Gingered Beef and Peppers

I am all for fast and nutritious when it comes to days that are non-stop. Today was no different. It was the first day of March Break and it was go, go, go from the second I opened my eyes and it still hasn’t stopped. I knew how ever that we needed a protein packed dinner to make up for the lunch we forgot to eat. Woops!

For this dish I like to buy the fast fry beef so all I have to do is slice it in strips which makes for quick prep. I also don’t eat red meat so I fry that beef in a separate pan from the veggies. Once the dish is almost done I transfer some of the veggie mixture to the cooked beef and mix well then everyone is happy.

Also, if you prefer the vegetarian version but want more “umpf” try adding chunky bits of portobello mushroom or soy sauce marinated tofu. Only 6 Weight Watchers points and a whopping 26g of protein.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
