Cabbage with Ground Beef….

1 head of Cabbage
1lb of ground beef ( I buy all natural, but you can use turkey, lean, whatever your heart desires)
Salt
Pepper
thyme
1 glove chopped Garlic
1 Onion
and a bit of water
1 tbsp Olive oil

Heat the oil in a wok, then add the garlic and chopped onion, sautee for a couple of Minutes, then add the ground beef. Season with Salt and Pepper to taste. Once the ground beef is browned, add chopped Cabbage and stir. add a 2-3 tbsp of water and cover. Reduce heat and let it cook, stir every 5-10 minutes. Season to taste with Salt, Pepper and Thyme. Cook till Cabbage is tender. Serve and top with a bit of Parmesan Cheese.
You can serve this over pasta, but since I try to go low carb for dinner I don’t.

My kids love this and so does my hubby and it’s a quick and healthy meal.

Enjoy!!!

Chia Pudding…

Like today, I like a breakfast that I can just grab from the fridge and don’t have to prep to much.
This Chia Pudding was something I found from the Instagram user hovkonditorn. She has ton’s of vegan recipes.
I had never heard of Chia before, it’s a seed and the texture of this dish reminds me of Tapioca. Since I love Tapioca I love this dish…
I make 4 at a time as they last in the fridge and my husband likes to eat them too.
One Serving:
2 1/2 Table spoons of Chia Seeds ( I buy the white ones)
3/4 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk (I don’t like regular, so you can use plain if you like)
1/2 scoop Protein Powder (I use vanilla)
Mix, put in the fridge and after 30mins Stir. This is very IMPORTANT!!! other wise you pudding will clump.
When you ready to eat, top with fruit. I like Strawberries and Blueberries. But I wanna try other fruits as well.

Nutrition Facts:
1 serving
120 calories, 4.5g fat, 11.5 grams of carbs and 7.5g protein. This is vary with the protein powder you use. Also this is without the fruit.
