Lamb Kabob

Lately, I’ve been introducing lamb into my diet. It was not an animal that I’d ever had until the last 5 months. I gotta admit, it’s pretty tasty. It’s also a nice diversion from beef, chicken, fish, bacon…

One of my favorites so far is a grilled lamb kabob. I marinate the lamb meat, some vegetables and then skewer them for the grill.

Pair this with the Paleo Hummus and you will be a very happy eater 🙂

Lamb and Vegetable Kabob

1 lb. boneless lamb meat
1 bell pepper
2 small zucchini
1 yellow squash
6-7 crimini mushrooms
1/4 red onion
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp.thyme
1 tsp.oregano
2 tsp. dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Cut the lamb into bite size pieces. Same with the vegetables. Leave the mushrooms whole if they are bite sized. Put the lamb in one bowl, the veggies in another.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon, oil, and spices.
  3. Pour half of oil mixture over lamb and toss to coat. Pour remaining oil over veggies.
  4. Let the meat marinate until it is room temperature.

  5. Skewer the meat, then the vegetables. Putting them on different skewers is better than mixing meat/veg on the same skewer. You’ll have more control over the cooking times of each.

  6. Make sure the grill is hot and then cook skewers over low heat . Rotate to cook both sides.
  7. Once done, remove skewers and serve the meat and veggie peices with paleo hummus or dairy-free ranch and some sweet potato fries!

Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
