummy rice!  But it wasn't easy saying no to the homemade Bakalava - a dessert made of phyllo dough layered with pistachios, walnuts and cinnamon topped with honey.  This just gave me a reason to return another time!
