Beef Stroganoff. Lite.

In the last few days I’ve met a number of great chickas.  We’re all partaking in the same fitness challenge through a company called Weight Loss Rebels.  WLR is run by an amazing gal named Meg with a little help from her followers-turned-ambassadors, they’re all a wealth of great information.

She’s based out of Alberta which I really like and she has a no-bullshit philosophy on life, fitness and best of all, food.  I wrote a post last week about feeling fat (it was a really down day for me) and every time I feel that way I just have to log onto the Fit Bitch Facebook page and read a few of Meg’s, or her ambassadors, posts and I realise I’m not alone.  They get me.  She’s such a sport for putting up with my 429 daily questions, I really appreciate her guidance and expertise and am pumped to be part of this program.

Back to food.  This is what I had for supper tonight.  It was delightful and fit well within my macro goals.  My only problem was I only tasted the first bite because I burnt my tongue.  Idiot.  You know it’s good when your eyes eat it and your mouth hastily hits it before your brain can even think about saying STOP, blow on it! (that’s what she said).

Put the beef and bacon in my saute pan with the water and the beef stock and put on a lid.  I like to let it simmer for about 30 minutes on medium just to make the meat a little more tender.  Otherwise if the cow we butchered was older, it’s like chewing on leather.

After a half an hour, take the lid off and turn up the heat.  Add the yogurt and stir.  Keep on the heat another 5 minutes until it reduces and thickens up a bit.

I ate it with half a potato with butter and sauteed brussels sprouts and butternut squash then I made my lunch for tomorrow – booyah!
