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.

    Ready to Grill!

  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!

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
